Scene shifts for Game Three of the World Series tonight

For the first time since 2005, Houstonians get to see a World Series game in their home town.

Game Three of the Fall Classic is set for tonight as the Astros host the Dodgers. The best-of-seven is all tied up at one game apiece after the Astros 7-6 win in Game Two on Wednesday.

The 'Stros will turn to Lance McCullers, Jr. to help them gain the upper hand on the Dodgers. McCullers says he and the team are motivated by more than just the World Series; they are motivated by the victims of Hurricane Harvey.

“For us to be able to play baseball for a couple of hours, and for those people to be able to have a little bit of joy; to get away from what they are going through; it’s pretty special to be able to give that to them,” McCullers said on Thursday.

Off the field, there was a report - by TMZ - that manager AJ Hinch was involved in an altercation at a bar after Game One on Tuesday, something he strongly denied.

“It’s a shame I get asked about some nonsense, some fabrication, some non-stories,” Hinch said. “There was no altercation.”

Astros fans know there are homeless people in the Minute Maid Park area. There's been some question as to whether those homeless people will be moved. Mayor Sylvester Turner says no, but HPD Chief Art Acevedo told out TV partner Channel 2 there will be increased police presence.

“We will be monitoring with undercover officers. We’re ready,” Acevedo told our TV partner Channel 2.

Texans Star J.J. Wat, who raised 37 million dollars on his own for Hurricane Harvey relief, throws out the first pitch tonight.

 Major League Baseball has changed the game start times for the rest of the series, so first pitch tonight is set for 7:20. Coverage starts at 5 on Sports Talk 790.
