The games include all three from the series at Wrigley Field between the Padres and Cubs, two teams that will hope a run of day games can bring some better form than they have displayed of late.
Once again, there are no early games on Thursday. In fact there are only three games being played at all in MLB that day, predominantly due to three-game series starting on Memorial Day Monday instead of Tuesday as would more often be the case.
All times are in BST.
