Hey, Houston has new life! Lovely. Tampa takes its third try at sealing the series, as southpaw Blake Snell faces off against Astros lefty Framber Valdez. Sets up as a nice pitching duel.
First pitch is thrown at 5 p.m. on TBS.
The Dodgers are in worse shape than the Astros, down 3-1 to Atlanta and hoping to stave off elimination behind Dustin May. If L.A. can win tonight, Walker Buehler takes Game 6 and gives Los Angeles a decent shot at a Game 7. It’s rookie southpaw A.J. Minter for Atlanta.
The NLCS tips off on FS1 at 8 p.m.
