- A preview of the A’s-Tigers series which kicks off tonight at 6pm EST.
- A preview of Game 1 of that A’s-Tigers series, which, again starts tonight at 6pm EST.
- A preview of Game 1 of the Reds-Giants series, which follows tonight at 9:30pm EST.
- A preview of the Yankees-Orioles series which kicks off on Sunday at 6pm EST.
