HOUSTON, Texas — HOUSTON (AP) — Though the uniform keeps changing, Atlanta pitcher Charlie Morton is becoming a Fall Classic fixture, starting in the World Series for the third time in five seasons this week.

Houston lefty Framber Valdez is virtually unknown to a national audience, with the 27-year-old set to make his World Series debut when he starts opposite Morton and the Braves in Game 1 on Tuesday night.

The first pitch is scheduled for 7:09 p.m. Tuesday at Minute Maid Park.
