The Texas Rangers just keep breaking (and setting!) records their Cinderella playoff run for 2023. After last night's 11-7 win in Arizona, they've now won 10 road playoff games, an MLB record. Will they go all the way?

Every Rangers vs Diamondbacks game is live on Fox in the U.S., TNT Sports in the U.K., and Kayo Sports in Australia. Don't worry if you're away — you can watch the 2023 MLB World Series from anywhere with a VPN.

Diamondbacks fans got a rude awakening last night as they cycled through far too many pitchers early on just to earn their first eight outs. The Rangers scored 10 runs before the 4th inning was out, pushing them far ahead of the dejected Arizona Diamondbacks.

With the wind mostly out of their sails, Arizona did start to piece things together late in the game in what seemed like it might turn out to be another one for the history books. After scrounging up 7 runs to claw their way back into things, it just wasn't enough as the Rangers tacked on one for good measure, locking down an 11-7 game 4 victory and putting themselves within arms reach of a championship. 

Will Wednesday night be the decider for Texas or will Arizona show what got them here in the first place?

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.

How to watch 2023 MLB World Series live streams from anywhere

A VPN, or virtual private network, makes it look as if you're surfing the web from your home country, rather than the one you're in. That means you can access your usual streaming services, from anywhere on Earth. Or anywhere that has an internet connection, at least.

VPNs are totally legal, inexpensive and easy to use. We've tested lots of the best VPN services and our favorite is ExpressVPN. It's fast, works on loads of devices, and even offers a 30-day money-back guarantee.


Safety, speed, and simplicity combine to make ExpressVPN our favorite VPN service. It's also compatible with loads of devices and there's a 30-day money-back guarantee if you want to try it out.

Using a VPN is incredibly simple.

1. Install the VPN of your choice. As we've said, ExpressVPN is our favorite.

2. Choose the location you wish to connect to in the VPN app. For instance if you're in the U.S. but want to view an Australian service, such as Kayo Sports, you'd select Australia from the list.

3. Sit back and enjoy the action and watch the MLB World Series live stream.
