Paxton gave up four hits and one earned run in six innings of work, notching nine strikeouts.

Momentum doesn’t mean a thing. The Nats took two on the road against a moribund Astros squad, and then the Astros came alive in D.C., winning all three games there.

The hot bats of the Stros went cold here in Houston again last night, and the 2019 World Series is now tied 3-3.

The road team has won all six games this series, something that has never happened before in the history of baseball. Or basketball...or hockey for that matter.

Key Takeaways for Game 6

  1. Stephen Strasburg has been the best starting pitcher in the World Series. In 14.1 innings he has a 2.51 ERA and a 1.05 WHIP. Although Jose Urquidy and Zack Greinke have lower ERAs in five or less innings pitched, the next best Astros pitcher with equivalent innings is Gerrit Cole, ERA 3.86.

Getting shut down by Strasburg is no disgrace. Statistically he has been about as good as Gerrit Cole, with a 2.22 ERA and 0.96 WHIP for the post season, compared to Cole’s 1.72 and 0.87.

His bold comments following that Game 5 loss might not have come to fruition, but Rask did all he could to give Andersen followed up his 42-save effort in Game 5 with a spectacular 32-save outing in Game 6 . He didn’t need to Both Rask and Andersen ( Game 2) were pulled at one point in the series .

The loss of longtime No. 1 target Rob Gronkowski is having the expected crushing impact on the passing game , and a wild lack of continuity at Now 2-5 following Sunday's loss to the Patriots, a game where Cleveland turned the ball over on three consecutive snaps, it's fair to call this team the

So, the return of the Astros zombie bats last night was no accident. Strasburg does that to a team.

2. Justin Verlander is exhausted. After compiling a 2.58 ERA in 223 regular season innings, he has a 4.33 ERA in the post season with 35 innings pitched. in the World Series this is even worse, 5.73, by far Houston’s worst starting pitcher during the World Series.

Last night, Verlander averaged a respectable 95 MPH on his four-seamer. But his max velocity was only 96.5, when during the season he could routinely reach back for 98 or 99 MPH.

Two hundred and fifty eight innings for a 36 year-old pitcher is too many if you expect something besides mediocrity in the late post-season.

3. The Washington Nationals are an outstanding team, especially well-built to withstand the playoffs. If the Astros lose Game 7 tomorrow, it is to a talented and spirited opponent, and a worthy opponent. Only one team can win the World Series. If the winner turns out to be the Nationals, that is no disgrace for the Astros.

Here are three takeaways from Game 6 Luck was not on their side in Game 6 , as the Blues capitalized on both of their opportunities on the man advantage. The Sharks knew they were in an uphill battle heading into Game 6 with multiple key players injured, and the absence of Joe Pavelski

4. The Zack Greinke trade goes on display today. Obviously, rightly or wrongly, the success of the trade will be judged by whether the Astros win the game started today by Greinke.

His opponent at this time is unknown. Max Scherzer is said to feel better after his neck froze up, but perhaps the third ace on the Nats staff, Patrick Corbin, will start, with Scherzer and Anibal Sanchez lying in wait to close it out if the Nats get a lead.

The Astros have had success against both Corbin and Sanchez, both of whom have a 6.00+ ERA in the World Series.

Game 7 of the World Series is tomorrow at 7:08 CDT at MMP. Can the Astros break the home field curse and take home their second WS trophy in three years?
