Today’s Giants-Phillies game will not be televised, unlike virtually every other sports event and everything else!
Instead, it will only air live in on Facebook. The finale to the four-game series at Citizens Bank Park is one of 25 streaming broadcasts scheduled for 2018 as part of MLB’s partnership with Facebook.
Fans can catch the 1 p.m. ET contest by logging on to Facebook’s MLB Live page from their phones, tablets, smart TVs or other streaming devices. MLB Network will produce the game, with play-by-play announcer Scott Braun, analysts Javier Lopez and Ben Davis and in-game reporter Alexa Datt.

4. Or stream the game from your phone to a TV on the same WiFi network by tapping the TV icon.
