Astros vs Rays, 5:37 PM PDT, TV: TBS
This is a matchup of two guys who were teammates in 2017 and combined for the win in Game Seven of the World Series that year. McCullers hopes he lasts longer than the 2 1/3 innings he did then. He struck out 11 over seven innings in Game Two, but he’s also given up five home runs in his eleven innings this postseason. Morton is 2-0 this postseason and went five shutout innings in Game Two.
Plenty of World Series history occurred on October 17, including the Loma Prieta earthquake which killed 63 people, flattened the Embarcadero Freeway and interrupted the 1989 Series between the As and Giants.
