The Astros entered this series as overwhelming favorites, but tonight is a bit of a “must win” for them as they already find themselves down 1-0 with the series moving to Washington on Friday. Justin Verlander will be tasked to hold the Nats off, but Verlander has struggled in the Fall Classic with a 5.67 ERA in five career starts.
Yordan Alvarez - who went 2-for-3 with a walk last night, moves up to the sixth spot with Carlos Correa moving down.
Stephen Strasburg goes for the Nats with Juan Soto coming off a huge Game 1 performance. I wonder how old he is.
The game airs on FOX.
