This week’s early MLB games: Gallardo-Wainwright and three from Wrigley

by Matt Smith

We’ve got eight early games this working week that begin before midnight UK time.

Wednesday’s encounter between the Brewers and Cardinals catches the eye thanks to the excellent pitching match-up in prospect.  The Rangers-Rays game that day should be fascinating as well.

Mat Latos looked very impressive on Saturday against the Giants despite finishing up with a ‘no decision’.  The young Padres starter has a great fastball and a devastating breaking ball and the Cubs will be in for a battle against him at Wrigley on Thursday.  That will be the second straight Padres-Cubs game played at a convenient time for us Brits and Chicago will be hosting another day game on Friday as the Braves head into town.

All times are in BST. (Note: updated on 18 August)
