World Series 2018: The World Series 2018 kicks off on Tuesday night, as two of baseball’s most storied franchises will square off in this year’s Fall Classic.
The Boston Red Sox won 108 games during the regular season and have avenged back-to-back ALDS exits by knocking off the rival New York Yankees and the reigning champion Houston Astros. The Red Sox have won three titles in the past 14 years and will look to make it four in 15 years this October.
Opposing them on the National League side of things are the Los Angeles Dodgers, who came one win away from winning it all last year. Despite making six straight playoff appearances, the Dodgers are still seeking their first World Series title since 1988.
Ahead you’ll find the full TV schedule for this year’s Series, including game times and channel information, as well as a quick preview of what to watch for.

The Red Sox finished the regular season ranked first in the majors in team batting average (.268), OPS (.792) and runs scored (876), and they’ve continued to light up the scoreboard this postseason with 56 runs in nine games.
While Mookie Betts and J.D. Martinez both turned in MVP-caliber seasons, the lineup is dangerous top-to-bottom, and it’s been guys like Brock Holt (5-for-15, 3 XBH, 6 RBI) and Rafael Devers (7-for-20, 1 HR, 7 RBI) who have come up big in October.
That said, as good as the offense has been, it’s the starting pitching that looks like the biggest X-factor.
