Whilst there are a number of good pitchers on show, it’s the Dodgers-Tigers Interleague match-up on Wednesday that really catches the eye.
Provided that there are no rain-outs, injuries or other events that change the two teams’ pitching schedules, Zack Greinke and Max Scherzer should be on the mound for a potential classic pitching duel.
As it starts at just gone six o’clock British time, it should fall neatly in line with the 21.00 kick off for the Argentina v Netherlands World Cup semi-final too.
What more could you want from a Wednesday evening?!
