The Cincinnati Reds take on the Pittsburgh Pirates tonight at 8:07 PM on TBS in the first game of the 2013 MLB playoffs. The game marks the second year of the new one-game playoff series between the wildcard teams. I think most baseball fans are in agreement that a 162-game season shouldn’t come down to a one-game playoff series, but at least it makes for an exciting Tuesday.
Notably, the Pirates haven’t been to the playoffs in 21 years and the Reds have only been to the playoffs three times during that same span. In other words, we’ve got a matchup tonight of two teams hungry to keep their playoff dreams alive. Check out the bars around you that will be showing the MLB playoffs by searching the toolbar above.
