The breakdown: The Astros have momentum after Wednesday night's amazing win. They Astros send out McCullers, who had a great start in New York in Game 4 of the ALCS then pitched four dominant innings of relief in Game 7 to clinch the AL pennant. The Astros will face a familiar face as the Dodgers send out Yu Darvish, whom they acquired from the Rangers earlier this year. In Darvish's two starts against the Astros this year as a Ranger he was part of a 7-1 loss where he allowed three runs and also a 6-1 win where he allowed just one. For his career, Darvish is 5-5 with a 3.44 ERA in 14 starts against Houston. A key for the Astros could be George Springer, who can be streaky and appears to be heating up.
