Halloween was a spooky night for Diamondback fans. The Texas Rangers took a commanding lead in Game 4 of the 2023 World Series and never looked back. Now, with Game Five looming, the question is… will the Rangers claim their first World Series victory tonight?
Arizona has the home field advantage, but that hasn’t helped them out for the past two games. The Rangers, though, are having to juggle injuries to right fielder Adolis Garcia and Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer, which could be a devastating blow. Both players are out for the rest of the Series.
It’s bringing back bad memories of 2011, when the Rangers were one strike away from winning, only to fall short, but for viewers it makes for a riveting television event.

How can I watch the 2023 World Series for free—even if I don’t have cable?
All you need is an over-the-air antenna. The World Series is being broadcast on Fox, meaning you’ve got a very good chance of watching the game without cable. Antennas usually ranges between $10 and $20. To ensure you’re getting the most reliable signal, get a good HD antenna and test it in multiple locations in your home.
Can I stream the 2023 World Series live online if I don’t have a cable subscription?
Absolutely! If you do have a cable subscription, the game is being streamed live on the Fox Sports Go app. (You can also try logging into Fox.com or use the Fox Now app.) Otherwise, try one of these.
