MLB, #Cubs announce NLDS start times
The Cubs will play their first postseason game at Wrigley Field since 2008 on Monday, and the start time is a little fluid. If there are four postseason games on Monday, Game 3 of the National League Division Series between the Cubs and the Cardinals will start at 5:07 p.m. CT. If there are only two or three postseason games on Monday, the Cubs’ Game 3 will begin at 3:37 p.m. CT.
Monday’s schedule includes Game 3 of the NLDS between the Mets and Dodgers, and also could include Game 4’s for both of the American League Division Series.
Monday’s game will be the first postseason game at Wrigley Field since Game 2 of the NLDS between the Cubs and Dodgers on Oct. 2, 2008. Chicago lost that game, 10-3, and was swept in the best of five series.
If there is a Game 4 in the Cubs vs. Cardinals’ NLDS, it will start at 3:37 p.m. CT on Tuesday, but could move to 7:07 p.m. CT if the Mets and Dodgers NLDS series has ended. If Game 5 is necessary, it would be played at Busch Stadium on Oct. 15 and start at either 3:37 p.m. CT or 7:07 p.m. CT, again depending on the Mets-Dodgers series.
