MIAMI, Oct. 21 (UPI) — Four MLB teams will battle in respective best-of-seven game ALCS and NLCS matchups to headline this weekend’s sports schedule. The first weekend NBA games from the 2022-23 season and the MLS Cup playoffs also will air.

Hundreds of other games from the NHL regular season, college football campaign and NFL will fill any coverage gaps for sports fans.

Formula 1’s United States Grand Prix and the NASCAR Cup Series playoffs’ Dixie Vodka 400 will both run Sunday.

Elite golfers will compete through Sunday in a PGA Tour tournament. UFC fights and boxing bouts also pack the weekend sports menu.

But the New York Yankees, Houston Astros, Philadelphia Phillies and San Diego Padres will play in the premier games, as the four teams vie for spots in the World Series.
