Astros force Game 7 against the Yankees with 7-1 win

The 2017 World Series begins Tuesday in Dodger Stadium with Game 1 at 8:07 p.m. ET. "After owning up to 'screwing up" the next day, however, the players rallied around their manager and overcame an 0-2 deficit to knock out the Indians and reach the ALCS, where they fell behind by two games again before forcing Game 7.

The Houston Astros are in the World Series for just the second time in team history after defeating the New York Yankees 4-0 Saturday night in the seventh and deciding game of the American League Championship Series.

"Our goal has been to win the World Series, " Girardi said, not ready to reflect on the merits of 2017 to-date.

So the question gets flipped to one usually not contemplated in the sports world when it comes to managers and head coaches: Should Girardi agree to return after 10 years on the job?

Houston improved to 6-0 at Minute Maid Park in these playoffs and became the fifth team in major league history to win a seven-game postseason series by winning all four of their home games. But Bird was erased on a bang-bang play as third baseman Alex Bregman scooped up a hot smash from Todd Frazier and threw to McCann for the out.

This is one hot World Series - the Houston Astros, fresh off a Game 7 victory over the Yankees, taking on the narrowly favored Los Angeles Dodgers, well rested after a postseason romp. This is the Astros' first time in this situation since Oct. 21, 2004. Lance I already know on three days' rest is plenty rested and will be available. Severino got into trouble against the bottom half of the Astros order in the fifth. Tuesday's high is expected to top out at 102. Judge's third homer of this series - he hit two in New York - was a soaring shot off reliever Brad Peacock in the eighth projected to 425 feet by Statcast.

This has been a banner postseason for home field advantage, with the Astros and Dodgers leading the way. McCullers Sr. was 26 and had pitched 301 games for San Diego, the Yankees and Detroit. They want to write their own Hollywood script but the Astros hopefully will have something to say about that. Verlander has thrown 16 scoreless innings and won twice against the Yankees in the ALCS.

Overall, the Cubs need to take this season as a learning experience and use that bad taste to fuel them heading into 2018. Sabathia is currently the pitcher of record on the losing side. The first-pitch temperature for that showdown in the desert was 94 degrees. He was traded from the Rangers to Los Angeles for three prospects at the trade deadline. Signed to a minor league deal before the season, Morrow held opposing batters to just.194/.241/.213 this season. "But (Saturday night), I had to do what I had to do".

Both franchises have endured lengthy droughts in terms of reaching the World Series, creating a much-welcome fresh feel for the best-of-seven clash. The ball clearly hit off Castro's arm. There will be fingernail biting, there will be hands covering eyes and yes, chances are tears will be shed. We see is during the regular season and the 162 game grind but in October the chess match goes to a higher level.

"It's Game 7, so I can sort of play it cool and tell you we'll be careful and see what happens", Hinch said. Dallas has let me know he's going to be available. The only time they made it this far was 2005, when a club that included Jeff Bagwell, Craig Biggio, Roger Clemens and Andy Pettitte got swept by the White Sox.
