Washington Nationals at Kansas City Royals
The Royals are coming back to Kansas City after a rough road trip that saw them go 1-5. This is for game three of the Nationals series, so the Royals will either be any combination of 0-2, 1-1 or 2-0 against them. After losing game one, they are looking to win in game two and have game three be the game that takes the series. The Royals do not have the best pitching matchup with Stephen Strasburg going for Washington and Kris Medlan going for Kansas City. Medlan, however, did throw 5 1/3 of one-hit baseball, but the one hit was a homer and the Royals lost that start 1-0.
First pitch for this game will be 1:15 p.m. Wednesday on Fox Sports Kansas City.
San Antonio Spurs at Oklahoma City Thunder
The Spurs and Thunder have the unfortunate luck of meeting in the playoffs before the Conference Finals. These are probably the second and fourth best teams in the league. The Spurs took game one in dominating fashion. The Thunder are looking to take advantage of being back home while the Spurs are looking to finish the series as soon as possible with an old group of core players and the Warriors looming in the Conference Finals.
Tipoff for game three is set for 8:30 p.m. Friday on ESPN.
Manchester City at Real Madrid
After the first leg of this matchup we have a 0-0 score on aggregate. Madrid was without star player Cristiano Ronaldo for that match. Striker Karim Benzema came off with a knock during the game, sending the Los Blancos into defensive mode for the rest of the game. Manchester City has its hands full as the team heads to Spain for the second leg of the matchup.
Kickoff for leg two is set for 1:45 p.m. Wednesday on Fox Sports 1.
Dallas Stars at St. Louis Blues
The Blues and Stars have split the first two games of the series in Dallas. The Blues are now back home with home-ice advantage. With a couple of victories in St. Louis, the Blues would need to go to Dallas only once more to clinch the series. The Stars are looking to take both games in St. Louis and and not have to travel back home to clinch the series. I have a feeling this will be a seven-game series with both teams being good enough to advance.
Game three starts at 8:30 p.m. today on NBC Sports Network.
