The Houston Astros are one victory away from winning their first World Series in franchise history. The Astros lead the Los Angeles Dodgers 3–2 in the best-of-seven series, which heads back to Dodger Stadium on Tuesday night
Anyone who followed along with our postseason coverage last October probably remembers how accurate Strat-O-Matic was when it came to nailing World Series games.With the Fall Classic between the Houston Astros and Los Angeles Dodgerscontinuing Tuesday night, this is as good of a time as any to check in on what Strat-O-Matic foresees. Here’s a look at how the night played out via simulation.
the reality that they will give the ball to Verlander, of all pitchers, in Game 6 Tuesday night at Dodger Stadium made Bregman realize how close the Astros are. It’s within their grasp now, so long as Verlander can deliver on what the Astros brought him here to do.
The biggest issue for Hill, however, has been going deep into games, as he has only pitched 13 innings over those three starts. With Los Angeles’ bullpen in bad shape after being heavily taxed over the last three games in Houston, Hill will likely need to pitch late into this game for the Dodgers to find success.
In the last 11 instances that the home team in Game 6 of the World Series returned home down 3-2 in the series, the home team went 9-2 in Game 6 and 8-1 in Game 7. With Verlander on the mound and the Dodgers on the ropes, this will be Houston’s best chance at winning this series
