There’s still plenty to be played for, even for teams that are out of the running for a play-off place.
Rhys Hoskins’ home-run exploits for the Phillies are a great example and we can watch Philadelphia take on the Braves for free in the MLB.com Free Game on Wednesday from 18.05 BST.
Other pre-midnight BST games that catch the eye are early contests between the Indians and Yankees, Cardinals and Brewers, Mariners and Orioles, Marlins and Nationals (all on Wednesday) and the Dodgers and D-Backs (Thursday).
Friday is a rarity with two early games on offer. We quite regularly get to enjoy a game from Wrigley Field to start the weekend, and the Cubs host the Braves on BT Sport/ESPN this week, but we also get a Cleveland-Detroit early game too as part of a Friday double-header for those clubs.
All times are in BST.
