Home MLBBST Game Guides MLB This Week

MLB This Week

by Matt Smith

It’s another good week for watching MLB at a convenient time in the UK.

We’ve got day-games every day this working week.

The Rays-White Sox series will be a good example that even if the teams involved in a game aren’t likely play-off contenders, there will be some good players on show to enjoy, not least Chris Archer taking the mound on Monday.

The Chicago Cubs have three day-games, with two against the Pirates and then a traditional Friday day-game at Wrigley. The latter is the start of a series against the Atlanta Braves and, on the current schedule, will see Yu Darvish starting for the Cubs; however that does come on Friday 13th, so look out for strange goings on there.

All four games from the Tigers-Indians series are pre-midnight starts, although they only dip into that bracket by a bit less than an hour.

It’s worth noting after last week that the Brewers-Cardinals game on Wednesday is only available online via Facebook, albeit that it’s available for free to anyone that has a Facebook account. If you’re not on Facebook, you do at least have the chance to watch it live in the UK on BT Sport.

All times are listed in BST.
