MLB Playoffs, Rangers Vs. Rays ALDS Schedule And TV Times

Ron Washington's Rangers are set to open the 2011 MLB Playoffs on Friday, as they play host to the Tampa Bay Rays in Game 1 of the ALDS. Bud Selig and the schedule makers decided to have the Rangers/Rays open up the 2011 postseason this year, as their game marks the first game of the playoffs.

Texas' schedule for the ALDS is as follows:

Game 1, Friday, September 30: Rays (Matt Moore) @ Rangers (C.J. Wilson), 4:07 p.m. CDT on TBS
Game 2, Saturday, October 1:  Rays (James Shields) @ Rangers (Derek Holland), 6:07 p.m. CDT on TNT
Game 3, Monday, October 3: Rangers (TBD) @ Rays (TBD), 4:07 p.m. CDT on TBS
Game 4, Tuesday, October 4: Rangers (TBD) @ Rays (TBD), time TBD
Game 5, Thursday, October 6: Rays @ Rangers, time TBD

Obviously, Games 4 and 5 are only if necessary as the series could end in three games if either Tampa Bay or Texas sweeps.
