The Dodgers had another game moved into a national television spot, with their June 27 home game against the Cubs selected by ESPN to feature on ‘Sunday Night Baseball.’

The game was originally slated for a 1:10 p.m. start, but will now begin at 4:08 p.m. PT. The series finale against the Cubs will be called by Matt Vasgersian along with analyst Alex Rodriguez and reporter Buster Olney.

The Saturday game in that four-game series is also an exclusive national TV broadcast, on Fox, which means no SportsNet LA for the final two games against the Cubs.

On May 28, ESPN selected the Dodgers-Giants game on September 5 in San Francisco for an ESPN ‘Sunday Night Baseball’ telecast. To date, every Sunday night game is accounted for through July 18, as well as the first two Sundays in September. Future ‘Sunday Night Baseball’ games will be selected at a later date.

The Dodgers have played once so far this season on ‘Sunday Night Baseball,’ falling to the Padres on April 25 at Dodger Stadium.
