MLB This Week: Play-off races

by Matt Smith

CovMLBUK2014We start off slowly when it comes to early MLB games this working week, but once they get going we will be treated to some big games involving a number of teams chasing play-off spots.

Wednesday’s batch of pre-midnight BST starts are so good you should make sure you clear the evening so that you can catch as much of the action as possible.

We’ve got the top two teams from both the NL Central (Cubs-Cardinals) and East (Mets-Nationals) matching up, Marcus Stroman pitching for the Blue Jays against the Rays, Madison Bumgarner taking the mound for the Giants against the Padres and a rare LA Dodgers visit to Yankee Stadium in which Clayton Kershaw is scheduled to face the Yankees.

Thursday takes us into the AL Central. The Detroit Tigers are trying to chase down the Cleveland Indians and both will be looking to take wins against other division teams, Detroit against the Twins and Cleveland against the White Sox.

Then on Friday we have a Cubs day-game from Wrigley, this one against the Milwaukee Brewers.

All times are in BST.
