The Washington Nationals Won Them Both In Houston

October 24, 2019

The Washington Nationals took a two games to none World Series lead with a second straight win in Houston.They routed the Astros (12-3).

Washington catcher, Kurt Suzuki, who also has been a defensive stalwart, again started the key “Wash” rally, putting them ahead to stay with a home run vs losing pitcher Justin Verlander (he is the first pitcher in World Series history to lose in his first 5 World Series decisions).

In game 1 Suzuki walked to start the decisive, 3 run Nationals 5th inning.

Last night, failure by the excellent Houston third baseman, Alex Bregman, to make the play on what was properly scored a Howie Kendrick rbi single, made the score (4-2) Nationals. They added 4 more runs in the inning and went on to a (12-3) win.

The Nationals will take the field for the first World Series game in the U.S. capital in 86 years, having won 18 of their last 20 games, eight straight and (10-2) in post-season.

They joined the 1970 Baltimore Orioles, who won it all led by the great Brooks Robinson, as the only teams to win the first two games of both an LCS and World Series on the road in the same season.
