In addition to some key interdivisional matchups, we have the usual Fox-TV Saturday, which winds up preventing some people from watching the game they want. But don't let that stop you from continuing to keep baseball TV in the 1970s, Bud. All times Eastern.â†µâ†µ
1 p.m., CSN California, NESN: Athletics at Red Sox. If you need an early afternoon baseball fix, this is the only game that starts before the Fox exclusive late-afternoon window. Trevor Cahill faces Josh Beckett.
4 p.m., Fox-TV: Cubs at Cardinals, Rockies at Giants, or Reds at Dodgers. The Cubs/Cardinals game will be seen just about everywhere east of Denver (except in Reds home territory). The Rockies/Giants game will be seen just about everywhere west of Denver (except in Dodgers home territory). You can find the game in your market here.â†µâ†µ
7 p.m., WGN, FSN Detroit: Tigers at White Sox. Just as they did around this time last year, the White Sox are making a midseason run; they've won four straight. Tonight may be tougher, as they'll face Justin Verlander. Edwin Jackson goes for the Sox.â†µâ†µ
