Atlanta at Philadelphia 7:05 PM ET

The Philadelphia Phillies host the Atlanta Braves for Wednesday’s third matchup of a four-game series, and hope the power from Tuesday’s 6-5 victory will show up again to help keep their flickering National League playoff hopes alive.

Milwaukee at Miami 7:10 PM ET
The Milwaukee Brewers were dealt a crushing blow in their bid for a return to the playoffs after learning that reigning National League MVP Christian Yelich sustained a fractured right kneecap on Tuesday.

Washington at Minnesota 7:40 PM ET
The Washington Nationals are suddenly sputtering while trying to pull away in the National League wild-card race and look to start moving in a positive direction when they visit the Minnesota Twins for the middle contest of their three-game interleague series on Wednesday.

Cleveland at LA Angels 8:07 PM ET
The Los Angeles Angels hope to have superstar Mike Trout back in the lineup Wednesday for the finale of their three-game series against the visiting Cleveland Indians.

St. Louis at Colorado 8:40 PM ET
