- Detroit Tigers @ Boston Red Sox
Friday : Scherzer (5-1) vs. Lester (4-4) 7:10
Saturday: Porcello (6-0) vs. Lackey (5-2) 7:10
Sunday: Sanchez (0-2) vs. Peavy (1-1) 8:05
A rematch of last year’s ALCS should be an excellent series. Friday and Saturday will be excellent pitching match-ups as baseball’s best team challenges the defending World Series champions.
- Atlanta Braves @ St. Louis Cardinals
Friday: Santana (4-0) vs. Lynn (4-2) 8:15
Saturday: Harang (4-3) vs. Miller (5-2) 2:15
Sunday: Floyd (0-1) vs. Garcia (0-0) 2:15
These two teams should be competing for their division titles all season long and I expect both to be in the playoffs. St. Louis has yet to find their stride and Atlanta has been up and down all season. Look for a tough series with a lot of strikeouts.
- New York Mets @ Washington Nationals
Friday: Niese (2-2) vs. Roark (2-1) 7:05
Saturday: Colon (2-5) vs. TBD 4:05
Sunday: Wheeler (1-3) vs. TBD 1:35
Besides the Braves, everyone is hovering around the .500 mark in the N.L. East. The Mets have been one of the surprise teams and are coming off a split in the Subway Series. The Nationals are coming off a series win at Arizona and look to continue to win series.
