MILWAUKEE — The Brewers have known for a few days that they were going to be playing the Atlanta Braves in the first round of the National League playoffs. What they didn’t know was when they would play them.

That question is now answered, as Major League Baseball is announcing the schedule for the first group of postseason games.

Game 1 of the National League Division Series between the Brewers and Braves will get underway Friday at 3:37 p.m. central time at American Family Field in Milwaukee. Game 2 will be played Saturday afternoon, with first pitch coming at 4:07 p.m. central time.

Games 1 and 2 will both be aired on TBS, meaning fans who haven’t been able to watch the team on Bally Sports Wisconsin this season will be able to watch the team in the postseason, as long as they have a cable or streaming service subscription that carries the network.

The series will shift to Atlanta for Game 3 of the series early next week. A time for that game has not been announced yet. Game times for Games 4, 5 and 6 — if they are needed — will also be announced at a later date.

This year marks the fourth straight playoff appearance for the Brewers. They will hope to advance to the National League Championship Series for the third time in 10 years if they can knock off the Braves.
