As pennant race heats up, more A’s games will be on TV

The A’s finally are receiving national recognition befitting the team with the best record in baseball – and that means fans will be able to watch more of their games during the pennant race.

As A’s fans know, most day games during the week aren’t on TV, including today’s 12:35 p.m. game against Tampa Bay.

But after ESPN decided last week to feature the A’s on “Sunday Night Baseball” on Aug. 17 and Aug. 24, Comcast Sports Net California announced today that it has added day games against the Mariners on Wednesday, Sept. 3, and the Rangers on Thursday, Sept. 18.

With those additions, plus MLB Network’s addition of the Aug. 17 game against the Royals, only one of the A’s final 49 games isn’t scheduled to be on TV – Sept. 11 against the White Sox.
