Phillies, on verge of playoffs, open series with Astros

The path to snapping the longest championship drought in American sports in 1980 required the Philadelphia Phillies to win in Houston.

Forty-two years later, the Phillies are heading to Houston needing just one win to end a much smaller -- but still plenty lengthy -- dry spell.

The Phillies will look to clinch the last remaining National League wild-card spot Monday night when they visit the Houston Astros in the opener of a three-game series.
