The weekend isn’t always the most motivating time of the week. Sometimes all you want to do, is unwind after a long week’s work and what better way to do that than to go see a baseball game. Grab a beverage, maybe a hot dog, enjoy the atmosphere, and watch two MLB teams slug it out in one of the last series before the All-Star break. Here is your guide to great, cheap baseball tickets this weekend:
The Philadelphia Phillies play host to the Washington Nationals this weekend in a battle of first and last place in the NL East. For the low, low price of $18 on Friday, $16 on Saturday, and $15 on Sunday, this weekend series promises to be an enjoyable one. Both Saturday, the 27th, and Sunday, the 28th, are scheduled as afternoon games, so if you are looking for something fun and cheap to do, then why not go see a division game in the city of brotherly love!
Head out to Citi Field this weekend to watch as the Mets try to get over a slump that has seen them score just 11 runs in their last 8 games. If you want to see some serious pitching, then this is definitely the series for you! Friday night’s game will set you back just $9 to see the pitching duel of Thor, also known as Noah Syndergaard for the Mets, against Johnny Cueto of the Reds. Saturday, an afternoon game, promises to be a special game as Matt Harvey looks to pick up his 8th win of the season, while the Mets’ newest addition, Steven Matz, makes his debut in the Orange and Blue on Sunday afternoon. So head on out to Citi Field for any of these three games and be prepared to see some great baseball.
This weekend, the Twins look to make up some ground on the first place Kansas City Royals, against the Milwaukee Brewers on their home turf (no, but literally, Miller Park is covered in turf, not natural grass). This series in Milwaukee is one of the cheapest tickets you can find with each game of the series, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday all starting at just $6! With both Saturday and Sunday’s games scheduled for 2:10pm ET start times, what better way to spend your weekend afternoon than enjoying America’s pastime while perhaps munching on some buttery popcorn.
Another division rivalry, this weekend will see the San Diego Padres play host to their neighbors just east, the Arizona Diamondbacks. This weekend’s series between the 3rd and 4th placeholders in the National League West promises to be an exciting one as both teams look to make up some ground in the race for 1st place. Currently sitting above them are both the San Francisco Giants and the Los Angeles Dodgers, but both teams are looking to gain some ground prior to the All-Star break. The weather promises to be nice all weekend in sunny San Diego, so why not get out to PETCO Park and see the Padres take on the Diamondbacks for as little as $14 on Saturday at 10:10pm ET and $18 on Sunday at 4:10pm ET.
You know what the Rangers and the Blue Jays have in common besides both dueling it out this weekend in Toronto? They both have records that are above .500, yet both sit in the middle of their divisions almost midway through the season. The Rangers look to stop their losing ways (they’ve lost 6 of their last 7), while the Blue Jays look to chase the Rays who sit in 1st place in the AL East but have a mere 2 game lead over them. Why not head over to the Rogers Centre for what promises to be an exciting weekend of baseball either, Saturday afternoon for as low as $16, or Sunday afternoon for as low as $15!
The Orioles look to continue a hot streak in the month of June, where they’ve won 15 of their past 20 games against a depleted Cleveland Indians team who have lost 12 of their last 21. For as little as $10 on Sunday, you can see these two teams battle it out in a nice Sunday matinee. Perhaps you fancy a night game; if so, Saturday night’s game between these two American League competitors will run you as little as $13. So why not head on over to Camden Yards, one of baseball’s most historic venues, to see the Baltimore Orioles take on the Cleveland Indians.
The Athletics are looking to turn things around as they take on the 1st place Royals on their home ground, the O.co Coliseum. Oakland is hoping that this series can be the start of a quick and easy turn around from 4th place in the AL West, to emulating their success from last season with a playoff berth come season’s end. The Royals will have their hands (or mitts) full with the Athletics, who are winners of six straight. Head on out to Oakland and see these two teams battle it out for as low as $17 on Saturday afternoon, or as little as $19 Sunday afternoon!
What better way to spend some time during your weekend in sunny Los Angeles than seeing the Angels take on division rival and last place, Seattle Mariners. The Angels are looking to make up some ground on 1st place Houston as they head into the All-Star break. With this weekend’s games costing as low as $7 for Saturday afternoon, and a remarkably low, $4 for Sunday afternoon’s game, there is certainly no better way to spend some time this weekend. Sunday afternoon’s game promises to be worth the time and low price, as the Mariners will send out Felix Hernandez, who will be looking to extend his lead in the American League wins category.
What better way to spend your weekend than to see two AL powers in action trying to extend their winning ways? The Yankees are looking to take all three games this weekend and take the series against a Houston Astros team that is stock full of excellent pitching. Head on out to Minute Maid Park Sunday for as low as $22 to see the Yankees’ Michael Pineda take on the Astros’ Collin McHugh, in what promises to be a battle between two, excellent starting pitchers.
Head on over to Comerica Park this weekend to see the Detroit Tigers take on their division rival Chicago White Sox. For as low as $25 on Friday and $20 on Sunday, this series promises to be a great one as the Detroit Tigers look to make some ground on the 1st place Kansas City Royals. Sunday’s afternoon game looks to not only be the most cost-effective game to attend, but also will feature two excellent starting pitchers for both the White Sox and the Tigers in, Jeff Samardzija and David Price, respectively.
