While the Dodgers and Giants play their current series, the second straight weekend meetup between the two longtime rivals, here’s some news for a later incarnation of the matchup. On Sept. 5, the Dodgers and Giants will be featured on ESPN ‘Sunday Night Baseball.’
This game, the finale of a three-game series at Oracle Park in San Francisco, is a 4:08 p.m. PT start, with Matt Vasgersian and Alex Rodriguez on the call along with reporter Buster Olney.
The Dodgers then move on to St. Louis on that road trip for a four-game series with the Cardinals, with an 11:15 a.m. PT start on Labor Day Monday, the day after this night game.
For now, this will be the second Sunday night game for the Dodgers, who were also on the ESPN flagship game on April 25 against the Padres at home.
ESPN hasn’t yet revealed the full ‘Sunday Night Baseball’ schedule for the season, keeping their options open for later in the season, depending on performance. So far, every Sunday night through July 18 is accounted for, except for June 27, as well as the first two Sundays in September.
This Saturday’s Dodgers-Giants game is on Fox, with Joe Davis again on the call, the second of three consecutive Saturday’s the Dodgers will be televised exclusively by Fox.
