The first round of the playoffs, known as the American and National League Divisional Series' or ALDS/NLDS are a best of 5 format. The first team to win 3 games, advances to the next round which is the American and National League Championship Series or ALCS/NLCS. This series is a best of 7 format (first team to win 4 games) advances to the World Series which ALSO is a best of 7 format.
