The 2017 World Series between the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Houston Astros starts Tuesday night in Los Angeles, starting off a best-of-seven series between the two teams that have proved themselves to be the best in baseball since the season began way back in April. This will be the first time since 1970 that the World Series will see two teams that won over 100 games each square off. The Dodgers amassed a 104-win regular season while the Astros won 101. It is the first time since 1988 that the Dodgers have been in the Fall Classic, while the Astros return for the first time since 2005 when they were then in the National League.
A combined 205 regular-season wins, six All-Stars each, the top run-scoring team (Houston) and the squad with the league’s second-best team ERA (Los Angeles), there’s simply no shortage of star power and few weaknesses in this World Series. The Dodgers—a powerhouse for several years now thanks to a near-limitless reserve of cash and excellent player development—are in the World Series for the first time since 1988, looking to add a seventh title to their storied franchise history.
While the network execs didn’t get the “dream match-up” between the Los Angeles Dodgers and the New York Yankees, they’re bound to be more than happy with the Houston Astros and their young talent, instead. Major League Baseball has released the schedule and broadcast times for the 113th World Series. This will be the 20th year that FOX will have exclusive television coverage. This is one Fall Classic that has a great chance to live up to its name. The Houston Astros will play the Los Angeles Dodgers — the first showdown of 100-win teams since the Baltimore Orioles and Cincinnati Reds met in 1970. The Astros were born in 1962 and have never won a World Series, so as recovery efforts in Houston continue after the devastation of Hurricane Harvey, you know what this would mean to the city.
The Los Angeles Dodgers and the Houston Astros will meet in the 2017 World Series. It is the 113th edition of the Fall Classic and the second time these two teams meet in the postseason. The last time was in the 1981 NL Divisional Series. L.A. won that best-of-five series 3-2. The Astros didn’t move to the American League until 2013.
The Dodgers punched their tickets on Thursday after completing a Gentlemen’s Sweep over the reigning champion Chicago Cubs. It is the first time the Dodgers are in the World Series since 1988. They’ve won the pennant 22 times, with six titles. The Astros have won the pennant twice, including once in the National League back in 2005 before they moved to the American League.
