The NHL made its catalog of games from the 2019-20 season available on-demand on Friday to help fans who were stir crazy during the coronavirus pandemic. Unfortunately, the 2017-18 season was not included meaning we couldn’t re-watch the Capitals’ Stanley Cup run on NHL.TV.
But there is one local championship run you can most definitely watch now! Saturday, the MLB made its last two years of games available to watch for free on MLB.TV. That’s 4,800 games and the playoffs available to stream for free!
“Relive unforgettable 2019 moments like the Nationals winning their first World Series title and Justin Verlander throwing his third career no-hitter,” the MLB wrote on their website. “Or go back to 2018 and rewatch each of the Red Sox’s franchise-record 108 wins and National League MVP Award winner Christian Yelich’s 36 home runs. And, of course, be sure to get your fill of Mike Trout highlights while you’re at it.”
To do so, visit MLB.TV.
The MLB has also made five Nationals games and five Orioles games available to watch on YouTube, including Cal Ripken Jr.’s 2131st game.
A memorable season finale (Sept. 28, 2014): On the final day of the regular season, Jordan Zimmermann throws a no-hitter against the Marlins, with left fielder Steven Souza making an acrobatic catch for the game’s dramatic final out on a line drive off the bat of Christian Yelich.
Max is almost perfect (June 20, 2015): Max Scherzer retires the first 26 Pirates he faced before hitting Jose Tabata with two strikes and two outs in the ninth. But he still completed the no-hitter a batter later.
Scherzer’s second no-hitter (Oct. 3, 2015): In the second game of a doubleheader on a brisk day and night in Flushing, Max Scherzer tosses his second no-hitter of the 2015 season, striking out 17 Mets batters and allowing just one baserunner, on an error.
20 K’s for Scherzer (May 11, 2016): Max Scherzer becomes just the fifth pitcher to strike out 20 batters in a nine-inning game.
Rendon makes history (April 30, 2017): Anthony Rendon goes 6-for-6 with three home runs and 10 RBIs against the Mets, becoming just the second player in history to have a game that included six hits, three home runs and 10 RBIs.
Cal Ripken Jr., Iron Man (Sept. 6, 1995): Ripken breaks “Iron Horse” Lou Gehrig’s streak by playing his 2,131st straight game and puts an exclamation point on history by homering.
Inaugural Wild Card winners (Oct. 7, 2012, AL Wild Card Game): In the first year of the new Wild Card Game format, the Orioles go to Texas and beat Yu Darvish and the Rangers.
Nailbiter in the Bronx (Oct. 11, 2012, ALDS Game 4): Facing elimination at Yankee Stadium, the Orioles prevail 2-1 in 13 innings on J.J. Hardy’s tiebreaking double.
Cruz kick-starts ALDS sweep (Oct. 2, 2014, ALDS Game 1): With the O’s up against a Cy Young-winning Tigers rotation of Max Scherzer, Justin Verlander and David Price, Nelson Cruz homers off Scherzer in the first inning of Game 1 and Baltimore never looks back.
2014 AL East clincher (Sept. 16, 2014): The Orioles clinch their first division title since 1997 and the ninth in team history.
