Thursday provides the most eye-catching games. There’s the fourth game of a big series between the Dodgers and Braves, a Max Scherzer start for the Detroit Tigers against the Pirates in Interleague play, and an exciting match-up in prospect from Kansas City where the A’s are scheduled to send Jeff Samardzija to the mound against James Shields.
Earlier in the week, the Mets and Phillies end their latest series with an early start on Monday, and there are four games on Monday including the Boston Red Sox playing an Intlereague encounter against the Cincinnati Reds at the Great American Ballpark.
