It’s going be a good ol’ fashioned Texas showdown as the Rangers take on the Houston Astros in the MLB American League Championship Series starting on Sunday, Oct. 15 at 7:15 p.m. in Houston.
For the first time ever, the Texas Rangers will face their Lone Star State rivals in the post-season. Watch the game on FOX or head to the Arlington Entertainment District to channel that home-field advantage.
The Rangers return to Globe Life Field for Game 3 on Wednesday, Oct. 18, Game 4 on Thursday, Oct. 19, and Game 5 (if necessary) on Friday, Oct. 20. If tickets are sold out — or out-of-the-park expensive — bookmark this guide to get in on the action without going to the game.
