The post-season MLB live streams are live and we’ve already got a team on the brink of elimination. Sunday’s Astros vs White Sox live stream will show if Chicago can stay alive or if Houston will sweep their way into the ALCS.
Boston managed to avoid such a fate, evening up their series with Tampa Bay 1-1. Sunday’s Rays vs Red Sox live stream will show which side can take that 2-1 advantage. Meanwhile in the NLDS, Saturday’s Game 2 matchups will either result in 2-0 leads or 1-1 ties.
In that NLDS, the Dodgers vs Giants live stream has LA looking for its first win and its first run of the post-season. Not a good spot to be in. The Braves vs Brewers live stream is somewhat similar, as Milwaukee is hoping to support its starting pitcher with a bit more offense off the bat.
As for how to watch the season’s games, ESPN will have some national games, but a lot of local games require either a cable service or AT&T TV. More details below.
Latest MLB news (updated October 9)
- Houston battered Chicago 4-9, giving them a 2-0 lead and a chance to end the series on Sunday

- Out in the NLDS, the Brewers went up a game winning 1-2, and the Giants blanked the Dodgers 0-4.
