Preview Roundups
June 14, 2018
San Francisco at Miami 12:10 PM ET
The Miami Marlins are having their way with San Francisco and look to finish off a four-game sweep when they host the Giants on Thursday afternoon. The Marlins pushed across runs in the eighth and ninth innings to post a 5-4 victory on Wednesday and aim to match their season-high four-game winning streak with a triumph in the finale.
Colorado at Philadelphia 1:05 PM ET
Trevor Story has been enjoying a blistering June, which he's highlighted by recording multiple hits in each of his last five contests. Story aims to push his hitting streak to eight games on Thursday afternoon as the Colorado Rockies visit the Philadelphia Phillies for the rubber match of their three-game series.
Minnesota at Detroit 1:10 PM ET
The Detroit Tigers began the chore of moving on without Miguel Cabrera with a solid comeback win and look to follow it up when they conclude their three-game series with the visiting Minnesota Twins on Thursday afternoon. Detroit exploded for four eighth-inning runs in Wednesday's 5-2 victory, its first contest since losing Cabrera to a season-ending biceps injury a day earlier.
Cleveland at Chi. White Sox 2:10 PM ET
The Chicago White Sox attempt to win a four-game series against American League Central-leading Cleveland when they host the Indians on Thursday afternoon for the series finale. Chicago has won the last two contests after losing the series opener and is looking for its fourth victory in five games.
Houston at Oakland 3:35 PM ET
The Oakland Athletics hope to cool off the visiting Houston Astros and salvage the finale of their three-game series Thursday afternoon, but they'll need to slow down Evan Gattis in order to have a chance. Gattis has recorded three home runs and 10 RBIs in the first two games of the set after going deep twice in Wednesday's 13-5 victory.
Tampa Bay at NY Yankees 7:05 PM ET
The Tampa Bay Rays face quite the litmus test as they embark on a 16-game stretch in which they play only the New York Yankees, Houston and Washington. The Rays (32-35), who own a lackluster 11-26 mark against winning teams this season, open that imposing stretch on the road Thursday with the first of four games versus the New York Yankees (43-20).
San Diego at Atlanta 7:35 PM ET
Freddie Freeman looks to continue another offensive surge and help the Atlanta Braves increase their lead in the National League East when they host the improving San Diego Padres on Thursday to open a four-game set. Freeman is 13-for-27 during a seven-game hitting streak with five homers, including a solo blast in Wednesday’s 2-0 triumph against the visiting New York Mets.
NY Mets at Arizona 9:40 PM ET
The Arizona Diamondbacks were in their worst stretch of the season the last time they saw the New York Mets and the result was a three-game sweep that was part of a seven-game slide. The Diamondbacks are playing markedly better as they prepare for a rematch against the skidding Mets, who arrive in Arizona having lost 10 of 11 entering Thursday's opener of a four-game set.
Boston at Seattle 10:10 PM ET
David Price has not lost in over a month and looks to keep his hot streak going when the Boston Red Sox continue their 10-game road trip with the first of four at the Seattle Mariners on Thursday night. Price, who is 5-0 over his last six outings, will square off against former American League Cy Young Award winner Felix Hernandez in the series opener.
