MLB This Week: Two weeks to go

by Matt Smith

There are only two weeks of the MLB regular season left to play, which is a shame both due to the season soon coming to an end and the fact that this time of year always results in more games being played at night.

Consequently the early game line-up for this working week only offers Wednesday and Thursday as evenings to watch live baseball at a convenient time for us in the UK.

There are some good games among them though.

The Minnesota Twins and New York Yankees currently hold the two AL Wild Card spots and they meet in the Bronx for a three-game series, with the finale on Wedneday being an early start.

The LA Angels are the closest challengers to the Twins and they have a tough home series against the Cleveland Indians over the first part of this week. The game on Thursday is a 21.07 start.

All times are in BST.

Hey Matt I am a big Dbacks fan having lived in Arizona for five years …I try to watch when they come on BT Sport but what I really want to find out is they look nailed on for home field wild card against the Rockies or Brewers .Do you know if BT sport will show the one game play off on Ictober 4th I think?

Hi Peter – they’ve showed the two Wild Card games in recent years, so I’d be very surprised if they are not covered live again this year. Can’t see their schedule for that date as yet to definitively confirm, but you should be good to cheer them on!
