World Series Game 7 Preview: Astros And Dodgers To Fight For The Title

Published

on

A truly incredible Major League Baseball postseason ends tonight, as the Houston Astros and Los Angeles Dodgers fight for a World Series championship in Game 7.

Tonight marks the first Game 7 in the history of Dodger Stadium.

Let’s recap the first six games:
Game 1 in LA: Dodgers win 3-1
Game 2 in LA: Astros win 7-6 in 11
Game 3 in HOU: Astros win 5-3
Game 4 in HOU: Dodgers win 6-2
Game 5 in HOU: Astros win 13-12 in 10
Game 6 in LA: Dodgers win 3-1

It’s all on the line tonight. One winner, one loser, one game- for all the marbles. All hands on deck.

This is what the postseason is all about!

Tonight will feature a rematch of Game 3 starters Lance McCullers Jr. and Yu Darvish, only this time the home-field advantage is reversed. McCullers Jr. was solid for Houston on Friday, allowing three earned runs in 5 1/3 innings. Darvish struggled for LA, getting pounded for six hits and four runs in 1 2/3 innings in the shortest start of his career.

Everyone knows by now the story with Darvish this series, and he’d love to get some revenge tonight with his home crowd cheering him on.

Here’s how both pitchers have fared in the postseason:

If the Astros win tonight, they’ll be the second team in MLB history to win two Game 7s in one year.
