What Lola/Fox Wants, It Gets–The World Series Goes 7

October 30, 2019

Tonight for the third time in 4 seasons with the Buck/Smoltz combination as the Fox TV announcers, a #7 in the World Series will be played.

The play of Anthony Rendon (5 rbi’s) for the Houston native and Stephen Strasburg’s 2 run/8 and one third innings pitching, led “Wash” to a third win at Houston (7-2), forcing a Zack Greinke vs Max Scherzer started seventh tonight.

Incredibly, the road team, for the first time in any baseball, NHL or NBA best of 7 series won the first six games.

The road team has won a record 8 straight World Series games and is on an (18-3) run in the last baseball, NHL and NBA final round tilts.

The Astros won their previous #7 of a final, a road win at L.A. (Dodgers) in ’17. Houston won its only other previous #7 of a final in ’94, when the Rockets beat the New York Knicks.

Washington’s current sports teams also are unbeaten in such games, the lone one being the Bullets’ ’78 final win at Seattle vs the SuperSonics. (The Bullets are now the Wizards, while that Seattle franchise is now in Oklahoma City and sans even one title, lost stars James Harden, Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook to other teams).

In 4 World Series involving Washington teams, three (the other two involving the Senators, being a home, extra inning win in ’24 and a (9-7) loss, dissipating a 4 run lead in ’25) have gone to a game seven.
