Jon Lester is scheduled to throw the first pitch of Game 1 of the playoffs at 8:15 p.m. Friday.

As if the Cubs didn’t already feel like they were ready for prime time this postseason, MLB made it official Monday announcing the Cubs first two playoff games will be aired during the prime time slots Friday and Saturday from Wrigley Field.

The Cubs, who host the Mets-Giants wild-card winner, open the National League Division Series at 8:15 p.m. Friday (Fox Sports 1).

Game 2 on Saturday starts at 7:08 p.m.

The Mets and Giants play in New York on Wednesday in a 7:09 p.m. elimination game on ESPN.

MLB won’t announce start times for the rest of opening series until the matchups are determined.
