“Sunday MLB on TBS” heads to Detroit on August 26 at 1 p.m. ET for a match-up of American League contenders featuring rookie phenom Mike Trout and the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim visiting Miguel Cabrera and the Tigers at Comerica Park. Max Scherzer (13-6) is scheduled to start for the Tigers against Angels’ probable starter Ervin Santana (7-10). Calling the action will be Ernie Johnson (play-by-play), Ron Darling and John Smoltz (analysts).
In October, TBS will exclusively televise the American League (AL) and National League (NL) Wild Card games and will once again provide coverage of all four MLB Division Series (DS) and exclusive coverage of the American League Championship Series (ALCS). TBS has broadcast MLB games for more than 30 years, including the MLB Division Series (DS) and one League Championship Series (LCS) since 2007, and was the home of Atlanta Braves coverage from 1977 to 2007.
The network will announce future games on its schedule coinciding with its selection windows. The games included in the TBS MLB package will not be televised in the team’s home television territory.
