The World Series matchup is officially set.

The Braves held off the Dodgers after taking a 3-1 lead in the series, closing out Game 6 to take the series 4-2. The Astros came back after falling behind 2-1 against the Red Sox by winning three straight games to close out the ALCS and head to their third World Series in five years.

The World Series was already scheduled to begin on Tuesday, Oct. 26, regardless of the outcome of the ALCS and NLCS, but neither series lasting the full seven games means each team should come into the Fall Classic feeling a bit more well rested. The Braves will have had a full two days off, while Houston will have had three days off.
