Strasburg, Rendon help Nationals send Series to Game 7

Washington Nationals starter Stephen Strasburg has the chance to become the first Major League Baseball pitcher ever to go 5-0 in a single postseason.

Kayla Lauren, who attended the game with the models, shared on her Instagram story: 'Just got kicked out of the World Series.

Strasburg was trying to find his way out of the first inning but Alex Bregman took him yard with the bases empty and two outs to give the Astros a 2-1 lead. He is 5-0 with a 1.54 ERA, striking out 52 and walking only four over 35 innings in that streak.

For the Houston Astros, the 2019 World Series hangs on one more game. Prior to Game 5, the Nationals ace admitted to not being able to move his arm - pretty serious stuff - but could make a Game 7 start should the issues clear up.

Visiting teams have won three straight Game 7s in the Series since the Cardinals defeated Texas at home in 2011.

Nationals manager Dave Martinez stormed out of the dugout in protest, screaming at home plate umpire Sam Holbrook.

The sixth game of the 2019 World Series between the Astros and Nationals is scheduled to start at 8:07 p.m. ET and will be shown on Fox.

"He threw. He felt good", Martinez says.

He told a few reporters afterward, "I'm good".

The Nationals were dealt a huge blow before the game as starting pitcher Max Scherzer was ruled out after suffering back and neck spasms, with Joe Ross his late stand-in.

Pitching coach Paul Menhart watched Scherzer throw.

Games 6 and 7 are slated for Tuesday and Wednesday in Houston. which means Sunday was probably Trump's first and last appearance of the series.

Washington catcher Kurt Suzuki is out of the Nationals' lineup again for Game 6 of the World Series.

At listed odds of +155 for Game 6, oddsmakers suggest that Washington's chances are 1.3% better they were for Game 2.

Suzuki missed the past two games because of a hip flexor strain, and after a travel day still wasn't in the lineup Tuesday night against the Houston Astros and Justin Verlander. The only change to their lineup from then is center fielder Victor Robles batting eighth with Yan Gomes catching and batting ninth.

In 27 innings, they managed just three runs - a stat that must improve if they are to win the World Series.
