The Astros are getting some days off before they open the World Series. Houston hosts the Phillies for Game One on Friday night at Minute Maid Park. The Astros advanced to their second straight World Series after sweeping the Yankees 4-0 in the American League Championship Series. It was Houston's fourth AL pennant in the past six years. Philadelphia was the sixth seed in the National League, but eliminated the Cardinals, Braves and Padres to advance. The Phillies haven't been to a World Series since 2009.
