World Series tonight: Game 1 SF Giants vs KC Royals preview TV time

The World Series kicks off tonight with Game 1 between two teams with something in common – and not merely the fact that their hometowns are popularly abbreviated by their initials. The San Francisco Giants and Kansas City Royals both reached Major League Baseball’s pinnacle in easy fashion and have now each gotten a good chunk of rest heading into tonight’s game. KC has yet to lose a postseason game, cruising through their ALDS and ALCS series, while SF has been nearly as dominant over its National League opponents – and tonight, the unstoppable force meets the proverbial immovable object on national television.

San Francisco is sending pitcher Madison Bumgarner to the mound, while Kansas City is trotting out James Shields tonight. But while starting pitchers are accustomed to several days rest between playing, it’s the position players from both teams who have been placed in the odd position of sitting on their hands since their respective series ended. Tonight’s Game 1 should offer the first hint as to which players have used the time off to recover from lingering injury and freshen up their focus, and which players have allowed the downtime to make them rusty.

KC Royals vs SF Giants in Game One of the 2014 World Series has a start time tonight of 8:00pm eastern time and airs on TV channel FOX Network.

Talladega NASCAR race today: Sprint Cup time TV live stream schedule

The NASCAR Sprint Cup heads to Talladega today for the Geico 500 Sprint Cup NASCAR race on the schedule with the Chase for the Cup heating up. Twelve drivers remain in contention with Joey Logano leading the pack by just six points over the field, and the standings largely turned upside down since the regular season ended. The race has an odd start time and airs on a national TV channel as well as online with a live stream.

Logano leads the Sprint Cup standings heading into the Talladega NASCAR race today, with Kyle Busch six points behind in second place. Kevin Harvick is in third place, seven points off the lead. Ryan Newman is eleven points back and Carl Edwards is a dozen points off the pace, rounding out the top five. Jeff Gordon and Dale Earnhardt Jr, who spent much of the regular season battling each other for the points lead, are now in sixth and twelfth place respectively. Talladega, Alabama is one of the most historic and prestigious tracks on the NASCAR circuit, and the race is the second Sprint Cup action of the season at the track. Denny Hamlin won the Aaron’s 499 here back in May of this year; he’s currently seventh in the Chase standings.

Sunday’s Talladega NASCAR Sprint Cup race has a start time schedule of 2:00pm eastern time and airs on TV channel ESPN at the same time as NFL football action on competing networks. The race will also air as a live stream on the watchespn.com website.

LSU Tigers v. Kentucky game tonight: TV channel time live stream

The LSU Tigers enter their game tonight with more losses on the season than their opponent Kentucky, to the surprise of everyone involved. LSU has lost to Auburn and Mississippi State to drop the team out of SEC conference contention and out of the national rankings. The Kentucky Wildcats are 5-1 and would be undefeated if not for a triple-overtime loss to Florida, putting them a half game out of the SEC East lead. Tonight’s game has an early start time and airs on a niche TV channel – a sign of how far LSU has fallen this season – as well as a live stream online.

Running back Leonard Fournette has one focal point on the LSU offense this season with 504 rushing yards and six touchdowns. The other is wide receiver Travin Dural, who has 626 receiving yards and six TD scores of his own. Kentucky is led by quarterback Patrick Towles, who has amassed 1500 passing yards and ten touchdown passes. The LSU Tigers are counting on home field advantage tonight to help them get their season back on track.

Tonight’s Kentucky vs LSU college football game has a start time schedule of 7:30pm eastern time and airs on TV channel SEC Network as well as the watchespn.com online live stream.
