2012 MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL PLAYOFFS
Various Networks, 12:00 p.m. ET
The unprecedented wild-card playoff system instituted this year, which had the St. Louis Cardinals and Baltimore Orioles advancing in sudden-death games, makes this first Sunday of postseason play especially complicated. Game 2 of the Oakland Athletics-Detroit Tigers contest is played at noon ET, available on the MLB Network. The rest of the day’s games are on TBS: Washington Nationals vs. the Cardinals at 3 p.m. ET, New York Yankees vs. the Orioles at 6 p.m. ET, and, finally, the Cincinnati Reds vs. San Francisco Giants at 9:30 p.m. That’s a solid 12 hours of postseason baseball, for those willing to enjoy or endure.
