MLB This Week: Play-off contenders on show

by Matt Smith

We’ve got early MLB games to watch live during the British evening on four days out of five this working week.

It starts with two games from the latest Windy City series, with the Cubs hosting the White Sox. Both games are on BT Sport/ESPN and Monday’s contest is also available for all to watch free online at MLB.com.

Wednesday’s batch of games includes a number of teams in the hunt for a play-off spot.

The Pittsburgh Pirates have played extremely well of late to get themselves back into the NL Central race and they will be looking to build on that against a Giants team that is a long way out.

Meanwhile Chris Sale is scheduled to take the mound at Safeco Field for the Red Sox against the Mariners, being shown in the UK on BT Sport1.

Thursday’s games include the finale of a three-game series between the Brewers and Nationals (BT Sport/ESPN) as Milwaukee try to get themselves back on track after a difficult spell coming out of the All-Star break.

The MLB.com Free Game is an early game between the A’s and Blue Jays and currently is scheduled to be a good pitching match-up featuring Sean Manaea and Marcus Stroman.

All times are in BST.
