UNDATED (AP) -- Six day games are taking place in Major League Baseball today.

In Philadelphia the Phillies and Braves put an end to what turned out to be a two-game series. The opening game on Tuesday was postponed and last night the Braves won 1-0. The Tigers are hosting the Indians this afternoon after losing to the Tribe 3-2 last night. The first game of their schedule three-game series was postponed as well on Tuesday. The Toronto at Minnesota game that was postponed last night is being made up today as part of a day-night doubleheader. In Arlington, Texas, the Rangers and Mariners wrap up a four-game series after the home team won two of the first three games. In the final game of their three-game series, Giants and Dodgers are squaring off in San Francisco. The home team has won the first two games. And in San Diego, the Padres are playing the Rockies in the fourth game of that series.

On tap tonight the schedule has Milwaukee at Pittsburgh, the Nationals at home to St. Louis, the Yankees at Tampa Bay, Chicago's White Sox at home to Boston and Kansas City at Houston.


UNDATED (AP) -- Tonight marks the second night of play in the Stanley Cup playoffs and four games are on the agenda.

In Denver the Central Division champion Avalanche open up with a game against Minnesota. They played five times during the season with the Avs winning four of the contests. This series marks the third time these teams have met in the opening round of the playoffs.

The second and third place teams from the Central open up play tonight with a game in St. Louis as the Blues entertain the Blackhawks. The Blues won the first three games played between the teams this season while the Blackhawks came back to win the remaining two. Each team had to battle with injuries in the final days of the regular season.

In a game featuring two teams from the Metropolitan Division, the Rangers are hosting the Flyers. They split the four regular season games with each team winning twice at home. The Flyers are starting the playoffs without the services of their top goalie, Steve Mason, who is out with an upper body injury.

And in the final game of the day San Jose, the runner-up in the Pacific Division, is home to Los Angles. This marks the third time since 2011 the Sharks and Kings have met in postseason play. L.A. won the regular season series with a 3-1-1 record.
