Tonight will be Derek Jeter's first real shot at getting his 3000th hit in front of his home fans at Yankee Stadium; he's three hits short of the milestone. Naturally, there's national TV coverage. All times Eastern.â†µâ†µ
7 p.m., MLB Network, YES Network, Sun Sports: Rays at Yankees. In addition to the Derek Jeter countdown, this series is critical for the Rays, who trail the Yankees by four games and the Red Sox by 3.5.â†µâ†µ
7 p.m., WGN, MASN2: Cubs at Nationals. The Nats have not swept a four-game series since they swept the Braves in Atlanta in the last four games of the 2009 season, and not at home since they were the Montreal Expos, against the Mets in April 2003. But that's just what they can accomplish tonight.â†µâ†µ
8 p.m., CSN Chicago, FSN North: Twins at White Sox. The Twins are 29-11 against the White Sox since the start of the 2009 season. If they are going to make their move toward the top of the AL Central, now would seem to be the time.
