MLB Network announces June 2013 Live Games TV schedule

MLB Network has released the June 2013 schedule.

Here is the release and schedule of games from MLB Network. As a little FYI, when the games are listed at the bottom of the page, the featured game is the 1st one listed while the alternate game follows the slash.
