MLB This Week: Good match-ups in prospect

by Matt Smith

It’s a slow start to the UK-evening viewing this working week, but the early MLB games pick up from there with some good match-ups among them.

Wednesday’s games include one from the important Astros-Mariners series, whilst the Brewers are at home against the Reds and the A’s are hosting the Rangers.

On Thursday there are three potentially exciting match-ups starting with Indians-Red Sox as a play-off preview.  The other two stand-outs depend on how the probable pitching schedules actually work out, but currently we’re due to have Aaron Nola and Max Scherzer squaring off in Washington, and Madison Bumgarner and Jacob deGrom going in New York.

We then end the working week, and start the Bank Holiday weekend, with an early game from Wrigley Field between the Cubs and Reds.

All times are in BST.
