Game times and television info

With a five-game victory in the ALDS, the Tigers advance to the American League Championship Series for the third consecutive year. This time Detroit will meet the Red Sox for the right to play in the World Series. The ALCS opens Saturday night in Boston, and the entirety of the series will be televised on FOX.

The ALCS will be in the 8 p.m. hour for most starts, though Tuesday in Detroit is an exception. That's an afternoon game.

Game 6's start time will shift depending on the NLCS. If either the Dodgers or Cardinals have advanced to the World Series, the game will be played in the 8 p.m. hour. If the NLCS has not been decided, Game 6 is set for an afternoon start.
