There is at least one early game on four of the five working days this week, starting on Monday with two games from the heart of the American League playoff race.
There is an England European Championship qualifier that evening too, of course, although that’s not likely to offer much competition for your attention based on recent form.
After a baseball-free early evening on Tuesday, there are a couple of games on Wednesday including the latest installment in the Braves-National rivalry with Stephen Strasburg currently on schedule to make the start for Washington.
There are four further day-games on Thursday before a bonus game on Friday as the Yankees and Orioles play the opener of a day-night double-header.
All times are in BST.
