The 2019 World Series gets underway tonight! The Houston Astros will play host to the Washington Nationals in game one of the Fall Classic. Gerrit Cole will serve as the starting pitcher for the Astros, while Max Scherzer will head to the mound for the Nationals. First pitch is set for 8:08 pm at Minute Maid Park in Houston, Texas.

The Nationals advanced to their first World Series in franchise history with a four-game sweep of the St. Louis Cardinals last week in the National League Championship Series. The Astros clinched the American League pennant by taking four of six from the New York Yankees.
