It all comes down to this.
The Washington Nationals and the Houston Astros. Game 7. All or nothing. Whoever wins tonight’s game will be the 2019 World Series champion. Whoever loses will have a long winter to contemplate the loss.
The 2019 World Series wasn’t one that, on paper, at least, seemed like it would be dramatic. But it certainly has had its moments. The Nationals, who no one thought had a chance, have forced a tie. It’s the first time in 1,420 best-of-seven series across MLB, the NHL and the NBA that the road team has won the first six games. And Tuesday’s game had both a controversial interference call from the home plate umpire and saw Nat’s manager Dave Martinez ejected from the game (as his assistant coaches held him back and tried to get him to calm down for his own health.
Tonight, both teams will be feeling the stress. And that could make for some exciting baseball. Max Scherzer will take the mount for the Nationals and Zack Greinke will lead things for the Astros. It’s winner take all. And it’s can’t miss TV.
What time does Game 7 between the Nationals and Astros start?
The game begins at 8:08 p.m. ET on Fox. It’s being played in Houston.
How can I watch the 2019 World Series for free—even if I don’t have cable?
The best way to watch any sort of network programming for free on a big screen is with a good HD antenna. This year, the World Series is being broadcast on Fox, meaning you’ve got a good chance of capturing the game over the air, which costs nothing beyond the equipment prices. To ensure you’re getting the most reliable signal, you’ll want to test the antenna in multiple locations in your home.
Can I stream the World Series live online if I don’t have a cable subscription?
