Pirates Will Play the Cardinals on ESPN Sunday Night Baseball This Year


The Pittsburgh Pirates have announced a few schedule changes for the upcoming season, due to a few games being moved to national TV. The affected games are as follows.

**Saturday, July 11 vs. the St. Louis Cardinals has been changed from 4:05 p.m. to 7:15 p.m. and will be an exclusive FOX national telecast.

**Sunday, July 12 game vs. the St. Louis Cardinals has been selected by ESPN for its exclusive National Sunday Night Baseball telecast. As a result, the first pitch will move from 1:35 p.m. to 8:05 p.m. The Pirates played the Cardinals last year on Sunday Night Baseball on May 11th.

**Saturday, August 8 vs. the Los Angeles Dodgers has been moved from the originally-scheduled time of 7:05 p.m. to 4:05 p.m. to accommodate the national telecast on FoxSports1.

**Saturday, August 22 vs. the San Francisco Giants has also been moved from the originally-scheduled time of 7:05 p.m. to 4:05 p.m. to accommodate the national telecast on FoxSports1.

The big thing here is the Sunday Night Baseball game on ESPN. The timing of the game will be right around the time of the year where playoff races start to get serious, and should hopefully feature the Pirates and Cardinals battling it out at the top of the NL Central.
