Sunday Night Cubs/Phillies Game Is At 7:05 CDT

New, 35 comments

You may have a Cubs schedule, or a ticket for tonight's game, that has a game time of 5:05 pm.

Don't be fooled and don't turn on the TV or show up early. Game time tonight has been changed to 7:05 CDT. Reason: ESPN used to show the ESPY Awards on a tape delay at 8 pm CDT on the third Sunday in July, and thus would make that Sunday's night game an earlier start.

When they decided to show the ESPY Awards live earlier this week, they moved this Sunday's Cubs/Phillies game back to the regular Sunday night starting time of 7:05 CDT.

Seven. O. Five. Be there. Tonight's game preview will post at 5 pm CDT.
