The Astros will send Dallas Keuchel (2-1, 2.60 ERA) to the mound. He lasted just 4.2 innings in his last start, which was a 5-0 road loss to the New York Yankees in Game 6 of the ALCS. Keuchel allowed four runs on seven hits with eight strikeouts and a walk. The 2015 AL Cy Young winner has never faced the Dodgers before.

The Dodgers counter with Clayton Kershaw (2-0, 3.63 ERA), who got the win in his last start – an 11-1 rout of the Chicago Cubs on the road, which closed out the NLCS. Over six innings, Kershaw gave up a run on three hits with five strikeouts and a walk. The three-time NL Cy Young winner (and 2014 MVP) has faced the Astros eight times, going 3-2 with a 2.38 ERA.

The two teams last met in August 2015, with the Astros scoring a three-game sweep at home. Overall, the two have split their last 10 meetings. Seven games fell under the posted total.
