MLB this Week: Early games from Wednesday onwards

by Matt Smith

This week in MLB is slightly unusual as a number of teams are playing two-game Interleague series, under the new Interleague set-up.

The result is that there are only four games in total on Monday and neither that day or Tuesday offers any games starting before midnight U.K. time.

Things pick up on Wednesday and Thursday, though. Highlights include an R.A. Dickey start for the Blue Jays against the Rays, a Felix Hernandez start at SAFECO Field against the Pirates on Wednesday. Thursday games are highlighted by two excellent all-American League match-ups and a Stephen Strasburg home start for Washington against the Diamondbacks.

None of the early games are being shown live on ESPN America this week and there isn’t a game on BBC 5 Live Sports Extra, but starts by Felix Hernandez and Stephen Strasburg will be shown for free on MLB.com.

All times are in BST.
