ESPN Stats and Information
Both the Dodgers (69-31) and Astros (67-33) have won two-thirds of their first 100 games. Since the World Series was introduced in 1903, this is the eighth time that two teams have won at least 67 of their first 100 games in the same season. Four of those eight happened in the first ten World Series, and this is the first instance since the Yankees and Indians in 1954. In the five previous instances where the teams were in different leagues, they went on to meet in the World Series four times.
