What looked like a certain World Series championship for the Washington Nationals is now in danger of slipping away with the Houston Astros winning Games 3, 4, and 5 in Washington D.C. over the weekend.
We’re going back to Houston with the Astros holding a 3-2 series lead and the upper hand. The pressure is now on the Nationals to win Tuesday’s Game 6 and push the series to a Game 7. But has the Nats’ magic run out? And how did this series turn so dramatically? That’s what Pat Ryan and I discussed on WISE Sports Radio Monday, along with front office changes in Pittsburgh and Boston.
Houston winning the World Series in six games would make me look smart, since that was my pick before the series began. But a Game 7 would be so exciting, especially with all of the pitching that the Astros and Nats could throw on the mound in a do-or-die scenario. And I’d like to see Max Scherzer pitch one more time to give the Nationals a shot at glory.
