5) Major League Baseball
One of the greatest rivalries in all of Major League Baseball takes place on Saturday night when the San Francisco Giants (30-26) host the Los Angeles Dodgers (37-20) on FOX (Saturday, 7 PM ET). The fact that the Dodgers are 10 games above .500 on the road already this season at 20-10 is extremely impressive. The Dodgers have the best record in the senior circuit, and are five percentage points higher than the New York Mets.

Among the golfers in the field are defending champion Rory McIlroy, PGA Championship winner Justin Thomas, and Masters champion Scottie Scheffler. The leader after 36 holes is American Wyndham Clark at -7.
