What to Watch in Sports This Weekend

Any sports fan knows that this part of the year is the most torturous. We're officially in the lull between the NBA Playoffs and the start of college football season. Luckily, baseball prefers playing during the summer, so all is not lost. But it's still slim pickings on TV most of the time.

In case you find yourself slowly sinking into the couch at a loss for what sporting action to check out, here's a rundown of what to watch this weekend.

The Return of Baseball

It was a grueling three-day break from baseball's regular-season schedule -- with a memorable Home Run Derby and All-Star Game sprinkled in, of course -- but this weekend all 30 teams return to action. Most are involved in matchups within their division that aren't worth much attention unless you're a fan of the team, but there are a few noteworthy exceptions.

Among the biggest of this weekend's series is the matchup between the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim and the Boston Red Sox. The teams boast the best and third-best records in the majors, respectively, and with their divisional rivals the Oakland A's and New York Yankees also playing each other, neither club can afford to lose the series.

It should be interesting to watch, and the Sunday game can be seen nationally on ESPN (DIS - Get Report).

British Open

The 137th British Open Championship officially kicked off first-round play on Thursday, but the coverage will continue until the final shot on Sunday.
