The 2019 World Series has now been reduced to a best-of-three. The Houston Astros slammed the Washington Nationals Saturday night with an 8-1 win to even the series at two games apiece. Max Scherzer had been slated to start Game 5 for the Nationals but was scratched Sunday afternoon due to back/neck issues. Joe Ross will now start in Scherzer’s place opposite Houston’s Gerrit Cole.
