With a game scheduled to begin at 8:05 p.m.
ET, the Dodgers have already secured home-field advantage for the series.
That means that the Yankees will be playing on a weekday in Los Angeles, but it’s unlikely they’ll be in a hurry to play in the stadium that has seen more than its fair share of noise and controversy this season.
The Dodgers, for their part, will be hoping for a relatively quiet afternoon and evening in their home park, but their fans will still be looking forward to the World Cup final.
The first of three games is expected to kick off at 6:15 p.p.m., and if the Dodgers don’t win it, they’ll get the chance to make up some ground on the Yankees.
The game will be streamed live on ESPN3.
The game will also be available on MLB.com and MLB Advanced Media’s mobile apps.
The first game between the teams is expected in front of a sold-out crowd of about 2,500 fans at Dodger Stadium, which is located just east of downtown Los Angeles.
In the past, the game has been marred by the fact that some seats in the stands weren’t even full when the first pitch was given off.
On Monday night, there were plenty of fans standing in the bleachers as the first inning got underway, but that didn’t stop some people from venting their anger over the situation.
In addition to the fans who sat through the whole game, there was also a number of other people who took their seats in their designated seats in front, making the game difficult to watch for many fans.
