Saturday's sports TV highlights.


United States vs. South Korea, 3:30 p.m., ESPN

It's the final warmup before the Women's World Cup for the United States national team, and the Americans are focused on the game, not the scandal engulfing FIFA. The U.S. faces South Korea, which qualified for just its second World Cup, at Red Bull Arena in Harrison, New Jersey.


Kansas City at Chicago Cubs, 6:15 p.m., Fox

Tsuyoshi Wada (0-0, 2.70 ERA) will start in place of Jason Hammel, whom the Cubs are giving an extra day to heal a cracked fingernail on his right hand. The Royals' Yordano Ventura (3-4, 4.64) took batting practice last week in anticipation of his first start in a National League stadium this season.


Chicago at Anaheim, 7 p.m. NBC

These teams both lost the last time they played a Game 7, with the Ducks losing to the Kings in last season's conference semifinals and the Blackhawks also falling to Los Angeles in the conference finals. Chicago lost on its home ice last year, but the Hawks will have to win on the road to reach their second Stanley Cup Finals in three years.
