ESPN Sunday Night Baseball Adds Dodgers-Giants Game On Sept. 18

Originally published by

ESPN picked up the series finale between the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Francisco Giants at Oracle Park for Sunday Night Baseball on Sept. 18.

It marks the fifth appearance on Sunday Night Baseball for the Dodgers this season, and fourth for the Giants. The teams previously met on July 21 in ESPN’s national second-half opener.

The Dodgers are 14-4 against the Giants and their Sunday Night Baseball meeting marks their final matchup of the regular season.

First pitch is scheduled for 4:08 p.m. PT. As always, play-by-play man Karl Ravech, analysts Eduardo Perez and World Series Champion David Cone, and MLB insider Buster Olney will be on the call.

The Sunday Night Baseball franchise is in its 33rd season as the exclusive MLB game of the week. In addition to ESPN, the game will be carried on ESPN Radio (with Jon “Boog” Sciambi and Doug Glanville), ESPN Deportes and the ESPN App.

“Baseball Tonight: Sunday Night Countdown” will precede the game at 5 p.m. PT on ESPN. Nicole Briscoe will host alongside analysts Jessica Mendoza and Tim Kurkjian, and senior MLB insider Jeff Passan.

Inclement weather is in the forecast and in the event of a rainout, the game could be rescheduled for Monday, Sept. 26, which is currently an off day for both the Dodgers and Giants.

Dodgers-Giants opener streamed on Apple TV+ for “Friday Night Baseball”

The Dodgers and Giants’ series opener also aired nationally on Apple TV+ for the weekly “Friday Night Baseball” stream.

“Friday Night Baseball” programming includes coverage prior to first pitch and after the game goes final, with host Lauren Gardner and a rotating group of analysts Carlos Peña, Cliff Floyd and Yonder Alonso.

The Dodgers will be back on the streaming platform Sept. 23, for their series opener against the St. Louis Cardinals. They previously appeared on Peacock as the “MLB Sunday Leadoff” game.
