The Houston Astros and Chicago White Sox begin the best-of-five American League Division Series on Thursday with a trip to the ALCS on the line. The series could run through Wednesday if it goes to five games.

The Astros (95-67) won the AL West and are in the postseason for the fifth season in a row, reaching the ALCS the last four years. The White Sox (93-69) won the AL Central for the first time since 2008 and are in the postseason for the second year in a row, snapping a 12-year drought last season.

This series is a new chapter in the long-running rivalry between Tony La Russa and Dusty Baker, currently Major League Baseball's two current oldest managers.
