MLB: Houston Astros at Los Angeles Angels Orlando Ramirez-USA TODAY Sports

The Astros clinched home field advantage in the American League with their win last night, and broke a franchise record for most wins in a season with 104. Tonight they can also win home field advantage through the World Series with another win.

The Angels have nothing to play for, and are missing their two stars, Mike Trout and Shohei Ohtani. They bring Jose Suarez to pitch against Justin Verlander. Suarez has a 7.43 ERA in 14 starts this season.
