The MLB season is guaranteed to end Wednesday night when the Los Angeles Dodgers host the Houston Astros in Game 7 of the 2017 World Series. L.A. forced the deciding game with a victory in Game 6 Tuesday night, and the Game 7 winner will deliver a championship to a franchise that has been desperately seeking one.

Los Angeles is one of the most-storied organizations in all of baseball, but it’s been a long time since the Dodgers had any real playoff success. Houston has only won a handful of postseason series since they came into the league, making just one other appearance in the Fall Classic.

Game 7 promises to be the most-watched baseball game this year. Forty million viewers tuned in last year to see the Chicago Cubs beat the Cleveland Indians in Game 6 of the 2016 World Series. That game was decided in extra innings, breaking Chicago’s 108-year championship drought.

With games going to extra innings and a couple of historic comebacks, this year’s World Series has been one of the most entertaining of all time. Will Game 7 live up to the rest of the series?
