2023 MLB wild-card series live updates: Rays-Rangers scoreless early

The MLB postseason rages on!

Following an exciting day of baseball on Tuesday, four teams face win-or-go-home situations on Wednesday in four Game 2s of the MLB wild-card series.

First, the Rays look to save their season as they take on the Rangers at home. Tampa Bay was blanked in Game 1, falling 4-0 with Texas getting seven shutout innings from Jordan Montgomery. Game 2 will feature a duel of two of the AL’s best pitchers this season, with Nathan Eovaldi taking the mound for the Rangers while the Rays call on Zach Eflin.

The AL Central-winning Twins will look to finish off the Blue Jays in Minnesota. Royce Lewis hit a pair of homers in Tuesday’s Game 1 to help drive the Twins to victory. José Berríos gets the start for Toronto as it tries to save its season while Sonny Gray hopes to continue the success he’s had over the last month for Minnesota.

The National League will take center stage later in the day. The NL Central-winning Brewers are on the brink of elimination after falling to the Diamondbacks in Game 1, 6-3. While the Brewers are home, they’ll have to go up against one of the NL’s best pitchers this season as Zac Gallen will take the bump for the Diamondbacks.

Meanwhile, the Phillies host the Marlins as they’re just one win away from going back to the NLDS for a second straight season. Philadelphia took Game 1, 4-1, and will call on Aaron Nola. Miami has Braxton Garrett on the bump.
