If there is to be a Game 7, this will have to change or else the Astros will celebrate on Tuesday.
Astros at Nationals - World Series Game 5 (Astro lead 3-2)
Yordan Alvarez put his mark in this World Series.
Beers are really expensive at the World Series.
What a legend— FOX Sports: MLB (@MLBONFOX) October 28, 2019
This fan was double fisting with 2 beers and took Yordan's home run ball to the gut! pic.twitter.com/9Tfi8uiyhy
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.
Max Scherzer will not start today. Spasms in his right trapezius. Woke up much worse. Joe Ross will start. Hard to imagine how bad it must have been for Max to say he couldn’t go today. Unthinkable, really.— Chelsea Janes (@chelsea_janes) October 27, 2019

Gerrit Cole continued his strong 2019 postseason pitching performances.
That's 47 strikeouts for Gerrit Cole this postseason, tied for 2nd-most in a single postseason all-time.— Sarah Langs (@SlangsOnSports) October 28, 2019
Only pitcher with more: 2001 Curt Schilling, with 56.
Carlos Correa has not been hitting for average but he can hit a big home run with the best of them.
Context worth noting:— Sarah Langs (@SlangsOnSports) October 28, 2019
Tonight is Correa's 48th career postseason game.
The only player with more postseason games played before turning 26 was Andruw Jones (61 games -- 7 HR in them). https://t.co/4F3ijyZ6sD
Another reminder about this core of Astro players.
