The United States Olympic trials continues and the dog days of summer (a bit early it seems) invites the comfort of (previously titled) America's Pastime back into our summer routines. The Euro 2012 tournament will have a "final four" by day's end, a promising pitching duel and the college world series will bring today's sports on television to a close.

Cincinnati tied the weekend series at one after Johnny Cueto dominated the Twins during Saturday's Reds Hall of Fame enshrinement of Dan Driessen, Sean Casey and John Reilly. Mike Leake (2-5, 4.70 ERA) takes the mound against Minnesota's Scott Diamond (5-3, 2.57).

NASCAR Sprint Cup: Toyota/Save Mart 350 (3:00 PM, TNT)
If you thought NASCAR was boring running around in circles (I actually don't but many do), then you'll hate NASCAR on a road course. Though the cars perform fine on a road course, there is far fewer chances for cars to pass each other.

MLB Baseball: New York Yankees at New York Mets (8:00 PM, ESPN2)
The rubber match for the weekend series comes down to two of the better pitchers in the game. The Mets' R.A. Dickey (11-1, 2.00 ERA), coming off back-to-back one-hit shutouts, has won his last six starts holding opponents to a .131 batting average. C.C. Sabathia has won nine games already this year, sporting a 3.55 ERA.

College World Series: Finals, Game One (8:00 PM, ESPN2)
South Carolina is looking to win their third consecutive College World Series, starting with Game One of the three-game series.
