The Houston Astros and Atlanta Braves will meet in the World Series.

The two teams proved to be the best in the American and National Leagues respectively and because the Astros have the better record (95-67) over the Braves (88-73), they will have the homefield advantage.

Houston has been accustomed to getting to the World Series in recent years while the Braves have been stalled in either the division series or championship series. Atlanta finally got over the hump.
