Pregame Reads

  • An oral history of Kirk Gibson’s famous limping home run, on its 25th anniversary, by Arash Markazi for ESPN L.A.
  • The guy who took probably the best photo of Torii Hunter’s flip explains how he got the shot.
  • The first dude to ever be famous simply for being ridiculously muscular is remembered by Hunter Oatman-Stanford for Collectors Weekly.

Starter

St. Louis Cardinals vs. L.A. Dodgers, 4:00p.m. (TBS)
There has been some discontent on the part of the Cardinals for what they see as disrespectful celebrations by the Dodgers in this series. What they may not understand is that Adrian Gonzalez was merely at the “sand the floor” stage of his training by Mr. Miyagi.


Reserves

MLB
Boston Red Sox vs. Detroit Tigers, 8:00p.m. (Fox)

NHL
New York Rangers vs. Washington Capitals, 8:00p.m. (NBC Sports & Live Extra)
Calgary Flames vs. Anaheim Ducks, 10:00p.m.

MLS
Montreal Impact vs. L.A. Galaxy, 10:30p.m.

NBA Preseason
Orlando Magic vs. Houston Rockets, 8:00p.m. (NBA TV)
Dwight Howard was the target of rage from burned Laker fans in a recent preseason game. The new Rockets center was booed when introduced and every time he got the ball by spiteful L.A. faithful. It’s not surprising, until you consider that the game was against the Houston vs. Indiana… and it was played in the Philippines.

Soccer
Brazil League: Santos vs. Internacional, 6:25p.m. (ESPN3)

Volleyball
AVP Next- Huntington Beach, 5:00p.m. (CBS Sports)
NCAA Women’s: Miami vs. Florida State, 8:00p.m. (ESPNU)

Golf

TV
Crossfit Games, 8:00p.m. (ESPN)
Inside the NFL, 9:00p.m. (Showtime)
Boundless, 10:00p.m. (Esquire)

In a promo for this week’s episode, which follows the fellas on a canoe race in South Africa, Turbo says, “It was the paddle or my life, so I said f— the paddle.” The right choice — though, since this is Esquire, it was probably an artisan, hand-crafted leather paddle with custom embossing.


The Ultimate Fighter: Team Rousey vs. Team Tate, 10:00p.m. (Fox Sports 1)
The League, 10:30p.m. (FXX)
