You really have to question May 31st and Sept 6th? They are holidays, people are off of work to watch the game.
Cubs day games are games that they have traditionally broadcast. I have always felt they did it because for years we could watch the games on WGN and they didn't want us watching WGN so they broadcast also. Either that or, since WGN/CSN broadcast every game, they knew they would have a broadcast of the game to piggy back on.
The SF game in August, I am only guessing because, since it is such a late start, most people would be able to catch at least half of it after work unlike a 12:35 game.
