Washington's ace Stephen Strasburg pitched a gem into the ninth inning of Game 6, leading the Nationals to victory, 7-2, over the Houston Astros last night.
Strasburg was on the hill for 8 1/3 innings, fanned seven Astros and allowed just five hits. His dominant performance, combined with timely home runs from stars Anthony Rendon and Juan Soto, means the 2019 MLB season will all come down to tonight's Game 7 in Houston.
Odds of Astros Winning Tonight
The Astros are starting Zack Greinke Wednesday night, and Houston is currently available at -138 to win the World Series, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
Odds of Nationals Winning World Series
Washington, meanwhile, has four-time Cy Young award winner Max Scherzer on the mound, and the Nationals are available at +120 to win Game 7.
Though Scherzer has been banged up in the postseason, he's still performed extremely well, posting a 2.16 ERA to go with a 3-0 record across five appearances in the 2019 MLB Playoffs.
Greinke has been a lot shakier, however, tallying a 5.30 ERA and an 0-2 record in four appearances in the 2019 postseason.
While the Nationals might have an edge on the mound, the Astros' bats have come alive over the past four games, with Houston averaging 5.25 runs per game. Washington, on the other hand, is averaging 2.5 runs during that same span.
While the road team has won all six games so far in the 2019 World Series, anything can happen in Game 7, and this is shaping up to be a classic.
