A few key matchups are on tap for the week. Don’t miss these — in person or on your television.

1 Come out and see baseball played for the love of sport, as Little League All-Star tourneys showcase young sluggers throughout the week. For league schedules and locations of CDO, Coronado, Coronado Ranch, Marana and Thornydale games, log onto,,,,

2 As of deadline, the .500 Arizona Diamondbacks lounge atop the NL West. Far below and sliding, the San Diego Padres cross the desert to provide padding for the Snakes’ rudderless lead. The pillow fight of first- and last-place teams goes live Friday, July 4, on FoxSports AZ at 6:30 p.m.

3 Last year, Accenture ops guru Stephen Nutt accepted the setup nod for the inaugural Tiger-hosted AT&T National. Neither will attend the $6 million event this year, but seventh-ranked Steve Stricker leads the list of golfers committed. First-round coverage begins Thursday, July 3, at 5:30 p.m. on the Golf Channel.

4 The favorite 104-octane gasoline blend of stock car racing costs $6.75 per gallon — but fuel sponsors give the stuff away to racers. At least NASCAR found pushers with sympathy. Tune in for Daytona’s Coke Zero 400, Saturday, July 5, at 5 p.m. on TNT, and be glad you don’t have to drive there.
