It’s just like it never went away, isn’t it? Regular season MLB baseball is finally back and so are last year’s World Series winners the Boston Red Sox. They’re in Oakland for a four match series and we’ll tell you the best way to get a Red Sox vs Athletics MLB live stream today.
Red Sox vs A’s MLB 2019 – when and where?
The Boston Red Sox and Oakland A’s are doing battle in a four-match series this week. The action of game two starts at 8.07pm local time – so that’s just after 11pm ET in Massachusetts – on Tuesday, April 3.
The games take place at the Oakland–Alameda County Coliseum – a roofless stadium shared by the Oakland Raiders NFL franchise that can hold just over 46,000 baseball fans.
Without wanting to get too ahead of ourselves, the Boston Red Sox may just be suffering a bit of a World Series hangover with their 2019 MLB season getting off to a very slow start. Following a home series defeat against the Seattle Mariners to start the campaign, they were heavily thrashed 7-0 by the A’s yesterday. But their 6 feet 6 inch talismanic pitcher Chris Sale is back on the mound for this one, so that could see Boston’s fortunes transform.
The A’s of Oakland had a surprisingly strong 2018, making it to the American League Wild Card game where they were vanquished by the New York Yankees. There are a lot of hopes resting on third baseman Matt Chapman’s shoulders this year, and he delivered with a homer yesterday to match those from teammates Marcus Semien, Stephen Piscotty and designated hitter Khris Davis.
Keep reading to see the best ways to get a Red Sox vs Athletics live stream. As you’ll see, it’s available via the ESPN+ subscription service (which comes with a 7-day free trial if you haven’t tried it before). And we’ll also tell you how to catch it even if you’re not in the US this weekend.
How to watch Red Sox vs Athletics in the US for FREE
Subscription service ESPN+ has snagged the coverage of the game 2 clash between the Boston Red Sox vs Oakland A’s. The broadcasting giant’s online subscription platform only launched in 2018, but has already made waves by hosting big-ticket tennis, soccer, UFC and boxing events.
It costs $4.99 per month – so not huge sums, and less than streaming services like Netflix (and a lot less than cable). That lets you watch online, but also via its mobile app and TV streamer apps on the likes of Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Roku, PS4 and Xbox.
But the best news is that you can grab a seven-day FREE trial. So if you haven’t used ESPN+ before, you can sign up for that and get a taster of its baseball coverage without paying a thing. If you do decide to take a full sub, ESPN+ is promising more than 180 MLB regular season games in 2019.
