The Los Angeles Dodgers overcame a 3-1 deficit in the National League Championship Series, and they’ll meet the Tampa Bay Rays in the 2020 World Series, with all games at Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas.

Because they held the better record during the regular season, the Dodgers will be the home team for Games 1, 2, 5, and 7, just as they would be in a normal World Series where the games would be played in Chavez Ravine. The Rays will get the last at-bat in Games 3, 4, and 5.

Because both teams needed a Game 7 to advance, the status of the rotation and bullpen is a bit of a question. Here is the schedule of games, and notice it also includes the travel days the World Series always has, just without either team actually getting on an airplane. All games will be broadcast on Fox, with the Fox Sports Go app having streaming available.

Game 1: Tuesday, Oct. 20, 8:09 p.m. ET
Game 2: Wednesday, Oct. 21, 8:08 p.m. ET
Game 3: Friday, Oct. 23, 8:08 p.m. ET
Game 4: Saturday, Oct. 24, 8:08 p.m. ET
Game 5*: Sunday, Oct. 25 8:08 p.m. ET
Game 6*: Tuesday, Oct. 27 8:08 p.m. ET
Game 7*: Wednesday, Oct. 28 8:09 p.m. ET
