MLB Opening Day 2020 live scores, updates, highlights from Friday's baseball games 1

Baseball, baseball, baseball.

While the MLB season officially got underway Thursday, a nearly full slate of games comes your way Friday, with baseball being played deep into the night. It’s Opening Day for 26 teams, starting with an NL East matchup at 4:10 p.m. ET with Jacob deGrom taking on Mike Soroka and the World Series-hopeful Braves in New York. 

Closing out the night is a must-watch matchup between the scrappy Athletics and a sneaky-underrated Angels squad, featuring the planet’s greatest player, Mike Trout.

Thursday’s games had a little bit of everything that makes baseball great: slick defending, great pitching, dingers, starpower and more. With 13 games on today’s schedule, expect to see more of that.
