The 2019 World Series could open with one of the best postseason pitching matchups in recent memory.
Gerrit Cole has a chance to hand Houston an early advantage through the continuation of his stellar season.
He will likely be matched by Max Scherzer, who has been equally impressive in his four postseason appearances.
A Game 1 pitching duel could be the first of many, with seven quality starters stacked on both rosters.
