Dodgers Beat Astros in Sweltering World Series Opener
The heat is on. Los Angeles is off to a scorching start with a 3-1 home field win against Houston, thanks to Clayton Kershaw, who struck out 11 in seven innings and held the Astros to three hits. It was also the warmest ever start to an MLB postseason game, with temperatures spiking to 103 degrees. Justin Verlander and Rich Hill are expected to start tomorrow’s Game 2, as the Dodgers hope to win their first World Series since 1988 — and Houston battles for its first ever title.
