Weekend Watchdog

It's the last weekend to enjoy your interleague play for the season. So we've got the big matchups - Yankees at Mets, Cubs at White Sox, L.A. Angels at ...Arizona. Well, it's hard to balance schedules when the West and Central divisions have different number of teams.
Locally, the MASN crews get a workout as the Orioles and Nationals are at the same park. One crew's feed goes out on MASN HD, and the other is delegated to MASN2.
You can get your Yankees and Mets on MLB Network Saturday night or ESPN Sunday night. The Cubs and White Sox and Angels-Diamondbacks join the Red Sox and Braves as the choices for Fox's Saturday afternoon coverage. TBS has the Red Sox and Braves Sunday afternoon.
South Africa is getting ready for World Cup 2010, and - big surprise - the United States reached the final of the warmup tournament - the Confederation Cup. The final Sunday matches the U.S. and Brazil on ESPN.
Wimbledon closes the first week of its fortnight on ESPN2 and NBC. Before the "Breakfast at Wimbledon" finals next weekend, ESPN2 shows live coverage starting Friday at 7 a.m. and Saturday at 8 a.m.
If you didn't get enough thinking about the future with Thursday's NBA draft, then you can watch the NHL draft Friday on Versus. These picks are more likely headed to the ECHL, AHL or back to their Canadian junior leagues, but you can dream of the impact they'll have down the road.
South Carolina's good news story of the week - Lucas Glover - plays in the Travelers tournament this weekend. After winning the U.S. Open and all the attention that draws, see how he does on CBS.
