As expected with the National League’s top seed residing in the western time zone — and the possibility of a series between two 100-win teams looming — the Milwaukee Brewers and Atlanta Braves will play the first two games of their NLDS series during the day.

Major League Baseball announced start times for postseason games through Sunday today.

Game 1 between the Brewers and Braves at American Family Field will start at about 3:37 p.m. Milwaukee time. Game 2 will be at 4:07 p.m. Saturday.

Both games will be aired on TBS.

A start time for Game 3, which will be held in Atlanta, has not yet been announced.

The Brewers have not yet officially announced a starter for Game 1, but Brandon Woodruff seems to be a safe bet. The Braves will be starting Charlie Morton.

We’re guessing there will be plenty of people taking a half-day on Friday before heading to the park.
