The MLB season comes to an end with the Los Angeles Dodgers hosting the Houston Astros in game seven of the World Series.
The Houston Astros saw their chance at winning the World Series title go out the door in a 3-1 game six defeat on Tuesday night where the top offense in the game went silent. The Houston pitching was very good but not good enough with starter Justin Verlander allowing two runs on three hits while striking out nine over six innings to absorb the loss while Joe Musgrove served up a solo jack in the 7th.

The Astros attack consisted of six hits and two bases on balls with George Springer going 2-3 with a solo jack. The Houston Astros give the game seven start to right hander Lance McCullers Jr. who makes his second appearance in the World Series. McCullers defeated Los Angeles 5-3 with three runs allowed on four hits and four walks over 5.1 frames.
The Los Angeles Dodgers sent the World Series to a decisive game seven with a 3-1 win in game six on Tuesday. Los Angeles received just enough offense to support outstanding work on the mound. Dodgers starter Rich Hill allowed the lone run on a solo homer through 4.2 frames before four relievers put up zeros.
The LA Dodgers did their damage on five hits and a walk with Joc Pederson clubbing a solo bomb while Chris Taylor and Corey Seager knocked in a run each. The Los Angeles Dodgers have named Yu Darvish as Wednesday’s game seven starter. Darvish has appeared once in the World Series and absorbed a 5-3 loss with four runs given up on six hits and a base on balls over 1.2 innings of work.
Houston are 24-10 in their last 34 overall and Houston are 24-10 in their last 34 games on grass and Houston are 34-14 in their last 48 Wednesday games. Over is 6-3-1 in Los Angeles last 10 home games and Los Angeles are 2-6 in their last 8 Wednesday games and Los &Angeles are 23-8 in their last 31 interleague games. Houston are 2-8 in the last 10 meetings in Los Angeles and under is 6-3-1 in the last 10 meetings.
I don’t think Darvish is the guy you want starting game seven in the World Series and McCullers isn’t ideal either. My gut says the Astros chances of winning were in game six and Los Angeles again gets the job done and celebrates Wednesday…
