World Series storylines to keep an eye on

Here are the storylines to track entering the World Series. Nationals' long layoff After sweeping the Cardinals, the Nats will have had a full week of rest between Game 4 of the NLCS and Game 1 of the World Series. While the rest could be good for players on the mend, like Victor Robles, the worry is that Washington will lose momentum after such a long layoff. Meanwhile, the Astros enjoyed only two days of rest between Game 6 of the ALCS and the World Series.

Mad Max delivers for World Series champion Nats without win .
HOUSTON (AP) — Max Scherzer never had a clean inning in Game 7 of the World Series for the Washington Nationals. He finished with more walks than strikeouts and walked off the mound trailing. Yet, Mad Max delivered in the clutch for the Nationals even without getting the win. Boosted by a cortisone injection and the adrenaline of trying to get his first World Series ring, Scherzer labored through five innings while throwing 103 pitches. Even though the 35-year-old three-time Cy Young winner allowed seven hits and walked four, he gave up only two runs in a championship-worthy effort.
