Cards set to travel to Atlanta to continue Wild ride
ST. LOUIS -- Major League Baseball announced on Wednesday that Friday's National League Wild Card game between the Cardinals and Braves will start at 4:07 p.m. CT. The elimination game will be on TBS, which will then televise the American League Wild Card game later that night.

Even with the off-day on Thursday, the Cardinals will travel to Atlanta after wrapping up the regular season at home on Wednesday night. The club will hold a 2 p.m. workout at Turner Field on Thursday. The Braves are scheduled to work out earlier in the afternoon.

With the Nationals' victory on Wednesday afternoon, the Cardinals also know how the schedule will shake out if they can move past the Braves. By finishing with the NL's best record, Washington will draw the winner of the Wild Card game in the best-of-five NL Division Series.

The winning Wild Card team would host the first two games of that NLDS, with Game 1 scheduled for Sunday. The Reds and Giants will meet in the other NL best-of-five series.
