The Astros made it for the second time in three years, and for only the third time in their history. The World Series, that is.
They beat the Evil Empire in the ALCS, thanks to great pitching and walk-off homers by Carlos Correa and Jose Altuve in Games 2 and 6, respectively. Thus, they have earned the right to take on the NL champions, the Washington Nationals, for all the glory.
Let’s get to know our worthy opponents, position by position, and see how they stack up statistically to our Stros.
The Astros won the AL West with a record of 107-55, the best record in baseball.
