MLB This Week: Two BT Sport Games on Thursday

After drawing blanks on Monday and Tuesday, we’ve got a good selection of MLB day-games to enjoy during the British evening on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

Wednesday’s games include one from the series between the current leaders of the NL Central and NL West, as the Arizona Diamondbacks are in Miwaukee playing the Brewers.

The Houston Astros are in interleague play against the San Francisco Giants and Wednesday’s game should see an excellent pitching match-up with Jeff Samardzija and Justin Verlander the probable pitchers.

There are two games on BT Sport on Thursday, as the Pirates and Reds get things going from 17.35 on the ESPN channel before the Mariners and A’s start on BT Sport1 from 20.35.

Friday offers us a Cubs home game and the second opportunity to catch the Giants in early action.

All times are in BST.
