MLB Network will be broadcasting three games on Friday, May 7 for out-of-market viewers. The schedule includes the Pittsburgh Pirates vs. the Chicago Cubs at 2:20 p.m. ET, the Washington Nationals vs. the New York Yankees at 7:05 p.m., and the Philadelphia Phillies vs. the Atlanta Braves at 7:20 p.m.

If you aren’t around a TV to check out this primetime MLB matchup, you can stream the game via, via the MLB app, and through MLB.TV. But keep in mind that you need a cable-login subscription for MLB Network or an MLB.TV subscription. If you don’t have a cable login to access MLB Network for a live stream, you can get a free trial from YouTube TV, Hulu with Live TV, AT&T TV Now, FuboTV, or Sling TV to stream the games.

Pirates-Cubs will actually be MLB.TV’s free game of the day. So, if you’ve been meaning to give it a try, you can get in a little afternoon baseball.

Trevor Cahill and Zach Davies will start for Pittsburgh and Chicago, respectively. The Cubs are a -148 favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook while the Pirates are a +125 underdog. The two teams have split their first six matchups this season.

Local viewers can catch the game on MASN 2 in the DC market and YES in the New York market. Patrick Corbin and Jameson Taillon will start for Washington and New York, respectively. The Yankees are a -186 favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook while the Nationals are a +155 underdog.
