It all comes down to this! One game, one champion. Tonight, when the Houston Astros take on the Washington Nationals, one team will walk away as the 2019 World Series champions, while the other will have to ponder all winter long how they fell just one game short of a title.
When and where is Game 7?
Game 7 of the 2019 World Series will take place at Minute Maid Park, in Houston, Texas. The twist for the heavy-hitting Astros is they may prefer to play this game in Washington.
The first six games of the World Series have all been won by the road team. Never before has a World Series that went the distance of all seven games has the road team won each contest.
Nationals fans hope this trend continues for just one more game so their team can be crowned champions!
Starting pitchers revealed for Game 7
When teams are in a Game 7, it is an all-out war on the field. It doesn’t matter who pitched yesterday or even two days ago. All players at any position could get the call to step in at any time — especially relief pitchers.
The starting pitchers for tonight’s Game 7 are two of the best in the game.
Washington will send Max Scherzer to the mound, while the Astros will counter with Zack Greinke.
Scherzer has been touched up at times in the postseason, but he still has been tough as nails when he gets into a jam. Mad Max is 3-0 in the 2019 playoffs and has a stout ERA of 2.46.
Greinke, on the other hand, has yet to win in the 2019 postseason. He is 0-2 with an ERA north of 5.00.
