World Series Game 3 Preview: Astros Vs. Nationals – Start Time, Channel, Players To Watch

It’s been 86 years since the Fall Classic was in Washington D.C. Behind a potent offense and dominant pitching from Max Scherzer and Stephen Strasburg, the Washington Nationals enter their home park with a 2-0 series advantage over the Houston Astros in the World Series after a 12-3 Game two rout on Wednesday night.

When they were back in Washington, the Washington Senators lost game five of the World Series to the New York Giants. The Washington team of today has forgotten how to lose in the postseason. They’re now on a record-tying, eight-game win streak in the postseason and if they break the record, the series is by all accounts over.

Even with this all in tow, the Nats aren’t looking far ahead, even if the season is coming to a close very soon.

“We’re just looking forward to the next game,” said Nationals catcher Kurt Suzuki, whose solo homer put the Nats up for good in Game two at Minute Maid Park. “Obviously, we know what’s at stake. We’re not looking too far in the future. We know to keep our eye on the target, come out, just be 1-0 the next day and go from there.”

The Astros already have a steep hill to climb, as teams who have fallen into an 0-2 hole in the World Series have only won in three of those 25 instances. The last team to do it was the New York Yankees in 1996 against the Atlanta Braves.

Houston’s manager A.J Hinch also realizes the gravity of the situation his team is in.

“Clearly, Game 3 becomes critical for us,”  Hinch said. “I doubt the Nats are going to feel too confident that they have this sewed up and they can start planning the parade. We’re going to give them a fight for it.”

Game 3 will be Friday at 8 p.m. EST in Washington and will air on FOX. The Nationals will put Anibal Sanchez — who took a no-hitter into the eighth in his last start — on the mound. Zack Greinke will pitch for Houston.
