Washington Nationals right-hander Stephen Strasburg (3-0, 1.64 ERA in the 2019 postseason) battles tonight Astros right-hander Justin Verlander (1-2, 3.70 ERA). Strasburg watched the Houston batting during spring training this year. "Yeah, I watched a little bit," Strasburg told news this week. "But, again, it's kind of beneficial that we share a spring training complex with them. You look at some things that they might be doing differently, but for the most part, hitters don't really change too much over the years." So did that prepare him for tonight? They've got a little bit of everything, so I think it's just knowing how you want to attack certain guys and not just fall into the pattern of just throwing the same pitch to start guys off or finish guys and really just take it one pitch at a time and focus in on that."
Verlander is ready to win but is nervous. "You know that the nerves are going to be higher," Verlander said to news. "Your body knows it's not a regular start. Going to sleep tonight is not going to be the same as normal. But having done it before, I don't know if it helps, it's definitely not going to calm you down any more, but I know what to expect going into it. And having a routine does definitely help because it's like from the minute I wake up I kind of start my routine, and I guess that kind of helps calm the nerves just a little bit."
But what is the mood tonight? "Anytime you're up against a really good starting pitcher, you want to take advantage of every single opportunity," Astros manager AJ Hinch said. "You know it's going to be a tall task. But I liked the at-bats. I even liked our at-bats with runners in scoring position. We had a little bit of bad luck. We did chase a little bit, as you're going to. Keep preaching, 'Give yourself as many opportunities as you can.' " For live score results tonight click HERE.
