Dave Martinez Was Checked By Doctors After World Series Game 6 Meltdown

Washington Nationals relief pitcher Tanner Rainey throws against the Houston Astros during the sixth inning of Game 5 of the baseball World Series Sunday Oct. 27 2019 in Washington

Rendon added a two-run double off Chris Devenski in the ninth to just about seal the win after Strasburg gutted through without his best fastball to throw five-hit ball for 8-1/3 innings.

With the Bengals having a bye this week, Finley will have to wait until November 10 to make his debut at home against the Baltimore Ravens.

Scherzer looked like he might be in trouble after back-to-back singles by designated hitter Yordan Alvarez and shortstop Carlos Correa with no outs. He is coming off his most durable season, going 18-6 with a 3.32 ERA and 251 strikeouts in an NL-high 209 innings, boosting his record to 112-58 in 10 seasons. Scherzer, the Game 1 victor who missed his Game 5 start because of an irritated nerve near his neck, has walked one and thrown 19 of 33 pitches for strikes.

"We worked really hard to get home-field and we're happy to play at home", he told reporters. He trotted with his bat past the bag at first, dropped it in the dirt and continued around the bases.

Soto, who turned 21 last Friday, has 17 hits this postseason. We've won a ton of games in this ballpark.

Washington will send Max Scherzer to the mound, while the Astros will counter with Zack Greinke. I mean tonight, he's got over 100 children with cancer at the game tonight.

Before Wednesday night's Game 7, Martinez revealed doctors went to check on him afterwards.

The team of destiny would not be denied their first World Series title. McHugh and McCullers helped the Astros to their first title in 2017.

It had been building inside of him, bubbling under the surface from the moment a bewildered Trea Turner walked off the field and back to the Nationals dugout following one of the most head-scratching interference calls you'll ever see.

"Started shaking my glove, so they didn't know what I was throwing", Strasburg said.

"Through all the adversity I think I've learned a lot about myself".

Nationals manager Dave Martinez then lost it in between innings and had to be restrained by his coaches, as he became the first manager since Bobby Cox in 1996 to be ejected from a World Series game. "That's unfortunate. And certainly we have to take ownership of that".

Update: Well, this game is off to a wild start. "The game has definitely gotten younger". The 24-year-old righty rookie, who began the year in Double-A, dazzled with five shutout innings in Game 4 and is available.

The Washington Nationals beat the Houston Astros 6-2 in Game 7 of the World Series in Houston. With Turner ruled out, Yan Gomes was returned to first from third. "We were 19-31. We didn't quit then, we weren't going to quit now", he said.

The Nationals reportedly called for the game to be played under protest, but Fox's Tom Verducci reported that the protest was disallowed because judgment calls aren't eligible for protest. Alex Bregman destroyed a center-cut fastball from Strasburg and carried his bat all the way past first base before finally dropping it in fair territory. "It was an emotional reaction".

"After the game and into the night I wanted to make sure he realized he's got to forgive himself before he moves on", Hinch said.
