Astros' World Series Opponent Being Worked Out

Divisional Series - Washington Nationals v Los Angeles Dodgers - Game Five

Okay, that’s an optimist’s perspective, but as the Astros embark on their quest to beat the Yankees and win the 2019 American League pennant it’s worth keeping an eye on what’s happening in the National League.

Anibal Sanchez threw seven-and-two-thirds of one-hit baseball as the Washington Nationals beat the St. Louis Cardinals 2-0 in Game One of the National League Championship Series.

Howie Kendrick knocked in a run in the seventh and scored on a Yan Gomes double in the second. Sean Doolittle nailed down the final inning and a third for the Nats for the save. Miles Mikolas gave up a run on seven hits while striking out seven over six for St. Louis. Pinch hitter Jose Martinez hit a ball into center with two-strikes to break up the no-hitter in the eighth.

Game Two of the National League Championship Series will be this afternoon at Busch Stadium in St. Louis.
