The 2017 World Series between the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Houston Astros starts Tuesday night in Los Angeles, starting off a best-of-seven series between the two teams that have proved themselves to be the best in baseball since the season began way back in April.
A combined 205 regular-season wins, six All-Stars each, the top run-scoring team (Houston) and the squad with the league’s second-best team ERA (Los Angeles), there’s simply no shortage of star power and few weaknesses in this World Series.
The Dodgers—a powerhouse for several years now thanks to a near-limitless reserve of cash and excellent player development—are in the World Series for the first time since 1988, looking to add a seventh title to their storied franchise history.
The Astros, just four years removed from a string of 100-loss seasons, are looking to capture their first-ever World Series crown. The last time Houston reached the World Series was back in 2005, when they were in the National League (the team switched to the American League in 2013).
Here’s the complete schedule for the World Series so you don’t miss a minute of action. All games will be televised on Fox. Live streaming is available at Fox Sports Go.

After stumbling to the finish line at the end of the regular season, the Dodgers were able to recalibrate and get back to world-beating form in the postseason. They dusted off the division-rival Arizona Diamondbacks in three games and then soundly beat the defending-champion Chicago Cubs in five games.
The team has simply been all-around excellent. At the plate, Chris Taylor, Justin Turner and Yasiel Puig have provided much of the offensive spark. Turner has three home runs and 12 RBI this postseason, including a walk-off blast in Game 2 of the NLCS. Taylor was named co-MVP of the National League Championship Series with Turner and has drawn seven walks in the playoffs to supplement his .281 average.
