For the first time in MLB history, two teams from the same state are meeting in a League Championship Series. The Texas Rangers are off to a great start as they are currently undefeated in the 2023 Postseason! Last night, the Rangers took on the Astros in Houston leaving them blank 2-0 in Game 1 of the LCS. The LCS serves as a semifinal round that is a best-of-seven series where the winners will face off in the World Series. The final four teams competing are the ALCS Texas Rangers v. Houston Astros and the NLCS Arizona Diamondbacks v. Philadelphia Phillies. Sports Illustrated shares this is the first time the Rangers will go to the World Series since they reached the Fall Classic in 2010 and 2011.
