Has the visiting team ever won every game in the series?


An away team in any major sport that has 7 game series has never even won six... EVER

down by a minimum of 3 in the 9th and we have 4-5-6 due up? Not ideal

We have scored three runs so far after the first inning in our three home games. Not good.

So we have their entire pitching roster vs Greinke and the scraps. We really didnt need to **** the bed today

I blame my kids' elementary school principal who sent out an email blast before the game about wearing Astros gear tomorrow to celebrate "taking it back".

Terrible.

So they have Scherzer and Sanchez tomorrow, and we have Grienke. I don't like our chances.


What about Cole ?

Come on man, this isn't the Florida Marlins pitching staff, don't assume they are going to throw a 1st pitch 92mph fastball over the middle of the plate.

Jesus, why do we swing at all first pitches??

Because oftentimes, that's the best pitch you will sea.


But if the last two or three innings we just watch three strikes, he's out of the game after the 7th.

Now he's going 9.

This is more on the offense than on jv
Dude gave up only 3 runs....not his fault the offense turned into a bunch of scrubs

I blame all the people who posted earlier today about going to Academy after the game tonight.

The baseball gods were not pleased.
I was already on my way to cruise the Richmond strip.

I mean. What an absolute choke job. Not only does JV **** the bed. The offense is gonna let Strasberg go 9 and their bullpen gets more rest. Unbelievable choke job. Unless Sherzer is dead they won this series tonight.


U gotta be kidding me, Strasburg is their best pitcher...this was going to be the toughest game of the series for us.

I feel great about game 7 if it comes to that

Greinke, Cole in relief, and Nats won't have Strasburg

Our guys have turned the page to game 7. And honestly this Nationals team is a tough tough team to punch out. Soto and Rendon are such a force. We must find a way to get to their bullpen but tonight wasn't that night. Strasburg solid.

He's at hundred pitches and everyone swings at the first pitch? Terrible approaches. Make him work.


I do not understand our approach that inning at all. Should have been working his pitch count all game. Especially this inning when you atleast can get them to burn some pitchers. Got to hope Scherzer can't end up going tomorrow and Greinke throws a gem.

I hate to say it but they may just keep Strausberg warm and let him go again tomorrow


He might just stay on the mound and wait til tomorrow's first pitch

Im not giving up on this game like a lot of you winnies are. Ive seen em score 9 runs in an inning before. Its baseball, and i would want no other way to win this game than a come from behind win in the 9th or extra innings.

I felt better going into game 7 in LA in 2017 than I do going into game 7 at home tomorrow.

Embarrassed. That's what the offense should feel. Strasburg has pitched well but not THAT well. Plenty of meatballs left there.

We're about to go into game 7 with Scherzer vs. Greinke. And they have a fully rested bullpen. And the momentum. And apparently we can't hit at home.

Jobu better do his magic, and quick.

Is most of this board on bipolar medication?

Lose first 2 games - well we are getting swept
Win next 3 games - going to Academy after our game 6 win!
Losing during game 6 - well we are definitely losing game 7

Well. Not Strasburg. We'll have Greinke, Urquidy, Cole (limited), & a well rested Osuna & Smith. Meaning we should have plenty. It'll come down to the offenses.

But it's been like that for years. It's just magnified in the postseason.

Once again, Astros batters are trying to pull everything. If Nats win game 7, it might be the biggest choke in WS history.
