How the MLB playoffs work
Major League Baseball tweaked its postseason starting in 2022 as 12 total teams now qualify for the October tournament. The top two seeds in each league receive byes into the Division Series’. The remaining eight teams compete in Wild Card games.
In the first year of this format, the 6-seeded Phillies took advantage as they beat the Cardinals in a best-of-3 set, the Braves in a best-of-5 series, and the Padres in the NLCS to make it all the way to the World Series. Things were much less chaotic in the AL as 1-seed Houston went to the World Series and eventually won it all.
