One A.L. game and one N.L. game for your daytime enjoyment.

Erik Williams-USA TODAY Sports

There are four division series games today, with the first one starting at 1 p.m. CT and the last one at 8:30 p.m. CT — a full day of baseball!

There will be one game in each league this afternoon, and the same for tonight. This thread is for the day games — there will be a separate one for tonight’s two games posting at 5:30 p.m. CT. Note that these two day games start two hours apart, so they will probably overlap for an hour or so.

The Indians and Astros get going with a great pitching matchup, while the Rockies look to even up their series against the Brewers.

Here’s all the info you’ll need for the two afternoon games today.

Game time for Indians/Astros: 1:05 p.m. CT. TV: TBS. Announcers: Don Orsillo and Dennis Eckersley in the booth, with field reporter Hazel Mae.

Game time for Brewers/Rockies: 3:15 p.m. CT. TV: FS1. Announcers: Kenny Albert, David Cone and A.J. Pierzynski in the booth and Jon Morosi on the field.

Pitching matchups:

Tyler Anderson (Rockies) vs. Jhoulys Chacin (Brewers)

Corey Kluber (Indians) vs. Justin Verlander (Astros)
