The Tigers need to win 3 games to get to the WS and the Rangers need to win 1.
ALDS: First team to win 3. The Tigers beat the Yankees 3-2 in the series and the Rangers beat the Rays 3-1 in the series.
ALCS: First team to win 4. The series is 3-1 Rangers.
NLDS: First team to win 3. The Cardinals beat the Phillies 3-2 and the Brewers beat the Dbacks 3-2.
NLCS: First team to win 4. The Cardinals lead the series 2-1.
WS: First team to win 4 games.
Not that hard of a concept.

This is the 2nd round of the playoffs, which is a best 4 out of 7 series. The Rangers won 3 games going into today's and the Tigers won 1. So this is the final game of the ALCS if the Rangers win, but not if the Tigers win. The first team to get 4 wins in this series goes onto the world series.

They are in a best of 7 series, so whoever wins 4 games first will advance to the next round of the playoffs, which will be the World Series. They will play the winner of the Cardinals/Brewers 7-game series. MLB playoffs start with 8 teams (4 National League and 4 American League). The first round is a best of 5 series. The winners of that round, this year, were the cardinals, brewers, rangers, and tigers. These teams are now in the league championship series. The two winners of the league championship series will play in the world series.

Whoever wins 4 games will go to the world series. Texas has 3 wins, 1 more and they go.

The LCS are whoever takes four games, (out of seven) and the LDS is a little shorter with only 5 games being played. Whoever takes the LCS goes to the World series.
