Plenty of MLB action on Foxtel this week so lets take a look at what is in storeCincinnati Reds v Los Angeles Dodgers Time& Date: Monday 9nd September from Great American Ball Park Coverage: Live on ESPN and ESPN HD at 10:00am AEST (see TV Guide for other games and times) Projected Starting Pitchers: Homer Bailey (CIN) & Clayton Kershaw (LAD) The Cincinnati Reds will try to complete a sweep of their rivals, the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Dodgers have lost three straight for the first time in three months and will be giving it their all to avoid a 4-game losing streak. The Reds are right in the thick of the NL Central divisional race, only 1.5 games back of the St Louis Cardinals. The Dodgers have the NL West under control and are fighting for the best record in the NL. They currently stand two games behind the Atlanta Braves. Watch For: Billy Hamilton The Reds youngster stole a record 155 bases in the minor leagues last season. In the Reds’ last five games, Hamilton has pinch-run four times. Each of those four times, he has successfully stolen second base, and on three of those occasions, he then scored. “I didn’t send him out there to paint,” said Reds manager Dusty Baker after Hamilton’s debut. So watch for Hamilton to pinch-run late in this game if the result is in the balance. Texas Rangers v Pittsburgh Pirates Time & Date: Tuesday 10th September from Rangers Ballpark in Arlington Coverage: Live on Fox Sports 2 & Fox Sports 2 HD 10:00 am AEST (see TV Guide for other games and times) Projected Starting Pitchers: Yu Darvish (TEX) & Gerrit Cole (PIT) The Pirates have clinched their first non-losing season for the first time in 20 years. Currently sitting on 81 wins, this could be the game which secures them a winning season. Both the Pirates and Rangers are in similar positions in their respective divisional races, with the Rangers 1.5 games behind the A’s and the Pirates half a game back against the Cardinals. With MLB’s new playoff system in place, winning the division is paramount, so expect both teams to be giving their all as every game is critical this late in the season. Watch For: Yu Darvish. If you have not had the pleasure of watching Darvish throw a baseball, make sure you tune in. Darvish is having a Cy Young-calibre season, and while he was shaky in his last start, the man leading the majors in strikeouts will be looking to bounce back in a big way against the Pirates. Los Angeles Dodgers v Arizona Diamondbacks Time & Date: Wednesday 11th September from Dodger Stadium Coverage: Live on Fox Sports 2 & Fox Sports 2 HD at 12:00 pm AEST (see TV Guide for other games and times) Projected Starting Pitchers: Edinson Volquez (LAD) & Trevor Cahill (ARI) Here we see a battle between the best two teams in the NL West. The Dodgers lead the division by 11 games, while the Diamondbacks find themselves eight games out of the wildcard race. The Dodgers are coming off a tough series in Cincinnati and will be looking to consolidate against the Diamondbacks in order to stay in the race for the best record in the NL. Watch For: Yasiel Puig. At 22 years old, Puig has lit up the baseball world since his call-up to the majors. Puig has 14 home runs and 56 runs scored through 82 games and is arguably the favourite for the NL Rookie of the Year award. Baltimore Orioles v New York Yankees Time & Date: Thursday 12th September from Camden Yards Coverage: Live on Fox Sports 2 & Fox Sports 2 HD at 9:00am AEST (see TV Guide for other games and times) Projected Starting Pitchers: Scott Feldman (BAL) & Andy Pettitte (NYY) Two AL East rivals go head to head in this match. Both the Orioles and Yankees are fighting for a wildcard spot. The O’s are one game behind Tampa Bay in the wildcard race, while the Yankees are 2.5 games behind. These divisional games are especially crucial come the business end of the season as each win seemingly has twice the impact as games early on. Watch For: Chris Davis. Looking for a power hitter? Say hello to Chris Davis. The Orioles’ star leads the majors in home runs, with 48 for the season. Tampa Bay Rays v Boston Red Sox Time & Date: Thursday 12th September from Tropicana Field Coverage: Live on EPSN & ESPN HD at 9:00am AEST (see TV Guide for other games and times) Projected Starting Pitchers: Alex Cobb (TAM) & Jake Peavy (BOS) Here we see the top two teams in the ultra-competitive AL East go head to head. The Red Sox currently lead the division by 8.5 games over the Rays. The Red Sox will be looking to further enhance their prospects of claiming the best record in the AL East and the entire AL, while the Rays will be battling to keep ahead of Baltimore , New York, Kansas City and Cleveland in the wildcard race. Watch For: The Red Sox offense. Heading into this week, the Red Sox have scored 54 runs in their past four games. That is huge. Throw in 17 homers and 64 hits, and the Boston bats have been keeping everyone entertained. Los Angeles Dodgers v Arizona Diamondbacks Time & Date: Thursday 12th September from Dodger Stadium Coverage: Live on ESPN & ESPN HD at 12:00 pm AEST (see TV Guide for other games and times) Projected Starting Pitchers: Hyun-Jin Ryu (LAD) & Patrick Corbin (ARI) Much the same story line as Wednesday’s game, but this time the pitching duel is dynamite. Both of the starting pitchers have 13 wins on the season both are in the top 20 in the majors for ERA. Watch For: Patrick Corbin. The 24-year-old has been a bright spark for Arizona this season. With an ERA of 2.97 and a record of 13-6, Corbin is in contention for the Cy Young in the NL. Take this opportunity to have a look at this future superstar before the Diamondbacks shut him down for the season in the near future. Tampa Bay Rays v Boston Red Sox Time & Date: Friday 13th September from Tropicana Field Coverage: Live on Fox Sports 2 & Fox Sports 2 HD at 9:00am AEST (see TV Guide for other games and times) Projected Starting Pitchers: Jeremy Hellickson (TAM) & Felix Doubront (BOS) Continuation of the same series as Thursday’s game. Watch For: Will Middlebrooks. The young third baseman for Boston has been a revelation batting in the nine spot. With an average of .350 since the All-Star break, Middlebrooks seems to have leapt at the chance to find himself back in the line-up.
