Get ready to hear the entire city of Toronto collectively start cheering at approximately 4 p.m. ET.

After watching their team start 0-2 in the ALDS, Blue Jays fans have seen a monumental (and literal) upswing over the past few days as the squad battled their way back to force a decisive Game 5 on Wednesday afternoon.

In other words, it’s going to get loud in Toronto.

Marcus Stroman gets the start after a strong performance in Game 2, the 14-inning battle that was as controversial as it was impressive. Stroman gave up just three earned runs over seven innings of work last week, capping off an incredible comeback this season that included an ACL injury, an undergraduate degree and jersey number change.

Cole Hamels will start for the Texas Rangers. He gave up just two earned runs in his Game 2 start, allowing six hits while striking out six and not walking a batter in seven innings.

Not going to be near a TV for this inevitably dramatic baseball matchup? First pitch is slated for 4 p.m. ET and will be broadcast on FS1 and SNET. Here’s how to watch online and on mobile:
