ESPN+ will host Monday’s matchup between the Toronto Blue Jays and the Tampa Bay Rays with first pitch set for 7:10 p.m. ET. The game will take place at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, and will also air on SNET and SNET-1 in the Blue Jays market and on Bally Sports Sun in the Rays market.

If you aren’t around a TV to check out this MLB matchup, you can stream the game via WatchESPN or the ESPN app. But keep in mind — you’ll need a subscription to ESPN+. You can subscribe to ESPN+ on the ESPN website, where you can get a monthly subscription for $5.99, or get the ESPN/Disney/Hulu bundle for $13.99 per month.

The Blue Jays and Rays begin a pretty important three-game series with playoff implications. The Jays have 1.5 games on the Yankees for the second wild card in the AL and are only 1.0 game off the Red Sox. The Rays’ magic number to win the division is 6 entering Monday night. Tampa Bay can seal things up as soon as this week, but more likely early next week.

Things may be tough for the Rays in Game 1 of the series with AL Cy Young favorite Robbie Ray on the hill for Toronto. Ray overtook Yankees ace Gerrit Cole as the favorite following Cole’s implosion on Sunday afternoon against the Cleveland Indians. The Rays brought up pitching prospect Shane Baz to make Monday night’s start.
