MLB: Cincinnati Reds at New York Mets (1:00 PM, Fox Sports Ohio)
After taking the first two games of the weekend series with a 7-3 win Friday night and a 4-1 win Saturday, the Cincinnati Reds look to sweep the New York Mets Sunday afternoon for the first time since 2005 -- and the first series sweep in New York since 2001. Ace Johnny Cueto (7-3, 2.46 ERA) takes the hill.

NASCAR Sprint Cup: Quicken Loans 400 (1:00 PM, TNT)
Marcos Ambrose and Kevin Harvick will lead the front row at Michigan for a projected 1:16 PM green flag. Matt Kenseth, starting sixth, leads the series by ten points over Dale Earnhardt Jr. (starting No. 17).

MLB: New York Yankees at Washington Nationals (1:30PM, TBS)
The Yankees have taken a 2-0 lead in the weekend series after Saturday's 5-3 win in 14 innings. Bryce Harper went 0-7 with five strikes outs, grounding out with two men on base to end the game.

U.S. Open Golf: Final-Round (4:00 PM, NBC)
Graeme McDowell and Jim Furyk both lead the event at one-under, heading in the final round of the major. Tiger Woods, the biggest reason most people will watch golf on a sports-packed Sunday afternoon, shot a disastrous 75 on Saturday, which included six bogies. He only shot five bogies in the first two rounds combined. Though I suppose if anyone can make up a five-shot deficit on a difficult course, Tiger could (well he would have used to, not so sure today).

MLS Soccer: Chicago vs. New York (5:00 PM, NBC Sports)
According to the MLS season standings, Chicago and New York are decent teams.

MLB: Boston Red Sox at Chicago Cubs (8:00 PM, ESPN)
Boston tied the weekend series after a 4-3 win on Saturday, making Sunday Night's game the rubber match between two historical clubs (that no one in Cincinnati really likes).
