Twitter releases MLB streaming schedule

With Twitter striking out on streaming NFL football, it’s now shifting its focus back to baseball.

The social network on Wednesday released its schedule of live-streaming Major League Baseball games in April. The action starts this Friday as the defending World Series champion Chicago Cubs take on the Milwaukee Brewers.

The weekly streams are part of a deal Twitter struck with MLB Advanced Media, baseball’s interactive arm, last season.

The free Friday night games will be available globally on mlb.twitter.com and at MLB’s Twitter page. The streams are a simulcast of the home team’s televised broadcast.

Here’s the list of games:

April 7 — Chicago Cubs at Milwaukee Brewers, 8:10 p.m. ET

April 14 –New York Mets at Miami Marlins, 7:10 p.m. ET

April 21 — Boston Red Sox at Baltimore Orioles, 7:05 p.m. ET

April 28 — Cincinnati Reds at St. Louis Cardinals, 8:15 p.m. ET
