Preview Roundups
June 24, 2019
Toronto at NY Yankees 7:05 PM ET
The New York Yankees look to follow up setting a franchise record for consecutive contests with a homer by matching the major-league mark on Monday when they open a three-game series against the visiting Toronto Blue Jays. DJ LeMahieu launched a three-run shot in the fifth inning in Sunday's 9-4 setback to Houston, moving the Yankees to within one of the league record set by Texas in 2002.
NY Mets at Philadelphia 7:05 PM ET
Pete Alonso set a record for homers by a National League rookie prior to the All-Star break on Saturday before continuing his power display the following day, establishing a franchise mark for the most by a first-year player in the entire season. Alonso aims to continue his torrid streak on Monday when the visiting New York Mets open a four-game series against the free-falling Philadelphia Phillies.
Chi. White Sox at Boston 7:10 PM ET
The Boston Red Sox just suffered through a terrible weekend in their return home, failing to take advantage of a team below them in the standings while falling below .500 at Fenway Park. The defending champions will get another shot to win a series at home when they host the Chicago White Sox in the opener of a three-game series on Monday.
Kansas City at Cleveland 7:10 PM ET
The Cleveland Indians are trying to slowly cut into a big deficit in the American League Central and are playing some of their best baseball with wins in three straight and eight of the last 10 games. The Indians will try to stay hot when they host the Kansas City Royals on Monday in the opener of a three-game series.
Atlanta at Chi. Cubs 8:05 PM ET
It hasn’t been smooth at times, but the Atlanta Braves' bullpen continues pitching just well enough to help the team extend its National League East lead entering the opener of a four-game series Monday at the Chicago Cubs. The Braves pushed their division lead over Philadelphia to 6 1/2 games with Sunday’s 4-3, 10-inning victory at Washington - in which Atlanta’s bullpen covered eight innings as Josh Tomlin pitched four scoreless frames and Luke Jackson earned the save.
LA Dodgers at Arizona 9:40 PM ET
Despite winning the National League West in each of the previous six seasons and making the World Series in each of the last two, the Los Angeles Dodgers cleared some room on the roster with one eye on lowering the payroll and another on ushering in the future. The Dodgers' rookies made their presence felt time and again in their last series and attempt to carry it over into the next one beginning Monday when they begin a three-game set versus the host Arizona Diamondbacks.
Colorado at San Francisco 10:05 PM ET
The Colorado Rockies look to rebound after a rough weekend in Los Angeles when they continue their three-city road trip against National League West rivals with the first of three contests against the San Francisco Giants on Monday night. The Rockies swept three games at Arizona to begin the trek before coming up empty in three straight against the Dodgers, who earned walk-off victories in all of them.
