The first leg of the World Series, technically, was an even split. Both the Texas Rangers and Arizona Diamondbacks won a game in Dallas.
But even a casual fan could tell you the Diamondbacks were the stronger team in the early part of the Series. Now Arizona has home field advantage and the Rangers are going to have to step up if they want to cash in on their dreams of winning their first World Series.

Antennas usually ranges between $10 and $20. To ensure you’re getting the most reliable signal, get a good HD antenna and test it in multiple locations in your home.
