This year's World Series between the Astros and Dodgers will mark the first time since 1970 that two teams who won over 100 games will go head-to-head for the championship. The AL champion Astros won 101, while the Dodgers finished the regular season with an MLB-best 104 wins.

Both aces will be on the mound tonight, as Clayton Kershaw (18-4, 2.31 ERA) gets the nod for the Dodgers, while Dallas Keuchel (14-5, 2.90 ERA) takes the mound for Houston.
The Dodgers have not been to the World Series since 1988, when they defeated the Oakland Athletics in five games. They come into the series having beaten the defending champion Chicago Cubs in five games in the NLCS.
The Astros, on the other hand, were in the Fall Classic back in 2005, although that's when the team was in the National League. They're fresh off a Game 7 victory against the New York Yankees.
The World Series features a 2-3-2 format, meaning the first two games will be played at Dodgers Stadium, followed by games three and four (and game five, if necessary) at Minute Maid Park. If the series goes to six or seven games, both teams will head back to Los Angeles.
