Additionally, while the two teams won’t be playing to sold-out crowds, a small number of fans will be allowed in the stands for each game. There will be about 11,500 tickets sold for each game, which amounts to about 28 percent capacity of the stadium.

Although the team won the first three games of the series, they went on to lose the next three consecutive games to the Astros.

The Rays’ path to victory also included playoff wins against the New York Yankees — who lost in Game 5 of the American League Division Series — and the Toronto Blue Jays, who got swept in the Wild Card round.

Amping up the drama, the Dodgers’ fate was also decided in a must-win Game 7.

The team beat the Atlanta Braves on Sunday 4-3, thanks to a decisive bat from star Cody Bellinger — who ended up dislocating his shoulder while celebrating his home run hit.

While the Dodgers had no trouble securing victories in the first two playoff rounds — sweeping both the Milwaukee Brewers and the San Diego Padres — to beat the Braves, they had to rally back from a 3-1 deficit.
