ESPN CONTINUES TO PLAY HOME RUN DERBY WITH SCHEDULING

          ESPN has added games to its MLB schedule surrounding
     the HR and playoff races.  The Reds-Cubs game Sunday will
     air on ESPN at 2:00pm ET, with updates on the Cards-Brewers. 
     On Tuesday, ESPN will air either the Cubs-Brewers or Astros-
     Cards, with updates from the other.  Wednesday doubleheader
     lineups on ESPN and ESPN2 have yet to be determined.  Next
     Friday, ESPN will show either Cubs-Astros or Expos-Cards at
     8:00pm ET in a primetime special.  On September 27, the
     final day of the regular-season, ESPN2 will air either a
     playoff-determining game or a Cubs or Cards game (ESPN).  
          FIRST RATE: WGN-TV earned a 15.3/31 in Chicago for
     Monday's game in which Sammy Sosa hit his 61st and 62nd HRs
     of the season (THE DAILY).  Fox Sports Ohio's Indians-Twins
     game on Wednesday, in which the Indians clinched the AL
     Central title, was the second-highest-rated Indians game of
     the season, earning a 13 rating (Fox Sports Ohio).
