The 2019 World Series between the Houston Astros and Washington Nationals returns to Minute Maid Park for Game 6 on Tuesday. After sweeping the Nationals in Washington D.C., the Astros are one win away from their second World Series title in three years. Houston is looking to become the 15th team in MLB history to come back from a 2-0 deficit in a best-of-seven postseason series, and the first to do so in the World Series since the 1996 Yankees. If the Nationals can force a Game 7, it will mark the first time the road team has won the first six games of a postseason series in MLB history.

With back-to-back wins, the Houston Astros have tied the 2019 World Series at two games apiece against the Washington Nationals and are set for a pivotal Game 5 on Sunday night at Nationals Park.
In a shocking development, Max Scherzer was scratched and will not start for the Nationals due to spasms in his neck and back. Right-hander Joe Ross will go in his place.
“For Max to miss a game, especially a significant game like this, he’s got to be really hurting,” Washington manager Dave Martinez said before the game.

Without Scherzer, 26-year-old Joe Ross (4-4, 5.48 ERA) will take the mound for Washington. Ross made his only appearance of the postseason in Game 3, pitching two scoreless innings in a Nationals loss.
Astros co-ace Gerrit Cole (20-5, 2.50 ERA) looks for redemption after taking the loss in Game 1. The right-hander gave up five earned runs in seven innings, suffering his first loss since the middle of May.
