Houston Astros vs Washington Nationals
Tuesday, October 29 – 20:07 EST – Minute Maid Park
Expected Pitchers: Justin Verlander (22-9, ERA: 2.81) vs Stephen Strasburg (22-6, ERA: 3.15)
The Houston Astros are on the brink of clinching their second World Series title in three years. The home team did not start the series in the way they were hoping for. After losing both home games at the start of the series, many thought that their season would be over. However, the Astros managed to win three consecutive games on the road. This now puts them in a position where their destiny is once again in their hands. Houston will send Justin Verlander to the mound on Tuesday. The 36 year old has been shaky in the postseason as he posted a 1-3 record with an ERA of 4.15 so far. In his last start, he allowed four runs and seven hits in six innings pitched against the Nationals.
On the other hand, the Washington Nationals will be disappointed with their home performances. They were in a favourable position after grabbing a 2-0 lead on the road. However, they did not manage to take advantage of their home field and now face a do or die situation on Tuesday. With that being said, the Nationals conceded 19 runs in that three game home stand while only scoring three. Washington will send Stephen Strasburg to the mound tonight. The 31 year old pitcher has been excellent in the postseason for the Nationals. He posted a 4-0 record with an ERA of 1.93. In his last start, he allowed two runs and seven hits in six innings pitched against the Astros. The season is on the line for the Washington Nationals. Will they have what it takes to extend the series to one more game?
