A’s @ Yankees on September 16 at 1 p.m. ET
The pennant race heats up on “Sunday MLB on TBS” on September 23 at 1 p.m. ET with a matchup of postseason contenders featuring Yoenis Cespedes and the Athletics visiting Derek Jeter and the Yankees. A.J. Griffin (6-1) is scheduled to start for the A’s against Yankees’ probable starter Hiroki Kuroda (14-10). Going into the weekend series, both teams are competing for their respective divisions and wild card berths. 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.
