Game 1 Alan Porter

Porter will be making his World Series umpiring debut by calling balls and strikes for the Max Scherzer-Gerrit Cole matchup. Porter is in his 10th season as an umpire. This season was one in which he had the most hitter-friendly strike zone of his career and one of the most hitter-friendly zones in baseball, per our Strike Zone Runs Saved metric.

The Nationals' Scherzer has a 60-to-9 strikeout-to-walk ratio with Porter in the regular season, but all eight of his starts came before 2019. Cole had one start with Porter this season. He's had four in his career, registering 20 strikeouts against six walks.

Most important tendencies: A three-year look at Porter's trends shows an umpire who calls fewer strikes than his peers on down-and-in pitches to left-handed batters and on pitches at or above the top of the strike zone to right-handed hitters. Porter also ranks among the least likely umpires to call a batter out on a close two-strike pitch, so both starters will likely have to earn their strikeouts.
Behind the balls and strikes

Good disciplined approach at the plate with favor the Stros allowing us to get into the Nats' pen. Hopefully Cole has his good swing and miss stuff going this game.

Also, be prepared for lots of *****ing about the zone.
Worth repeating.
