When: 7:20 p.m.

Where: Minute Maid Park.

TV: Fox Sports.

Streaming: Fox Sports Go.

Pitching matchup: Dallas Keuchel vs. Clayton Kershaw.

Series: Tied 2-2.

The breakdown:  First pitch of Game 5 is scheduled for 7:20 PM from Minute Maid Park. The pitching matchup will be a rematch of Game 1 which put Dallas Keuchel for the Astros against Clayton Kershaw for the Dodgers. Kershaw won the battle in Game 1, going seven innings of three-hit, one run baseball in the Dodgers' win while Keuchel allowed three runs over six and two-thirds. Kershaw is one of the best pitchers in baseball, period, but Keuchel is historically dominant at home. The Astros will look to regain the series lead with a win in the last home game and head to Los Angeles in need of one more to win the series..
