The 2021 MLB playoffs are finally here.
After expanding to 16 teams in 2020, Major League Baseball returns to its familiar 10-team postseason format in 2021, starting with a Boston Red Sox victory over the New York Yankees in the American League Wild Card Game. The Red Sox went on to shock the Tampa Bay Rays by defeating them 3-1 in one ALDS series, while the Houston Astros took care of business against the Chicago White Sox in the other. Houston then eliminated Boston in Game 6 of the ALCS, reaching the World Series for the third time in five years.
In the National League, the Los Angeles Dodgers had a walk-off win in their wild-card game against the St. Louis Cardinals. They then won an epic five-game NLDS against their rival San Francisco Giants, while the Atlanta Braves secured a second straight NLCS appearance by eliminating the Milwaukee Brewers in four games. The Braves went on to upset the Dodgers in a six-game NLCS to end L.A.’s World Series title defense.
