Left Out: Astros 1st WS team minus lefty pitcher since 1903

HOUSTON (AP) — Something was left out when the Houston Astros submitted their World Series roster.

Namely, left-handed pitchers.

For the first time since the very first World Series in 1903, a team has no lefties on its Fall Classic staff.

Instead, Houston has 12 pitchers, all right-handers.

A surprising accomplishment, especially given how many pitchers are on the modern roster.
