2023 MLB playoffs TV schedule: Game times, live stream with Phillies vs. Braves NLDS Game 4 gets on Thursday

Just five teams remain in the 2023 MLB playoff bracket as the Diamondbacks and Astros both advanced to the LCS round on Wednesday. Arizona and Houston knocked out the Dodgers and Twins, respectively, after the Rangers took out the Orioles on Tuesday. Now, only one LDS matchup remains: Braves vs. Phillies. The Phillies hold a 2-1 lead in the best-of-five series against MLB’s top seed, and Game 4 is set for Thursday night.

It will be a later first pitch at Citizens Bank Park as game time was pushed back two hours with Phillies-Braves serving as the only game of the day. 

The Diamondbacks await the winner of the Braves-Phillies series after knocking out the NL West champion Dodgers with a stunning three-game sweep. Arizona is in the NLCS for the first time since 2007, while the Dodgers were ousted in the NLDS for the second year in a row.

In the American League, it’s a Lone Star battle in the ALCS. Astros vs. Rangers starts Sunday after the Texas teams moved on. The Rangers swept the top-seeded Orioles, while the Astros made it to the ALCS for the seventh year in a row by taking out the Twins in four games.

The Dodgers, Twins and Orioles were sent home this round, and the Marlins, Brewers, Blue Jays and Rays were all eliminated from the playoffs in the wild-card round.

The NLDS could last through Saturday if Braves-Phillies goes five games, while the ALCS gets started Sunday. The 2023 MLB playoffs will last until at least Oct. 31, and a World Series Game 7 would take place on Saturday, Nov. 4.
