Houston Astros vs Chicago White Sox: Storylines

The Houston Astros enter this game as the reigning American League West champions and to be honest, it wasn't as close as you could tell by the standings. They boast one of the best offenses in the world and are tailor-made for the postseason.

The Chicago White Sox won the American League Central division for the first time in 13 years but they're still far from satisfied. They have enough pitching and firepower to make a deep run in the postseason, although they haven't exactly fared well against the Astros as of late.
