After falling short in 2019 and 2021, the Houston Astros are back in the World Series and have home-field advantage yet again. They will try to do something tonight that they were unable to do in those two previous Fall Classics: Win Game 1 at Minute Maid Park. Here is the lineup the Astros will roll out against the Philadelphia Phillies. First pitch for Game 1 is scheduled for 8:03 p.m. ET on FOX.

Astros starting lineup, World Series Game 1, October 28

The Astros’ lineup has been generally the same all year long, except for the subtraction of outfielder Michael Brantley due to an injury in the middle of the year. Rookie shortstop Jeremy Pena has been bumped up to the No. 2 spot for the past six weeks and has taken to it quite nicely as he earned ALCS MVP honors against the Yankees. Most of these Astros saw Phillies starting pitcher Aaron Nola for the first time on Oct. 3, and he held them scoreless through 6.2 innings in Houston. Jose Altuve (2-for-5, double) and Yordan Alvarez (1-for-3, two strikeouts) are the only Astros regulars who have a hit against the Phils’ right-hander.
