Astros enjoy their weekend in DC, return with series lead

MLB: World Series-Houston Astros at Washington Nationals Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

If there is to be a Game 7, this will have to change or else the Astros will celebrate on Tuesday.

The Astros outscored the Nationals 19-3 in Washington DC. Gerrit Cole was able to collect the important Game 5 win and put his maybe soon to be former team in the driver’s seat for the World Series.

Yordan Alvarez put his mark in this World Series.

Beers are really expensive at the World Series.

The anticipated match between Cole and Max Scherzer did not happen because Scherzer could not pitch on Sunday due to spasms in his right trapezius.

Gerrit Cole continued his strong 2019 postseason pitching performances.

Carlos Correa has not been hitting for average but he can hit a big home run with the best of them.

Another reminder about this core of Astro players.
