2023 MLB playoffs live updates: Phillies up big over Braves, Twins-Astros tied

The 2023 MLB postseason rolls on! We know one of the four teams advancing to the league championship series, after the Texas Rangers completed their surprising sweep of the Baltimore Orioles on Tuesday. The remaining three Division Series are in action Wednesday with a lot still to be determined.

An NLDS rematch between the Atlanta Braves and Philadelphia Phillies shifts north to the City of Brotherly Love. The 104-win Braves have all the momentum after their “unbelievable” Game 2 comeback to even the series Monday, but the Phillies are back in front of their home crowd with Aaron Nola taking the mound against Atlanta’s Bryce Elder.

Then, the Houston Astros look to finish off the Minnesota Twins in Minnesota in Game 4 of that series. Both teams will likely lean on their bullpens in this one as Jose Urquidy takes the mound for Houston opposite Joe Ryan for Minnesota.

In the nightcap, the Arizona Diamondbacks look to complete a sweep of the NL West rival Los Angeles Dodgers. Veteran Lance Lynn takes the mound for the Dodgers against Arizona rookie Brandon Pfaadt, with the Dodgers looking to avoid a second straight NLDS defeat to a division foe.

We’ve got you covered with all the action, from top plays to the best moments from the “MLB on FOX” crew.
