A week ago I think many people were anticipating the Astros attempting to deliver the finishing blow to the Nationals tonight. Two nights ago people wondered if the Nationals might be finishing off the Astros. But the Astros won last night behind a solid, if short, Zack Greinke start and a shutdown bullpen that struck out four and a half as many batters as it allowed hits to.

Tonight the Nationals will send Patrick Corbin to the mound to start the game while the Astros will use rookie swing man Jose Urquidy at the front of what they expect to be a bullpen game before swinging back around to Gerrit Cole in tomorrow’s game.
