Blog Photo - Game On! Sports Lineup 7/13/13The final weekend of baseball before the All-Star Break commences today with a full slate of games, including a doubleheader in Philadelphia due to rain yesterday. After that, it's the usual random mix of sports that are in season in July. The two main ESPN networks are showing things like lacrosse, softball, and the CFL today. There's also the Team USA B-team in the Gold Cup, the first of two IndyCar races in Toronto, and a Nationwide race with one of the strangest names I've seen in a while (CNBC? Really?).

Here is today’s schedule. All times are eastern and are pm unless otherwise indicated. Personal picks are in bold.

56 wins for the Bucs, one shy of the franchise record for most wins before the all-start break, 57 set back in 1971.

Team USA scored three in the second half and beat Cuba 4-1.

Nationwide race needed three GWC attempts and a red flag to finish, while the IndyCar race was marred with inconsistent officiating. Not motorsports finest hour.

While I've been watching the race, Chris Davis hit another home run.

US and Cuba are 1-1 at the half. US needed a penalty in stoppage time to tie it up.

BTW, Gus Johnson is on the call for that USA-Cuba game.
