Game Three, 2019 World Series

Astros at Nationals, 5:07 PM PDT, TV: Fox

The Astros ask RHP Zack Greinke to win what really can be called a must-win game for them. He’s made three starts this postseason; the first was horrid but the last two were acceptable (3.48 ERA in 10 1/3 innings). The Nationals counter with RHP Aníbal Sánchez, who’s got an 0.71 ERA in 12 2/3 innings this postseason.

  1. It was an unusual night at the park. Incredible crowd energy (well, it was first WS game in DC in 86 years). But as the ‘Stros methodically chipped away and the hours passed you could see the energy slip away. By the ninth, even with the top of the order coming up, the crowd was sitting and relatively quiet as if they thought the loss was inevitable.

    Got another invite for tonight, but I am traveling down to Mexico and will likely only catch the tail end of teh game upon arrival.

  2. I still haven’t seen a single pitch live but, looking in on Gameday from time to time, I notice that Fox’s “highlights” are so brief you barely get to see anything.

    • Ihope you are in those left field seats so you can get more chances to catch home run balls, albeit Nat’s home runs.

      • Okay, WBB. If we make it again next year, you are coming here to Dodger Stadium and going with me. Deal? I think it’s the missing magic sauce!
