The two teams did not meet in interleague play during the regular season. The Dodgers held a 91—36 record through August Entering the World Series, the Dodgers bullpen had thrown 23 consecutive scoreless innings, a postseason record for a bullpen.

With a —61 regular season record, the team won its first American League West title, and their first division title since The city of Houston in August suffered record flooding from Hurricane Harvey.

After Game 4, both teams' pitching coaches , Rick Honeycutt for the Dodgers and Brent Strom for the Astros, commented on how the baseball being used for the World Series is slicker than the baseball used during the regular season.

Pitchers on both teams noted that this difference has made it more difficult for them to throw their sliders. Kershaw and Keuchel started Game 5, in a rematch of the opening game of the series.

Subsequently, Springer walked on five pitches to move McCann to second base. McCann was then replaced by pinch runner Derek Fisher.
