Game 7 of the World Series Wednesday night in Los Angeles will answer the original questions posed by this contest between the champions of baseball’s American and National leagues.
The Los Angeles Dodgers and Houston Astros will play for a championship in Chavez Ravine on Wednesday night, wrapping up two outstanding seasons in Game 7 — the biggest stage in North American team sports. Two 100-win teams will play a winner-take-all finale to the baseball season for the first time since 1931
“I think you dream about that as a kid,” said Dodgers outfielder Joc Pederson, whose third homer in four games powered Los Angeles past Houston in Game 6. “I think it’s going to be big for … all of us to just remember it’s still a baseball game. You’ve got to slow it down. Still play the same way that we’ve been playing all year that got us to here
While Astros manager A.J. Hinch was in a press conference announcing Lance McCullers as his Game 7 starter just minutes after losing Game 6, McCullers was on the field getting ready.
McCullers will be on full rest for Game 7 having last pitched in the Astros’ Game 3 win. He gave up three runs in 5 1/3 innings in that outing before being relieved by Brad Peacock, who didn’t allow a hit the rest of the way.
