Dodgers vs Rays time, channel

The Dodgers vs Rays game 5 is scheduled to start at 8:08 p.m. ET today (Sunday, Oct. 25). All World Series live streams are on Fox, and the full series schedule is below.

Let’s play ball! Tonight, the Dodgers vs Rays live stream is going to provide us with a game 5 that feels almost like a repeat of game 3, as Tampa Bay just evened the series again. But this time, the stakes are higher as we’re closer to the end, plus LA’s entering this game with a little more stinging pain from their loss, as late-game chaos led to a frustrating tied series.

Saturday’s MLB playoffs live stream saw the Rays down 7-6 in the bottom of the 9th — with two outs and two strikes — when reserve outfielder Brett Phillips hit a single to center, bringing home the tying run. And then the chaos unfurled. Yes, losing a late game lead wasn’t bad enough, as what followed was … erroneous to say the least.

As the Rays’ rookie outfielder Randy Arozarena leapt off first and never pauses, Dodgers outfielder Chris Taylor accidentally kicked the ball with his foot, before throwing the ball to Max Muncy at first, who lobbed it to catcher Will Smith. Smith had all the time to get Arozarena out at home, but he dropped the ball and it flew, enabling Arozarena to score at home.

So, here we are with a series where the first to 2 wins takes the World Series, and baseball writers (yet again) get to make this story about Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw. While Kershaw silenced some doubters — and evened his world series record at 2-2 in game 1 — game 5’s going to be one of the biggest starts of his career, and a chance for him to control his own narrative.

This round of baseball is a bit unique and odd, as it won’t be played in either team’s ballpark, as the Texas Rangers’ Globe Life Field plays host to the two teams left standing.
