Last weekend we saw a no-hitter and this weekend will feature several double headers to make up for all the bad weather in the early part of the season. This week, there are several potential playoff matchups and here are four series that you won’t want to miss.
New York Yankees vs. Los Angeles Angels
This series could be a potential playoff matchup. The Bronx Bombers head out west to face Mike Trout and the Angles. Both teams are very hot right now and are looking to take control of their respective divisions.
Rookie phenom Shohei Ohtani will be available to play and will most likely bat in the clean-up spot. MLB home run leader Trout will be looking to add to his tally in this weekend series.
Giancarlo Stanton is trying to get back on track while Didi Gregorius is swinging an extremely hot bat.
There will certainly be a lot of star power in the series this weekend. The first game is scheduled for 9:07 p.m. Friday in Anaheim, California.
Milwaukee Brewers vs. Chicago Cubs
The Brewers travel to the friendly confines for a four-game set with the Cubs and both teams are looking to catch the St. Louis Cardinals in the NL Central.
This series is going to be very entertaining to watch as the Cubs ace Yu Darvish is a probable starter.
Both teams will be coming off of dominant performances facing AL Central opponents and each game in this series will be close. The first game is set for 7:05 p.m. Thursday in Chicago.
Atlanta Braves vs. Philadelphia Phillies
One of the top prospects in the MLB, Ronald Acuña Jr., will be playing in this his first full series in the majors this weekend and he will be looking to improve the explosive Braves offense. It will be interesting to see what he can do as he is a five-tool outfielder and had an impressive spring training.
The first pitch of the series is set for 6:05 p.m. Friday in Philadelphia.
Arizona Diamondbacks vs. Washington Nationals
The Diamondbacks have only lost one a series this season and they will want to continue that success this weekend in a series against Bryce Harper and the Nationals.
The Diamondbacks will aim to take more control of the NL West while the Nationals will try to keep pace with the rest of the NL East.
The first game will begin at 6:05 p.m. Friday in Washington, D.C.
