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

1  Tides tend to turn following baseball’s All-Star break. Perhaps the Arizona Diamondbacks can shake their first-half funk and dispatch the Los Angeles Dodgers, who lap insistently at the Snakes’ first-place door. Game one of the home series starts Friday, July 18, at 6:30 p.m. on FoxSports AZ.

2  The golf world prepares to play its first major since Tiger opted for knee surgery, with the 137th running of the British Open. The $8.6 million purse doesn’t stretch as far in Euros. First-round coverage tees off 7 a.m. Thursday, July 17, on TNT.

3  The kids are all right: Skateboarding’s top tournament — The Maloof Money Cup — handed out nearly $500,000 in prize money to sidewalk surfers last Sunday. Here’s your chance to catch the repeat coverage, this Sunday, July 20, at noon on CBS.

4  If all that skateboarding leaves you with a taste for action sports, switch to the AST Dew Tour’s BMX Park Finals and catch well-insured bike stunt riders flipping and zipping through the air. Coverage starts Sunday, July 20, on NBC at 1 p.m.
