Astros’ last chance at 2nd World Series title is in Greinke’s arm
Astros fans, depending on how you see Wednesday night’s Game 7 of the World Series, the team still has a chance to make good on taking it back.
Otherwise, the fact that no home team has won a game in this championship series, as well as the last three World Series Game 7 hosts have lost coming into Houston’s winner-take-all with the Washington Nationals, should not sit well.
Still, the Astros plan to throw everything they have into the final game of the MLB season: Zack Greinke, Gerrit Cole on short rest, every available outfielder they have on their bench, everything.
And they will need everything against Nationals pitcher Max Scherzer, who kept Houston bats sedated in Game 2, a lopsided loss that gave Washington the 2-0 lead in the series.
How will the narrative conclude on the field of Minute Maid Park? The crowning of a first-time champion in the Nationals. Or the solidification of the Astros as a bonified dynasty with more titles to come.
