2019 MLB World Series Game 6: Can Strasburg Even the Series?

2019 MLB World Series Game 6: Can Strasburg Even the Series?
This has been a frustrating World Series for the fans. The fans that went to the local ballpark that is. The reason? Their teams have been getting wins on the road and losing at home!
First, the Nationals took games 1 and 2 at Houston. Then was the turn of the Astros to do what most people thought it was impossible by winning three straight at Washington. They are now one victory away from getting the Commissioner’s Trophy for the second time in the past three seasons.
So, after being close to pulling off a historic upset, now things are genuinely uphill for Washington. They need to win two games in a row in Houston. Two games versus Cy Young winners Zack Greinke and Justin Verlander. No easy task at all indeed.

Max Scherzer Is Out for Game 6, But Strasburg Is Ready
After suffering neck spasms, Max Scherzer was scratched from his start in Game 5 of the World Series. This injury came in the worst possible of times, precisely when the Nats needed Scherzer to play and to play at his best. Sherzer, who has proved time and time again that he can play even when going through some mild pain, was hurting too much to perform.
Joe Ross took over for him at Game 5, and even though he was not terrible, he did allow a pair of two-run home runs. Ross did not challenge Astros starter Gerrit Cole appropriately, the way Scherzer might have done.
What’s worst is that Scherzer’s injury not only forced Nats manager Dave Martinez to force Ross into a spot start. But he was also forced to tweak his entire rotation for the rest of the series.
So, who’s taking over Scherzer at Game 6? The answer: Stephen Strasburg. He must pitch well during the sixth game of this series or everything will be over for Washington, period. The positive note is that Strasburg already outpitched Justin Verlander during this series, specifically at Game 2. To give Nats fans new hope, Washington hasn’t lost a postseason match in which Strasburg has appeared since Game 1 of the 2017 NLDS.
