The Washington Nationals announced that individual tickets to a potential wild card game and National League division series games will go on sale beginning Friday morning at 10 a.m.

The Nationals could secure a playoff berth as soon as Wednesday if they take both games of the doubleheader against the Los Angeles Dodgers. If so, the Nationals will become the first baseball team in Washington to clinch a playoff berth since 1933. The Nationals have already claimed their first winning season since 1969. Since their return in 2005, the Nationals haven’t had a winning season nor qualified for the postseason.

The Nationals’ magic number to clinch the NL East title is 11, a combination of Washington wins and Atlanta Braves losses.

A maximum of four tickets for each game can be purchased online at or by calling the Nationals at 888-632-NATS. A limited number of standing room-only seats will be available the day of each postseason game.
