Should the Indians win on Wednesday, they would travel to Boston for Games 1 and 2 of the American League Division Series on Friday, Oct. 4 and Saturday, Oct. 5, at Fenway Park.

If the Indians advance to the American League Championship Series, it would begin on Saturday, October 12, in the home park of the winner of the other American League Division Series.
