The Dodgers end their homestand with two games against the division-leading Giants, and Tuesday’s game will be televised nationally by ESPN.
Dave Flemming and Jessica Mendoza will call the 7:10 p.m. game for ESPN, a full national telecast that won’t be blacked out in local markets. SportsNet LA will still call the game, for instance.
Tuesday is the fifth national TV broadcast for the Dodgers in a nine-game span. Here’s a look at the national television schedule for the rest of the year, with the caveat that more games (ESPN, Fox, TBS) will be added as the season progresses.
