Dodgers, Astros meet for winner-take-all Game 7 in World Series

The Los Angeles Dodgers and the Houston Astros will meet for the final winner-take-all game of the 2017 World Series on Wednesday night. The Dodgers are starting pitcher Yu Darvish and the Astros will put Lance McCullers Jr. on the mound, but anything can happen in a Game 7: "I can go 27 innings," Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw joked before the game. "Whatever they need."

The historic series has seen a record 24 home runs in six games, and Wednesday night will mark the first World Series Game 7 in the history of Dodger Stadium. "You've got the two best teams in baseball going head to head," Dodgers manager Dave Roberts told ESPN. "Like we've talked about from the beginning, these two teams mirror one another." The first pitch from Los Angeles is at 8:20 p.m. ET on Fox.
