The World Series is going to a Game 7. There have already been too many grandiose proclamations of “Game 7” being the two greatest words in sports, especially when Wednesday night will give us the World Series’ third Game 7 in the past four years (and four in the past six seasons).
A controversial running interference call in Game 6’s seventh inning, the possibility of MLB implementing electronic strike zones, and two women getting banned for flashing Astros pitcher Gerrit Cole in Game 5 are among several topics Pat Ryan and I discussed on WISE Sports Radio Wednesday:
A do-or-die game between the pitching staffs of the Houston Astros and Washington Nationals could truly provide us with something special. Yes, Houston’s Zack Greinke and Washington’s Max Scherzer (who couldn’t even put on a shirt by himself three days ago) will start the game.
But who else might pitch adds more drama: Patrick Corbin, Gerrit Cole, Anibal Sanchez, Jose Urquidy. Could we even see Game 6’s pitchers — Stephen Strasburg and Justin Verlander — take the mound? Anything is possible when there’s no more baseball season tomorrow.
