Boston Red Sox (59-29) at Kansas City Royals (25-61)
There’s value all over the place in this AL series, seeing as how the elite Red Sox are almost surely going to sweep the lowly Royals in their three-game set beginning on Friday night. Staff ace Chris Sale (8-4, 2.41 ERA) is on the mound on Friday night, followed by David Price (9-6, 4.82 ERA) and then Rick Porcello (10-3, 3.57 ERA).
Atlanta Braves (49-37) at Milwaukee Brewers (52-35)
The Braves are in first place in the NL East but just one game ahead of equally surprising Philadelphia heading into the weekend. The Brewers occupy the top spot in the NL Central but are just 1.5 games up on the Chicago Cubs. These longtime NL rivals will square off in a three-game set starting on Friday night in what looks like an exciting series just waiting to happen.
Oakland A’s (28-39) at Cleveland Indians (48-37)
The A’s might be in third place in the AL West, but that’s only because the defending champion Houston Astros (58-31) and second place Seattle Mariners (56-32) have been among the best teams in baseball this season. Cleveland is sitting 11.5 games up in the awful AL central with Minnesota (36-48) a whopping 12 games under .500. However, if the A’s were in the AL Central, they’d be right on the Tribe’s tail, so this weekend series should be highly competitive between two evenly matched teams.
Los Angeles Dodgers (47-39) at Los Angeles Angels (44-44)
The Dodgers have been one of the hottest teams in all of baseball for the better part of the last six weeks, thanks first and foremost to Matt Kemp’s MVP-caliber play. The Halos have struggled mightily since their red-hot start this season and have dropped seven of 10 heading into their three-game Interleague series starting on Friday night.
