Share

For just the third time in Series history, the visiting team has won the first five games.

Five days after losing to Washington, he'll get another shot at them. Scherzer could return to start Game 7, if there is one, against Zack Greinke. After the travel day, Houston had a capital time in Washington, outscoring the Nats 19-3.

"I'm as disappointed as I possibly can be not to be able to pitch tonight" Scherzer told reporters before the game.

Max Scherzer walked stiffly into the interview room, a bandage on the back of the Washington star pitcher's neck telegraphing trouble.

Wearing a dark suit and a tie, Trump arrived at Nationals Park just before the first pitch of the Houston Astros-Washington Nationals matchup.

Trump was attending the game with First Lady Melania Trump, five wounded veterans along with Republican senators, Lindsey Graham of SC and Florida's Marco Rubio. Strasburg led the NL with 18 victories this season. Home clubs then went 17-13 in the postseason through the League Championship Series. "I've dealt with them in the past different times where I just need little adjustments here and there".

Game 5 was set up to be a highly anticipated rematch between Scherzer and Cole, who both started Game 1, a 5-4 Nationals win. The sighting ignited a stirring ovation from the crowd still filing in ahead of the night's first pitch. "I've pitched through so much crap in my career that (anything) would be easy to pitch through at this point".

Washington and Houston looked like two different teams after the change of ballparks.

According to Scherzer, the symptoms were bad enough that he couldn't do anything "menial" when he woke this morning.

After going 7 for 21 with runners in scoring position on the road, the Nationals were 1 for 21 at home.

Nationals manager Dave Martinez said: "He's coming to the game". "The Nats came out hot. We've got Joe on the mound and we'll get them'".

The Los Angeles Dodgers are the last team to win a World Series game at home, defeating the Boston Red Sox after 18 gruelling innings in Game 3 previous year. You win that first win. "I didn't realize that was how we got so many strikeouts". The Nationals dugout thought it was a ball. "Definitely noticed the kind of roar, I guess, as I went out on the field, which is pretty cool, " Ross said.

The Nationals, too, were upset in the course of the game.

"We've been communicating back and forth throughout the whole series on how we were going to make an adjustment to what we were seeing and how we were going to attack".

"So we just take the mentality like we took during the regular season, we're just going to kind of put one foot in front of the next, respond to the challenges that come our way and you shower off the mistakes, and celebrate the awesome plays". Corbin himself has been working out of the bullpen during this postseason, he made an appearance back in Game 1, and there's a very real possibility that he won't be able to give his team more than a handful of effective innings.
