MLB this Week: 11 Early games

by Matt Smith

CovMLBUK2014With all the home openers out of the way, week three in the 2014 MLB season provides a more normal number of ‘early’ games during the working week.

We draw a blank on pre-midnight starts on Monday and Tuesday, but there are plenty of games to choose from on the next two days and we then have the first of what will be a regular Friday evening visit to Wrigley Field this season.

David Price and Chris Tillman should match up on Wednesday as the Rays and Orioles battle at Camden Yards and there’s equal competition for your eyeballs from the National League with Francisco Liriano and Johnny Cueto set to duel in Cincinnati.

The highlight of the week – provided starting pitching assignments are not adjusted – should come on Thursday in a marquee match-up between Zack Greinke and Madison Bumgarner at AT&T Park. That game will be broadcast live on ESPN.

All times are in BST.
