From high scoring shootouts to pitching duels and bat-flips to inappropriate gestures, this World Series has had it all. Gestures aside, this World Series is definitely been enjoyable.

Despite the Astros strong starting pitching, the bullpen remains an issue. However, the offense has been so good that staying in games has not been a problem. Tonight will be the determining factor, is that high powered offense good enough to push the Astros to the World Series win, or will they be left in the dust as the Dodgers go on to claim the victory? Of course, it is possible that the Astros bullpen finally locks things down, but all will be revealed when the final out is recorded.

The game starts at 8PM ET/ 7PM CT.
