It’s been another bittersweet season as DirecTV and several other cable providers have continued to hold out on adding Time Warner Cable’s SportsNet LA to their programming. TWC’s merger with Charter has helped matters and led to record ratings for SportsNet LA.
However, some fans have been relegated to catching the Los Angeles Dodgers on national broadcasts, which are few and far between. With the regular season winding down, fans are being given another opportunity to watch their Dodgers as ESPN announced they will broadcast the three-game series finale between the Dodgers and Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim on Sept. 9.
The game will not be blacked out locally and will also be televised on SportsNet LA for those who prefer the home-team feed. The Dodgers thus have have had their fair share of success against the Angels, sweeping the three games in the first Freeway Series played this season. By completing the sweep, Los Angeles set a record with six consecutive victories over the Angels.
The Freeway Series in Anaheim, beginning Labor Day (Sept. 7), will be the final Interleague play for the Dodgers this season. It’s been a rough go for them against the American League in 2015 as they’re just 8-9, including 0-7 on the road.
Last season the Dodgers took three of the four from the Angels, splitting the pair of games at Dodger Stadium and sweeping the two-game series in Anaheim.
