WORLD SERIES GAME 7

It all comes down to this: One game for a championship

World Series Game 7 is tonight. MLB.com

The Astros and Dodgers play Game 7 of the World Series tonight. Here is a preview. Check back during the game for inning by inning updates:

When: 7:20 p.m.

Where: Dodger Stadium.

TV: Fox.

Streaming: Fox Sports Go.

Pitching matchup: Lance McCullers vs. Yu Darvish.

Series: Tied 3-3.

The breakdown:  The Astros are coming off a deflating loss with their ace, Justin Verlander, on the mound. So it comes down to a patchwork pitching staff in a Game 7 on the road. Here's the bad news: 11 times a team has come home down 3-2 in a series. In eight of those, the home team won. That includes an 8-1 record in Game 7s. So the Astros face a tall task tonight. First pitch of Game 7 is scheduled for 7:20 PM Central tonight and can once again be seen on Fox. The Dodger's will start Yu Darvish, who the Astros were able to drive out early in Game 3 with a four-run second inning. The Astros have not yet named a starter but it will likely be Lance McCullers Jr. Of course, the starters will have short leashes as both teams will have nearly all their pitchers available for at least some amount of work in an attempt to do whatever it takes to win this ultimate decisive game. The Dodgers certainly have the upper hand, so it will take a big effort from the Astros to pull this out.
