Some of them are due to start before midnight, UK time, making them great evening viewing for us.
The working week starts with an early game of sorts. The Kansas City Royals trailed the Cleveland Indians 4-2 in the bottom of the tenth inning of their game on 31 August before rain caused the contest to be suspended.
With the AL Central being such a close battle, and the Indians themselves still being in the Wild Card running, the potential Cleveland win has been hanging over proceedings ever since. The remaining part of the game could be over in a matter of minutes, or a KC comeback could make it an exciting and important clash.
Wednesday provides four early games including two with playoff implications. The Detroit Tigers are at home against the White Sox, whilst the Oakland A’s host an LA Angels team that has already booked its postseason place.
On Thursday, the Brewers can’t really afford to lose as they take on the Reds, whilst the same arguably applies to the Mariners in their clash against the Blue Jays.
The weekend begins with Stephen Strasburg looking to head into the playoffs on a positive note with a strong showing at home against the Marlins.
