How to watch Rays vs. Astros: MLB playoffs live stream, schedule, TV channel, start time for ALCS Game 3

The Tampa Bay Rays have won the first two games of the American League Championship Series against the Houston Astros and can push their opponent to the brink of elimination in Game 3 at Petco Park in San Diego.

Manuel Margot was the hero for Tampa Bay in Game 2, hitting a three-run homer and making a stunning catch in the 4-2 win. But the Rays managed just four hits in the game and needed their bullpen to work four innings, further stressing a staff that has been used heavily up to this point.

Astros shortstop Carlos Correa has been on fire in the postseason, hitting another home run in Game 2. Correa is 11-for-26 with five home runs, 13 RBI and eight walks in eight games.
