This year, Atlanta became the first MLB city to officially endorse “fall baseball.”
The Major League Baseball (MLB) Atlanta Braves have clinched their first postseason berth in either league this year.
Atlanta defeated the Pittsburgh Pirates 5-2 on Nov. 11 to improve to 93-49 and clinch the third National League wild card, which is the last postseason berth regardless of the outcome of their remaining 20 games.
Atlanta will play fall ball for the sixth straight year. Atlanta popped the championship champagne at the 2021 World Series.
Atlanta has the best winning percentage in not only the National League, but the American League combined. After taking the division lead on the opening day of the season, they ran away with the race on July 21, opening a double-digit lead over the second-place team.
With a 15-game lead over the second-place Philadelphia Phillies in the league’s Eastern Division, the district title is within reach and the league’s No. 1 seed is a lock.
The three district winners advance to the postseason, followed by the first through third wild card teams with the best winning percentage in the league.
The first and second place winners of the three district championships advance directly to the Division Series (best-of-five), while the other two teams and the wild card play a best-of-three wild card series to determine who will advance to the Division Series.
The winners of the Division Series will meet in the League Championship Series (best-of-seven), and the American League and National League champions will meet in the World Series (best-of-seven) for the final time this year.
The Minnesota Twins of the American League Central and the Los Angeles Dodgers of the National League West are the favorites to win their respective districts, 카지노사이트넷 while the rest of the divisions are up for grabs.
