The Texas Rangers and Arizona Diamondbacks won their respective pennants, creating one of the most unlikely World Series matchups in recent memory. Both teams fell behind 3-2 before coming through with consecutive road victories to eliminate last season’s World Series teams, the Houston Astros and Philadelphia Phillies.
Texas is chasing its first ever World Series title 12 years after coming within a strike of championship glory. Arizona is in the World Series for the first time since 2001, when it earned its first and only title.
