Postseason gear will be available at the Astros Center Field Team Store starting Sunday

October 1st, 2023

HOUSTON, Texas – The reigning World Series champion Houston Astros clinched their seventh straight playoff berth and 17**th** in club history following a 1-0 victory at Arizona on Saturday evening.

The Astros have also now made the postseason in seven consecutive seasons (2017-23), extending the longest streak in club history. The Astros have also made the postseason eight of the last nine seasons (since 2015) and join the Dodgers as the only teams in the Majors to qualify for the postseason in each of the last seven years.

The Astros will face the Diamondbacks at Chase Field on Sunday, Oct. 1 at 2:10 p.m. CT, the final game of the regular season, to play for either the AL West division title or a Wild Card spot.

The Astros have won the AL West five times (2017-19, 2021-22), and have also won the NL West twice (1980, 1986) and the NL Central four times (1997-99, 2001). Additionally, Houston has made the postseason as a Wild Card on four occasions (2004-05, 2015, 2020) and also qualified for the postseason in the strike-shortened 1981 season after finishing with the best re­cord in the NL West in the second half of that season.

Astros manager Dusty Baker has guided his club to 13 postseason appearances overall and has led the Astros to four consecutive postseason bids. Baker boasts 51 postseason managerial wins, fourth all-time, including a 28-14 (.667)record in the postseason with the Astros. His .667 postseason win percentage is the best in club history.

WINNING WAYS: The Astros are just the second team in history and only in the American League to advance to six-straight ALCS (2017-2022), a feat that has only been accomplished by one other club in Major League history, the 1991-99 Braves. That Braves team advanced to every LCS played from 1991-99, excluding the 1994 season, which was not played.

The reigning World Series champions, the Astros have advanced to the World Series four of the last six seasons (2017, 2019, 2021 and 2022), winning twice (2017 and 2022).

The Astros 86 postseason games played since 2017 are the most in the Majors and their 53 postseason wins in that span are also the most in MLB.
