How to watch Game 5 of the American League Division Series

Join a watch party or follow from home

MLB: ALDS-Houston Astros at Tampa Bay Rays Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Tonight, the Tampa Bay Rays and the Houston Astros will engage in a pivotal game five, where the loser’s World Series hopes are dashed while the winners will advanced to the League Championship Series to take on the New York Yankees on Saturday for game one.

Unfortunately, tonight’s game is taking place in Houston so the Rays thunderous home crowd that had been so intense from start to finish in games three and four will not be a factor for game five.

However, you can still bond with the Rays community as the Rays will be hosting a trio watch parties around the area starting at 5pm.
