Despite how you may feel about the Astros, it is hard to not be impressed by their postseason.
Their pitching has been the best in baseball, and timely hits have helped them remain perfect.
Now as they get set for the World Series, Houston has a chance to be the first team this era with a perfect postseason record.
World Series Preview
Though it will not be easy as they take on a Phillies team that has been great all playoffs.
Nola dominated the Astros at the end of the regular season.
He threw 6.2 innings, giving up only two hits, and recording nine strikeouts.
Also, both teams have two of the best lineups in baseball.
The Phillies are being led by Bryce Harper, who has been the best hitter in the playoffs (.419 batting average).
Funny enough, the last time the Astros lost a game was against the Phillies during the last series of the regular season.
Two teams that had different paths to the postseason will now face in the Fall Classic with a World Series title on the line.
