The 2023 MLB World Series won't be anything less than the ultimate in sports entertainment. With both teams surprising fans to even be here, there will be much more magic in store on both sides in this best-of-seven series.
Game 1 saw both teams firing hard out of the gate, with some early runs put up by Texas to keep the home fans fired up. It wasn't long before the Diamondbacks pulled ahead, however, in what looked certain to be an early victory for Arizona, only to have the Rangers power back late in the game to take the win in extra innings.
Not wanting to drop two games early in the series, the Diamondbacks powered back in game 2 and asserted their authority with a 9-1 victory that puts things back to even, essentially now making this a best-of-five series as the series heads to Arizona Monday night for game 3.
However Rangers vs Diamondbacks plays out, this is every inch a victory for the Major League Baseball underclass, and you can follow it all by watching 2023 MLB World Series live streams. We'll show you how to do that below, wherever you are in the world.

For the first time in over two decades, a World Series game is set to be played in the desert.
The Diamondbacks and the Rangers will meet for Game 3 of the Fall Classic on Monday. The primetime contest will break a deadlock, as Texas claimed the opener in walk-off fashion before Arizona bounced back with an eight-run win.
The visitors will give the ball to Max Scherzer, who allowed a combined seven runs across 6 2/3 innings in his first two starts of the postseason. The D-Backs will counter with Brandon Pfaadt, who only allowed five earned runs over 16 2/3 innings this October.
Anyone who thought the 2023 World Series would be boring are likely eating some crow through the first two games of the Fall Classic.
The Rangers rallied back from down two in the bottom of the ninth of Game 1, and wound up winning the game in extra innings on a walk-off homer from Adolis Garcia. The next game, the Diamondbacks received a stellar outing from Merrill Kelly and the Arizona bats roared to life as Arizona evened the series at a game each.
The series gets all the more interesting on Monday. The Rangers will start three-time Cy Young winner Max Scherzer against breakout rookie Brandon Pfaadt with both teams looking to claim the series lead.
Scherzer missed most of the final month of the regular season with a shoulder injury, but returned to pitch twice against the Astros in the ALCS. His two outings were largely disappointing, however, as he gave up seven runs across 6.2 innings (9.45 ERA) with six strikeouts, three walks, two homers and nine hits.
Pfaadt had a rough regular season, posting a 5.72 ERA in 19 outings in his first taste of MLB action. But he has turned it on the playoffs, particularly in the NLCS. He has a 2.70 ERA in four playoff starts, but had a 1.86 ERA in two NLCS outings spanning 9.2 innings. He fanned 16, walked only two and gave up just one home run in six hits.
Max Scherzer is set to start Game 3 of the World Series for Texas against Arizona. The Rangers will be the third team the three-time Cy Young Award winner has pitched for in a Fall Classic.
Scherzer had missed more than a month because of a muscle strain in his shoulder before starting twice in the AL Championship Series against the Houston Astros. He pitched in the pennant-clinching Game 7last Monday, exiting with the lead after allowing two runs on 44 pitches over 2 2/3 innings.
Game 3 of the ALCS was his first start since Sept. 12, and the 39-year-old right-hander allowed five runs over four innings. The trade-deadline acquisition from the New York Mets struck out the last two batters he faced in that 63-pitch outing.
The World Series is tied a game apiece after the Diamondbacks won 9-1 in Game 2 on Saturday night. Texas manager Bruce Bochy said Scherzer is stretched out to give the Rangers what they need Monday night when the World Series switches to Arizona.
