ESPN has announced the matchup for the July 31st edition of Sunday Night Baseball presented by Taco Bell.
ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball presented by Taco Bell closes out July with a cross conference showdown between the Seattle Mariners and the Chicago Cubs. The game will be the closer in a three-game weekend series between the teams. There is currently no word on either team’s rotation or who will take the mound on either side of the ball at this time. The numbers currently favor Chicago not just in the game but in the series in whole. Chicago is currently 28 – 15 at home so far on the season while Seattle is 23 – 24 on the road. The Mariners currently sit third in the AL West, 8.5 games behind the division-leading Texas Rangers while the Cubs currently lead the NL Central at 55 – 36.
The July 31st edition of ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball presented by Taco Bell will mark the first time since 2004 that the Mariners have made an appearance on the network’s weekly Sunday night MLB broadcast. Seattle faced another Chicago team—the White Sox—in that game. Coverage of the game is expected to begin at 8pm ET on ESPN. Dan Shulman will have the call for the game. He will be joined in the booth by analysts Aaron Boone and Jessica Mendoza for additional commentary. Reporter Buster Olney will also be on hand for all of the latest in-game news and interviews. Pre-game coverage of the game begins at 7pm ET on Baseball Tonight: Sunday Night Countdown presented by Chevrolet. Karl Ravech will anchor the broadcast and will be joined at the desk by analyst Dallas Braden and reporter Tim Kurkjian.
