ESPN will host a national broadcast of Wednesday’s matchup between the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Chicago Cubs with first pitch set for 7:30 p.m. ET. The game will take place at Wrigley Field in Chicago, and will air locally on SportsNet LA in the Dodgers market and on Marquee Sports Network in the Cubs market. Walker Buehler and Adbert Alzolay will start for the Dodgers and Cubs, respectively.

If you aren’t around a TV to check out this primetime MLB matchup, you can stream the game via WatchESPN or the ESPN app. But keep in mind that you need a cable-login subscription. If you don’t have a cable login to access ESPN for a live stream, you can get a free trial from YouTube TV, Hulu with Live TV, AT&T TV Now, FuboTV, or Sling TV to stream the game.

The Cubs swept both games of the Tuesday doubleheader between these two teams and looks to complete the sweep on Wednesday. The Cubs are tied for third in the NL Central, 3.5 games back of the Cardinals. The Dodgers are tied for second in the NL West, 1.5 games back of the Giants.

The Dodgers are installed as a -175 favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook, while the Cubs are a +148 underdog.
