5) Houston Astros @ Texas Rangers–AT&T/Bally Sports–8:05 pm ET
In this all-Texas rivalry, the Texas Rangers (+110) will be hosting the Houston Astros (-120). All of a sudden due to the slumping Los Angeles Angels, the Rangers (29-31) have moved into second place in the American League West. But they still trail the Astros (37-24) by seven and a half games.
4) Los Angeles Angels @ Los Angeles Dodgers–Bally Sports/SNLA–10:10 pm ET
In this interleague southern California battle, the Angels (29-33) play the Dodgers (37-23), who are now looking for ways to win without Walker Buehler. The All-Star right-hander is out six to eight weeks with an elbow strain. This is a great pitching matchup, as the Dodgers are going with Tony Gonsolin (7-0, 1.58 ERA) and the Angels are countering with Noah Syndergaard (4-4, 3.69 ERA). The Dodgers are tied for first place with the San Diego Padres in the NL West.
3) Minnesota Twins @ Seattle Mariners–Bally Sports/Root Sports–10:10 pm ET
The betting line is intriguing in this matchup because the Twins are the underdog (+107) against the Mariners (-117) even though Minnesota has the better record than Seattle, and the Twins have the slight advantage in starting pitching. The Twins (36-27) lead the Cleveland Guardians by three and a half games in the American League Central, while the Mariners (27-34) are 10 games back of the Houston Astros in the American League West. The Twins are starting Joe Ryan (5-2, 2.28 ERA), while the Mariners counter with Logan Gilbert (6-2, 2.41 ERA).
2) Tampa Bay Rays @ New York Yankees–Bally Sports/YES–7:05 pm ET
In this American League East contest, the Yankees (44-16) host the Rays (35-25). The Yankees (-205) continue to be the best team in baseball and are red hot as they are winners of nine of their last 10. The Rays (+188) start Corey Kluber (3-2, 3.88 ERA), while the Yankees counter with Gerrit Cole (5-1, 3.63 ERA).
1) Milwaukee Brewers @ New York Mets–Bally Sports/SNY–7:10 pm ET–
In this premier National League matchup, the National League East leading New York Mets (40-22) host the Milwaukee Brewers (34-28), who have fallen out of first place in the National League Central and are a game and a half back of the St. Louis Cardinals for the division lead.
