World Series title on the line tonight in Houston

By  | 

The World Series will be decided Wednesday night in Houston.

The Washington Nationals forced a Game 7 with a 7-2 win over the Astros Tuesday night, in the first World Series in which road teams have won six games. Houston will try to end that streak. The Astros won the last time there was a Game 7 of the World Series, when they beat the Dodgers in Los Angeles in 2017.

Max Scherzer is set to start Game 7 for Washington after being scratched from Game 5 because of nerve irritation near his neck. He says he’s ready to go after a cortisone shot, heat applications and a couple of chiropractic treatments “freed up” his neck.

Zack Greinke will start for the Astros.
