The powerhouse Houston Astros are going up against the surprising Washington Nationals in the 2019 World Series Live. This year’s Fall Classic kicks off Tuesday night in Houston and could run through a potential Game 7 on Wednesday, Oct. 30. The Astros, who won the ALCS in six games over the Yankees, are looking for their second World Series championship in three seasons. Meanwhile, the Nationals are playing in their first World Series in franchise history.
Starting pitching will be a major storyline throughout this matchup. The teams both tout incredible top-of-the-rotation trios that have helped them reach this point. The Astros have the top two AL Cy Young candidates in Gerrit Cole and Justin Verlander and added veteran righty Zack Greinke at the trade deadline.
The Nationals have received excellent starting pitching throughout the postseason, led by Max Scherzer, Stephen Strasburg and Patrick Corbin. Washington’s No. 4 starter, Anibal Sanchez, also has been sharp in the playoffs and nearly no-hit the Cardinals during the NLCS.
Washington heads into the Fall Classic as the better-rested team. The Nationals swept the Cardinals in the NLCS and haven’t played a game since Tuesday. The Astros needed six games to close out the Yankees in the ALCS and won the series on Jose Altuve’s pennant-winning walk-off homer Saturday night.
The series will start in Houston as the Astros have home-field advantage due to their 107-55 regular season record. Nationals Park will host its first ever World Series contest with Friday’s Game 3.
