TBS continues its annual Sunday MLB on TBS broadcast schedule this Sunday live from New York with a cross-conference showdown between the Giants and the Yankees.

Sunday’s game is the closer in the teams’ three-game weekend series.  It opens the day’s MLB action, too with first pitch expected for 1:05pm ET.  Nathan Eovaldi (8 – 6) is currently expected to get the start for the Yankees.  He hasn’t had much time to rest up for Sunday’s game.  That is because he last got some time on the mound this past Wednesday, July 19th when the Yankees took on the Orioles.  He was credited with the win in the game as New York blasted Baltimore 7 – 1.  Eovaldi pitched 5.1 innings in the game, keeping Baltimore’s bats largely silent along the way.  He allowed only 1 run (the Orioles’ only run in the game) in 4 hits over that time, along with 1 earned run, 2 walks, and 0 home runs.  He had 1 strike out, too.  Team mates Anthony Swarzak and Nick Goody finished off the Orioles, with a total of five strike outs, allowing not a single run or hit through the remainder of the game and not even a single home run, walk, or earned run.

Johnny Cueto (13 – 2) is expected to get the start for the Giants in Sunday’s game.  Cueto will come in to Sunday’s game with a little bit more rest than Eovaldi.  His last time on the mound was last Sunday, July 17th against the Padres.  The Giants lost that game 5 – 3 with Cueto taking the loss.  He allowed 4 runs on 6 hits over 5 innings, along wit h2 home runs and 4 earned runs.  He allowed 3 walks along the way, too and had 4 strike outs.  While Giants lost to the Padres in the game, the rest of San Francisco’s bullpen picked up the slack, allowing only 1 more run in 4 hits, which was a home run.  That home run came during Hunter Strickland’s time on the mound.

Looking at these numbers and the teams’ overall numbers, the Yankees cannot be counted out for this game or for any of the games in the teams’ weekend series.  New York is fourth in the AL East, seven games back from the division-leading Boston Red Sox.  The team is 6 – 4 in its last ten games and is 27 – 21 so far on the season at home with just its last game being in the “L” column.  San Francisco on the other hand is in the midst of a five-game losing streak as it comes in to New York for the weekend series.  The Giants are 28 – 21 on the road so far this season.  But are 4 – 6 in their last ten games.  So the numbers give the Yankees a fighting chance not just in Sunday’s game but in the series in whole.

Don Orsillo will have the call for Sunday afternoon’s series ender between the Giants an Yankees.  He will be joined in the booth by Ron Darling for additional commentary.  Sunday’s game will be available locally in the New York market.

ESPN Presents MLB Double-Header In Today’s WNB Broadcast

Courtesy:  ESPN

Courtesy: ESPN

ESPN has a very special edition of its Wednesday Night Baseball presented by Hankook Tire today.

Today on the network’s weekly Wednesday night MLB broadcast, ESPN will carry not one but two games in a special double-header schedule.  First up on the day is the closer between the Mets and Cubs in their three-game series.  Coverage is expected to begin at 2pm ET.  The second game on the schedule will see the Red Sox host the Giants in the closer of their two-game series beginning at 7pm ET.

ESPN’s coverage of the Mets-Cubs series is the second game this week that the network has carried. It also carried coverage of the second game in the teams’ series Tuesday night. That game saw the Mets tie up the series at one game a piece.  So the series’ winner will be determined tonight live on ESPN.  Kyle Hendricks (8 – 6) is slated to get the start tonight for the Cubs.  Meanwhile Bartolo Colon (8 – 4) will get the start for the Mets.  Hendricks’ last time on the mound was July 15th against the Rangers.  The Cubs won that game 6 – 0 with Hendricks being credited with the win.  He kept the Rangers bats silent over six innings, allowing only 3 hits and 2 walks.  He didn’t allow any runs, earned runs, or even home runs, and had 3 strike outs.

Colon’s last time on the mound was July 15th against Philadelphia.   He led the Mets to a 5 – 3 win over the Phillies in that game, pitching a total of 5.2 innings.  Even with the win he still had a little bit of a rough time, allowing all three of the Phillies’ runs on 4 hits.  He also allowed 2 walks and had 4 strike outs.  The rest of the Mets bullpen picked up the slack with only team-mate Hansel Robles allowing a hit throughout the remainder of the game.  He and the rest of the Mets’ bullpen kept the Phillies’ bats silent throughout the rest of the game.  By comparison Philadelphia’s Jeremy Hellickson had an even more difficult go of it in the game, allowing 4 runs on 7 hits over 6 innings.  He allowed 4 earned runs and 2 home runs along the way, too and had 5 strike outs.

Going by the numbers the Cubs still have the advantage in the series.  But coming off of last night’s win the Mets have some momentum and motivation for another win.  At the same time, the Cubs will be playing hard, too as they will look to keep from losing two straight.  So today’s game gives audiences and teams plenty to anticipate.  Karl Ravech will once again have the call for this afternoon’s series finale between the Mets and Cubs.  He will be joined in the booth by analyst Dallas Braden and reporter Tim Kurkjian.  The game will be blacked out in both the New York and Chicago market.

 

 

In the second game of the day, the Red Sox and Giants finish off their two-game series tonight at 7pm on ESPN.  Drew Pomeranz (8 – 7) will get the start for Boston in tonight’s game.  Matt Cain (1 – 5) will take the mound for San Francisco.  Cain hasn’t pitched for the Giants in more than a month.  The 31 year-old’s last time taking the mound for the Giants was way back on June 13th.  He pitched 3.2 innings in the game, allowing 3 runs on 5 hits over that span.  He walked 5, allowed 3 earned runs, and had 3 strike outs.

Only a few weeks have passed since Pomeranz last started.  That was back on July 7th before he was traded from the Padres to the Red Sox.  He threw 7 innings in that game, and kept the Dodgers’ bats largely silent over that time allowing only 2 hits and picking up 6 strike outs along the way.  That lowered his ERA to 2.47.

Looking at the bigger picture for tonight’s game on ESPN, the numbers favor Boston for the win.  The Red Sox are 31 – 20 at home so far this season and defeated the Giants in the first game of the teams’ series last night, blanking the Giants 4 – 0.  The Giants meanwhile are in the midst of a 4-game skid and are 5 – 5 in their last ten games versus Boston’s 8 – 2 record in their last ten games.  Coverage of tonight’s game between the Red Sox and Giants begins at 7pm ET on ESPN. The game will be blacked out in the San Francisco market.  John Sciambi will have the call for tonight’s game.  He will be joined in the booth by Doug Glanville and Pedro Gomez for additional commentary.  Following the game, Adnan Virk and John Kruk will have a full re-cap of the game and all of the action around the league on Baseball Tonight.  That will be at 10pm.

ESPN To Present Special MLB Double-Header On July 4th

Courtesy:  ESPN

Courtesy: ESPN

Baseball is the great American past time.  So it is just fitting that on America’s birthday, the nation’s leading sports network will help celebrate the nation’s birthday with a special double-header MLB broadcast.

ESPN opens Monday’s double-header schedule at 4pm with a National League West divisional matchup between Colorado and San Francisco.  The game will be the opener in a three-game series between the teams.  There is no word at this time on who will take the mound for the Giants, who will play host to Colorado for the length of the series.  Right now Tyler Anderson is expected to get the start for Colorado.  Anderson is winless so far in his starts with Colorado.  His last time on the mound was June 29th against Toronto.  Toronto won that game 5- 3 with Anderson taking the loss.  He allowed 3 runs on 8 hits over 6.1 innings in that game.  He only struck out 6 of the 27 batters that he faced, allowing 2 walks, 2 earned runs, and 1 home run along the way, too.  The odds look to be in the Giants’ favor for Monday’s game when one looks at the teams’ numbers.  San Francisco currently sits atop the NL West at 51 – 32 so far on the season.  Its record also makes it one of the top teams in the league heading into the All-Star Break.  Its home record so far this season is 24 – 16 versus Colorado’s current road record of 19 – 23.  Dave Flemming will have the call for Monday’s game.  He will be joined in the booth by Rick Sutcliffe and Eduardo Perez for additional commentary for the game.

The second game on ESPN’s July 4th double-header pits the Tigers against the Indians in their own divisional showdown beginning at 7pm ET.  The teams Cleveland will play host to the Tigers in the first game of a three-game series between the AL Central opponents.  Cleveland currently sits atop the divisional standings while Detroit trails a distant six and a half games back in third.  Detroit has struggled on the road so far this season, sitting currently at 20 – 22 in its road record. Cleveland meanwhile is 23 – 12 at home so far this season.  On a side note the Indians have been just as successful so far this season on the road, sitting at 26 – 19 so far in that record.  The team is 9 – 1 in its last ten games.  There is no word on who will take the mound for Cleveland in Monday night’s game.  Detroit has Daniel Norris currently listed to take the mound for the series’ opener.  The 23 year-old doesn’t have a lot of experience yet this season.  He is only 1 – 0 so far on the season.  So Monday’s game would be a chance for him to really make a big impact on a national stage.  His last time on the mound was June 29th against Miami.  He was credited with the win in that game, having pitched five innings.  He had a relatively good game allowed over that time, too, allowing a total of 8 hits but only 2 runs.  He also struck out 8 of the 24 batters that he faced while allowing only 2 earned runs, 1 walk and no home runs.  By comparison, Miami’s Tom Koehler struggled over the course of his 3 innings on the mound.  He allowed 5 runs on 8 hits, 5 earned runs, 1 walk, and only struck out 2 of 19 batters that he faced.  Considering that, Norris had an impressive outing, giving him plenty of motivation for Monday night’s game.  Adnan Virk will have the call for Monday night’s game.  He will be joined in the booth by analysts Dallas Braden and Tim Kurkjian.  Monday’s double-header will be followed up by Baseball Tonight at 10pm on ESPN.  Those that won’t be near a TV for Monday’s double-header schedule can still catch both games online via WatchESPN.

On a related note, ESPN Radio will carry the Orioles an Dodgers at 8pm in a cross-conference game.  Roxy Bernstein and Raul Ibanez will have the call for the game.  More information on Monday’s MLB broadcast schedule is available online now along with all of the latest MLB headlines at:

ESPN has added three big matchups to its Sunday Night Baseball presented by Taco Bell MLB broadcast schedule for 2016.

On Sunday, June 5th the San Francisco Giants will face off against the St. Louis Cardinals.  The game will be the last of a long 10-game road stretch for the Giants and the closer in the teams’ 3-game weekend series.  Broadcast of the game is scheduled for 8pm ET.  It will be preceded, as always by ESPN’s pre-game broadcast of Baseball Tonight: Sunday Night Countdown presented by Chevrolet.  Currently there is no word on who will take the mound for either team or on either tea’s rotation for the night.

The second game that has been added to ESPN’s June Sunday Night Baseball presented by Taco Bell schedule is a matchup NL Central opponents Pittsburgh and the Chicago Cubs.  The Cubs currently lead not only the NL Central but the league overall while the Pirates are a distant second in the division and even farther back in the overall league standings.  That game, scheduled for Sunday, June 19th, will be the closer in the teams’ 3-game weekend series.  It will be preceded at 7pm ET by Baseball Tonight: Sunday Night Countdown presented by Chevrolet on ESPN.

The third game added to ESPN’s June Sunday Night Baseball presented by Taco Bell schedule will see the Pirates play host to the Dodgers in yet another National League showdown on Sunday, June 26th.  Los Angeles will be well-rested coming into the game having gotten a day off after a 7-game home stand.  It will be the closer in the teams’ three-game weekend series.  And as with the previous games, will b preceded by Baseball Tonight: Sunday Night Countdown on ESPN.

Dan Shulman will be in the booth for all three games.  He will be joined by analysts Aaron Boone and Jessica Mendoza for additional commentary.  Reporter Buster Olney will also be on hand for additional news and interviews throughout each game.

As an additional bonus for fans, ESPN will also carry a special double header on Sunday, June 12th that begins at 5pm with yet another NL matchup—this time between the Pirates and Cardinals.  The Giants will play host to the Dodgers at 8:30pm ET to close out the day.  Both games, and the network’s other scheduled games will be simulcast on television on ESPN and ESPN Deportes, on Radio via ESPN Radio and ESPN Deportes Radio, and online via WatchESPN.  More information on ESPN’s upcoming June MLB broadcast schedule is available online along with all of the latest MLB headlines at:

Astros Look To Avoid Sweep Against Rangers Tonight On ESPN Radio

Courtesy:  ESPN

Courtesy: ESPN

Houston and Texas face off tonight on ESPN Radio.

Tonight’s matchup between the teams is the finale of a three-game series between the AL West foes. And Houston will be hungry for some redemption coming into tonight’s game, as Texas has already taken two of the series’ three-games so far. Nick Martinez is expected to start for the Rangers in tonight’s game while Scott Kazmir will start for Houston, which currently sits third overall in the American League standings behind Kansas City and the New York Yankees. Kazmir’s last time on the mound was last Thursday against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. Houston blanked the Angels 3 – 0 in that game. While Kazmir’s teammate Luke Gregerson was credited with the win, it was Kazmir that carried the ‘Stros through most of the game, throwing one hundred eleven pitches over seven point two innings. Over the course of that time, he fired off five Ks, allowed only three hits, and three walks. He allowed no runs, no earned runs, and no home runs. Of those one hundred eleven total pitches, sixty nine were strikes. That is roughly sixty two percent of his total pitches.

Martinez’s last time on the mound was this past Friday as the Rangers faced the Giants. Texas won that game 6 – 3. Martinez was credited with the win in the game. He pitched 6.1 innings, striking out four batters along the way. He allowed a total of seven hits, two runs, two earned runs, and two walks. Though, he prevented the Giants from knocking any balls out of the park, throwing fifty-nine strikes over the course of ninety-nine pitches for a fifty-nine percent strike rate.

Houston currently sits atop the American League West three games ahead of the Angels. However, Texas has been on a tear as of late, going 6 – 4 in its last ten games and has won its last three straight games, two of which came against the Rangers Monday and Tuesday. Houston is 5 – 5 in its last ten games and lost its last two games. Interestingly enough, Texas is 22 – 29 at home so far on the season whereas Houston is 22 – 30 on the road.

Adam Amin will have the call for tonight’s game live from Texas. He will be joined in the booth by Chris Singleton for additional commentary. Coverage is expected to begin at 7pm ET. More information on ESPN’s MLB coverage is available online along with all of the latest MLB headlines at:

ESPN’s SNB Opens Its July Broadcast Schedule With Giants-Nats Series Closer

Courtesy: ESPN

ESPN will be in the nation’s capital this year for Independence Day weekend.

ESPN announced today that its Sunday, July 5th edition of Sunday Night Baseball presented by Taco Bell will come live from Nationals Park for the closer in a three-game series between the Nats and Giants. Details on starting lineups and who will take the mound for both teams will be announced soon. The game is scheduled for an 8pm ET start time on ESPN. It will also be broadcast in Spanish on ESPN Deportes for ESPN’s Spanish-speaking baseball fans as well as on ESPN Deportes Radio. Those that won’t be near a TV during the game’s broadcast can still hear it live on ESPN and online via WatchESPN. Dan Shulman will have the call for ESPN’s broadcast. He will be joined in the booth by analysts Curt Schilling and John Kruk. Reporter Buster Olney will also be on hand during the game’s broadcast for all of the latest news and insights on the game and other games around the league.

As is the case with each week’s broadcast, Sunday Night Baseball presented by Taco Bell will be preceded by ESPN’s weekly broadcast of Baseball Tonight: Sunday Night Countdown presented by Chevrolet at 7pm ET. Karl Ravech will anchor the broadcast. He will be joined at the desk by Aaron Boone and reporters Tim Kurkjian and Nicole Briscoe.

Coming up this weekend on ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball presented by Taco Bell, the Giants will face in-state and NL West rivals, the Los Angeles Dodgers. Sunday’s game is the closer in a four-game series between the rivals. Details on both teams’ starting lineups and their bullpen rosters will be announced soon. San Francisco currently sits second in the NL West three and a half games back from the Dodgers. The Giants are 34 – 31 so far on the season and 4 – 6 in their last ten games. The team is currently in the midst of a five-game skid. So it will be hungry for a win as it hosts Seattle tonight. Seattle currently sits fourth in the AL West at 27 – 39, five and a half games out of first in the division. The team has gone 5 – 5 in its last ten games. The Dodgers lead the NL West at 37 – 27 and have gone 6-4 in the team’s last ten games. It’s next game is tonight in Texas against the Rangers in the second of a four-game series between the two teams.
