The Houston Astros and Los Angeles Dodgers begin the 2017 World Series on Tuesday night at Dodger Stadium. Dallas Keuchel will take the mound for the Astros, who are searching for their first-ever World Series title. Clayton Kershaw will pitch for the Dodgers, who are looking for their first championship since 1988. The big news entering Game 1 is the health of Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager, who is in the starting lineup after missing the NLCS.

    Chris Devenski in for the Astros in the bottom of the 8th. Last time he pitched? ALCS Game 4 at Yankee Stadium, which was not fun for him.

  8. Clock Icon2:23 am

    Easy inning for Morrow

    Morrow does his job on the mound as he retires the side in order to set the stage for Kenley Jansen in the ninth inning. A pinch hitter will lead off the bottom of the eighth before Taylor and Turner come to the plate.

    Peacock gets out of jam

    The Dodgers will have Brandon Morrow and Kenley Jansen lined up for the final six outs. They are in a good spot.

  14. Clock Icon1:58 am

    Kershaw dominant through seven

    McCann's flyout to center ends the top of the seventh. Kershaw receives handshakes and hugs in the dugout after he records the third out. It looks like Dave Roberts could be going to his dominant bullpen to close the game.

  30. Clock Icon12:54 am

    Reddick Gets the First Houston Hit

    Easy inning for Keuchel

    Kike Hernandez leads off the bottom of the second with a single, but that's quickly erased by a double play. Keuchel then gets Logan Forsythe to fly out to conclude the second frame.

  34. Clock Icon12:31 am

    Only once in his career had Dallas Keuchel served up a HR on the first pitch of a game. And it’s been a while: Starling Marte on 7/26/12
