The stage is all but set for the Championship Series of baseball’s 2022 playoffs. The last remaining slot still up for grabs will go to the winner of the American League matchup between the New York Yankees and the Cleveland Guardians. The Guardians are up 2-1 after a dramatic walkoff victory in Game 3, and if they win tonight at home, they’ll face the Astros in the ALCS. The Yankees will try to stave off elimination and force a decisive Game 5 on Monday in the Bronx. Game 4 is set for 7:07 p.m. ET (6:07 p.m. CT, 4:07 p.m. PT) on Sunday on TBS.
