Division and League Championship Series Full Episode Guide

  • The Giants are in the Fall Classic for the third time in five seasons, with Travis Ishikawa's three-run blast the first NLCS-clinching walk-off since San Francisco beat St. Louis in '02. Michael Morse's homer tied it in the eighth, offsetting two shots off series MVP Madison Bumgarner.

  • ALCS MVP Lorenzo Cain and the Royals rode a two-run first inning to a sweep of the Orioles and headed to the World Series 8-0 in the postseason, thanks again to dominant pitching and stellar defense, highlighted by a wall-crashing catch from left fielder Alex Gordon.

  • The Giants keep pouncing on mistakes, and they tied the game and took the lead when Matt Adams couldn't get an out at home on back-to-back plays in the sixth. Buster Posey, who plated three, added an RBI single, and San Francisco moved to within one win of the World Series.

  • Dynamite defense from Mike Moustakas, a solid start by Jeremy Guthrie and a lights-out bullpen was enough for the Royals to make Billy Butler's sac fly and Alex Gordon's RBI groundout stand up in a victory over the Orioles that put K.C. one win from the World Series.

  • Held hitless from Tim Hudson's fourth-inning single until the 10th, San Francisco put the first two on to set up Gregor Blanco's sacrifice bunt. But Cards reliever Randy Choate threw the ball wide of first, allowing the winning run to score and the Giants to take a 2-1 NLCS lead.

  • After losing Yadier Molina in the sixth and watching the Giants go up in the seventh, the Cards homered in three straight frames -- the last of which was Kolten Wong's walk-off in the ninth. Matt Adams hit a go-ahead blast in the eighth, but a wild pitch set up Wong's heroics.

  • Madison Bumgarner settled in after Pablo Sandoval and Co. got to Adam Wainwright early, going 7 2/3 scoreless to up his road shutout streak to a playoff-record 26 2/3 straight frames, as the Giants got the upper hand in the NLCS with their seventh straight postseason road win.

  • Alex Gordon's fourth RBI came on a homer that sparked a three-run 10th inning and sent the Royals to a win over the Orioles in Game 1 of the ALCS. Mike Moustakas and Alcides Escobar also went deep for Kansas City, which won in extras for the fourth time this postseason.

  • After a Bryce Harper homer tied the game in the seventh, reliever Aaron Barrett's wild pitch with the bases full in the bottom of the frame allowed Joe Panik to score the go-ahead run, and the Giants' bullpen held off the gritty Nats to secure a spot in the NLCS vs.

  • After chasing Clayton Kershaw in a go-ahead seventh in Game 1, the Cards did it again in the deciding Game 4, as Matt Adams' three-run shot off the NL Cy Young Award favorite -- who was pitching on three days' rest -- helped seal St. Louis' fourth straight trip to the NLCS.

  • Locked in a scoreless duel in the seventh, the Nationals scored two on Madison Bumgarner's wild throw to third on a sac bunt. Asdrubal Cabrera added an RBI, Bryce Harper homered in the ninth and Drew Storen finished it for Doug Fister, extending the NLDS in San Francisco.

  • Kolten Wong hit a go-ahead two-run homer in the seventh after Matt Carpenter continued his own power tear with a solo shot in the third, and that was enough for John Lackey, who fanned eight over seven stellar frames to move the Cards within a win of the NLCS.

  • K.C. will play for the pennant for the first time since 1985, sweeping with hits and "D" in Game 3. Mike Trout went deep in the first, but Alex Gordon's double chased C.J. Wilson, Eric Hosmer and Mike Moustakas homered and Lorenzo Cain's catches ended the Halos' biggest threat.

  • The O's are back in the ALCS for the first time since 1997, thanks to Nelson Cruz's eighth homer in nine postseason games against the Tigers -- a tiebreaking two-run shot -- and Bud Norris' 6 1/3 scoreless innings in his playoff debut as he outdueled David Price in Detroit.

  • Brandon Belt's shot in the 18th decided the longest MLB playoff game (6:23) and put the Giants one win from the NLCS. Nine frames earlier, Pablo Sandoval sent it to extras with a two-out knock off Nats closer Drew Storen, who couldn't save it for a dominant Jordan Zimmermann.

  • After Zack Greinke delivered seven scoreless innings, J.P. Howell served up a game-tying homer to Dodgers nemesis Matt Carpenter in the eighth, but Matt Kemp answered with a blast in the bottom of the frame to help L.A. pull even with the Cardinals at a game apiece.

  • Playing in their third straight extra-inning postseason game, K.C. took a 2-0 ALDS lead after Eric Hosmer hit a two-run homer in the 11th off Angels reliever Kevin Jepsen. The Royals' bullpen threw four scoreless frames following Yordano Ventura's strong start.

  • The O's offense once again erupted in the eighth, following Game 1's eight-run frame with four runs in Game 2 to take a commanding 2-0 ALDS lead over the Tigers. Pinch-hitter Delmon Young delivered a go-ahead three-run double as Detroit's relief struggles continued.

  • The Dodgers raced out to a five-run lead with Clayton Kershaw on the hill, but Matt Carpenter spearheaded a Cards uprising with a homer in the sixth and a go-ahead three-run double in an eight-run seventh as St. Louis claimed Game 1 of the NLDS with a stirring comeback.

  • The Giants held off a late charge, quieting the crowd in an NL-record ninth straight playoff W. After Jake Peavy's 5 2/3 scoreless, Hunter Strickland nixed a threat before allowing two Nats shots, one a big blast by Bryce Harper, and the 'pen escaped in the eighth before a clean ninth.

  • Mike Moustakas opened the 11th inning with a blast and Greg Holland locked it up, putting the finishing touches on a thriller to open the series. David Freese and Chris Iannetta hit solo shots off Jason Vargas, who dueled with Jered Weaver before the bullpens held on into extras.

  • Miguel Cabrera's solo shot in the top of the eighth cut the Tigers' Game 1 deficit to one, but the Orioles responded with an eight-run frame, sparked by an RBI single from Detroit nemesis Nelson Cruz, who crushed a two-run homer in the first off losing pitcher Max Scherzer.

  • Brandon Crawford hit the first slam by a shortstop in postseason history, and Madison Bumgarner took it from there, fanning 10 in a four-hit shutout for the advancing Giants. Brandon Belt had three RBIs after Edinson Volquez (worst start since July) left, ending Buctober.

  • Brandon Moss belted two homers, but Kansas City battled back to force extras. After Alberto Callaspo put the A's ahead in the 12th, Eric Hosmer hit a one-out triple, scored on Christian Colon's infield single and then Salvador Perez belted a walk-off single.

  • Rookie Michael Wacha's legend grew in Game 6 as he took NLCS MVP honors, while Clayton Kershaw (four-plus IP, 7 ER, 10 H) couldn't contain the Cards. With three hits, Carlos Beltran led the charge as St. Louis batted around on two occasions to dispatch L.A. and secure the pennant.

  • An inning after the Tigers grabbed their first lead, Shane Victorino put the Red Sox back on top to stay with a grand slam in the seventh, and ALCS MVP Koji Uehara punched Boston's ticket to its third Fall Classic in 10 years with his third save of the series in the ninth.

  • Launching the first Dodgers homer of the NLCS, Adrian Gonzalez helped secure a Game 6 with his pair of jacks; Carl Crawford and A.J. Ellis also went deep to back Zack Greinke. The Cards attempted a rally, but Kenley Jansen cut it short to send the series back to St. Louis.

  • Mike Napoli homered for the second time in three games in Boston's three-run second inning and doubled and scored the deciding run on a wild pitch in the third as the Red Sox edged the Tigers to take a 3-2 ALCS lead, one win from reaching the World Series.

  • Torii Hunter and Miguel Cabrera batted first and second while Austin Jackson moved down to eighth in a shaken-up Tigers lineup, and the trio responded with a combined six RBIs behind Doug Fister, who held the Red Sox to one run in six innings as Detroit evened the ALCS, 2-2.

  • Hyun-Jin Ryu didn't allow a hit until the fifth and went seven scoreless to dash the Cards' hopes of a 3-0 NLCS lead. Adrian Gonzalez had an RBI double off Adam Wainwright, and a Yasiel Puig RBI triple snapped the rookie's 0-for-11 skid. Hanley Ramirez, playing injured, added insurance.

  • John Lackey threw 6 2/3 innings of a combined shutout as Red Sox pitchers made Mike Napoli's seventh-inning home run off Justin Verlander stand up in Game 3 of the ALCS. Verlander fanned 10 in eight dominant innings, but the Tigers fell behind, two games to one.

  • In a duel with Cy Young winner Clayton Kershaw, Michael Wacha pitched 6 2/3 innings as the Cardinals got just enough offense -- Jon Jay's sacrifice fly -- to take a 2-0 NLCS lead heading to Los Angeles. Wacha fanned eight, and four St. Louis relievers finished off the shutout.

  • Max Scherzer didn't allow a hit until the sixth and left after seven with a 5-1 lead, but David Ortiz hit a game-tying grand slam off Tigers closer Joaquin Benoit in the eighth and Jarrod Saltalamacchia delivered a walk-off single in the ninth as the Red Sox claimed Game 2 of the ALCS.

  • After throwing out the go-ahead run at home plate in the 10th, Carlos Beltran made the Cardinals walk-off winners in the 13th with an RBI single. Beltran also picked up Joe Kelly in the third, tying the game with a two-run double, the only blemish against Zack Greinke in the NLCS opener.

  • Anibal Sanchez, with 12 K's in six innings, paved the way as the Tigers came within two outs of combining for the first no-hitter in League Championship Series history in Game 1 of the ALCS. The Red Sox, who finished with one hit, were spectacular on defense but struck out 17 times.

  • Continuing his postseason dominance of the A's, Justin Verlander no-hit them for 6 2/3 innings, whiffing 10 in eight scoreless frames to lift Detroit to its third straight ALCS. Verlander, who has a playoff scoreless innings streak of 30 against the A's, was aided by Miguel Cabrera's blast.

  • There will be a decisive Game 5, thanks to clutch homers from Jhonny Peralta and Victor Martinez.

  • Unable to break through despite multiple early opportunities, the Red Sox erased a one-run deficit in the seventh with a wild pitch and an infield single to finally put away the Rays in Game 4 and advance to the ALCS.

  • Juan Uribe slugged a two-run homer in the eighth inning as the Dodgers claimed their first NL Championship Series berth since 2009. The Braves had earlier overcome two Carl Crawford homers and outlasted Clayton Kershaw's first career start on short rest before Uribe's decisive shot.

  • Michael Wacha retired the first 15 Pirates before Russell Martin's walk, then served up a Pedro Alvarez solo shot with one out in the eighth to end his no-hit bid. But thanks to the rookie's gem and Matt Holliday's homer, the Cards held on, forcing the NLDS back to St. Louis for Game 5.

  • Jose Lobaton crushed a walk-off homer off Koji Uehara into the Rays Touch Tank in the bottom of the ninth to give Tampa Bay new life and push the ALDS to a Game 4. Evan Longoria swatted a three-run homer in the fifth.

  • Following two low-scoring games, the offenses awoke in Game 3 in Detroit, with Josh Reddick, Brandon Moss and Seth Smith going deep off Tigers starter -- and AL ERA leader -- Anibal Sanchez to put the A's one win from a trip to the ALCS. Oakland can punch its ticket Tuesday.

  • Neither Hyun-Jin Ryu nor Julio Teheran lasted past the third, but the Dodgers picked up their starter with an offensive onslaught to put themselves one win away from the NLCS. Hanley Ramirez, Yasiel Puig and Juan Uribe had big hits in a four-run fourth that put the game away.

  • Carlos Beltran drove in all three of the Cards' runs -- including one on a game-tying shot in the eighth -- but Pedro Alvarez's RBI knock in the bottom of the frame handed control, both in Game 3 and in the NLDS, to the Bucs. Russell Martin followed with an insurance run.

  • Following a scoreless pitchers' duel between A's rookie Sonny Gray (eight innings, four hits, nine K's) and Tigers star Justin Verlander (seven innings, four hits, 11 K's), Stephen Vogt was the hero, lining a bases-loaded single as the A's walked off in the ninth to even the ALDS at 1.

  • Jacoby Ellsbury had three hits and scored three runs, David Ortiz homered twice off David Price and Dustin Pedroia drove in three runs to help the Red Sox, who got superb bullpen work, take a dominating 2-0 ALDS lead.

  • Jason Heyward stroked a two-run single in the seventh inning that proved to be crucial when Hanley Ramirez homered in the eighth to bring the Dodgers within a run. Mike Minor's strong start and Atlanta's defense loomed large in sending the NLDS to Los Angeles all square.

  • With the exception of Yoenis Cespedes' two-run blast in the seventh, Max Scherzer dominated the A's in Game 1, whiffing 11 over seven brilliant innings. A three-run first off Bartolo Colon held up as Detroit -- with stellar work from its bullpen -- seized home-field advantage in the ALDS.

  • Rays right fielder Wil Myers' inexplicable decision to let a fly ball drop behind him opened the door to Boston's five-run fourth inning and turned the momentum in Game 1 to the Fenway faithful. Jon Lester then cruised to victory.

  • Clayton Kershaw allowed just three hits and struck out 12 to lead the Dodgers in their Division Series-opening victory. Adrian Gonzalez homered to plate two of the five runs off the Braves' Kris Medlen, while Chris Johnson's RBI single accounted for the only damage vs. Kershaw.

  • The Cards didn't stop with Carlos Beltran's three-run jack (which tied Babe Ruth for eighth all time in postseason homers at 15), but Adam Wainwright hardly needed all the support, as he didn't give up a hit until the fourth, allowed only Pedro Alvarez's solo shot and tallied nine K's.

  • Desmond Jennings' two-out, two-run double in the fourth gave Alex Cobb some vital breathing room in the American League Wild Card Game as the Rays secured a Division Series matchup vs. AL East rival Boston.

  • The Pirates earned their first postseason victory since 1992 with a bang. Russell Martin hit two home runs -- and Marlon Byrd went deep in his first career postseason at-bat -- as part of a 13-hit barrage, and starter Francisco Liriano held the Reds to one run over seven innings.
