The Los Angeles Dodgers are one win away from their first World Series championship in 32 years. The Dodgers won Game 5 on Sunday behind a strong start from Clayton Kershaw and three-plus shutout innings from its bullpen. The Tampa Bay Rays will try to extend the series to a full seven games and win Games 6 and 7, a feat the Washington Nationals accomplished last year after dropping Game 5 against the Houston Astros.
Tonight's starters will be a repeat of Game 2: lefty Blake Snell for the Rays and rookie Tony Gonsolin for the Dodgers. Snell turned in a strong if abbreviated performance in his previous start to lead the Rays to a Game 2 win, while Gonsolin recorded only four outs before the Dodgers turned to their bullpen.
Game 6 of the World Series starts today, Tuesday Oct. 27, at 8 p.m. ET (5 p.m. PT) on Fox.

Other ways to watch postseason baseball online
MLB.TV is great for watching out-of-market baseball games during the regular season, but it's less useful for tuning into baseball's postseason because you must be a subscriber to a participating pay TV provider. The list is short and can be found here. If you are a subscriber to one of the pay TV providers listed, the MLB.TV Postseason Package will run you $25. To sweeten the deal, the Postseason Package includes spring training games next year.
Another option if you're a cable subscriber is using the Fox Sports Go app. Unlike the MLB.com At Bat, you can watch the World Series for free -- well, for no more than you're already paying for cable. The Fox Sports Go app works with iOS devices, Android devices and the Amazon Kindle Fire as well as with Apple TV, Android TV, Amazon Fire TV, Google Chromecast, Roku and Xbox. You can also access Fox Sports Go from a computer.
