As you have heard, Juan Soto is still the youngest player in this postseason and he is now twenty-one years of age today. Happy birthday Juan and we hope all of your wishes come to be! This is the first home World Series game in Washington, D.C. in over 86 years! Soak this all in and enjoy!
The Nationals will have the Chief on the mound…for the pregame ceremonial first pitch to Brian Schneider as those two will hook-up as they during 2005 in the Nats inaugural season, and today’s first pitch in the game will be from Anibal Sanchez who is the pitcher in this third game.
For the Houston Astros, they will throw righty Zack Greinke today. The Nats have a long record against him, and some of the Astros have some history against Sanchez.
Most likely manager Dave Martinez will stick with the same lineup as he had in the first two games of this World Series. As Davey says, one game at a time and let’s go 1-0 today.
Notes for the fans, the gates open at 5 pm. America the Beautiful will be sung by the US Army Chorus Quartet and the National Anthem will be sung by the incomparable D.C. Washington, and God Bless America will be sung by the US Navy Sea Chanters.
