The Cubs were supposed to be on ESPN Sunday Night Baseball vs. the Cardinals August 9 from St. Louis, but that game was postponed due to COVID-19 concerns.

This Sunday’s Cubs/Cardinals game from Wrigley Field will be televised by ESPN as part of its Sunday night package at 6 p.m. CT.

Thursday, the network announced that the Cubs/Twins game on Sunday, September 20 will be its featured Sunday Night Baseball game at 6 p.m. CT. As usual, Matt Vasgersian, Alex Rodriguez and Buster Olney will call the game.

The Cubs have been a frequent recent guest on SNB, given their good play over the last few years and the team’s popularity. For the Twins, though, this will be their first SNB appearance in 10 years, since a game August 22, 2010 against the Angels at Target Field.

While there will still be a week remaining in the abbreviated 2020 season after that, there won’t be a Sunday night game September 27, as MLB wants all the games that day to begin in the 3 p.m. ET hour. Thus this Cubs/Twins game will be SNB’s final broadcast for this season.
