If the Braves are forced into a one-game playoff for the wild card with either the Padres or the Giants, the Braves will have home field advantage by virtue of winning season series against both teams. The Braves went 4-2 vs. the Padres and 4-3 vs. the Giants.
If the Giants or Padres clinch the NL west and the other team is in a tie with the Braves, a one-game playoff for the wild card would be played on Monday at Turner Field. If the Giants, Padres and Braves end in a three-way tie, the Giants and Padres would play a one-game playoff for the NL West on Monday. The loser would fly to Atlanta for a one-game wild card playoff at Turner Field on Tuesday.
If the Braves advance to the Division Series, they would play Thursday and Friday, Oct. 7, 8 at Cincinnati, San Francisco or San Diego. They’d be off Saturday, Oct. 9, then host Game 3 at Turner Field on Sunday, Oct. 10. They would host a Game 4, if necessary, Monday Oct. 11 at Turner Field and then travel for Game 5, if necessary, on Wednesday Oct. 13.
