On Tuesday night, Los Angeles Dodgers forced Game 7 of World Series by defeating Houston Astros 3-1 in Game 6 at Dodgers stadium.
Astros pitcher Justin Verlander also played well during the game by striking out nine in six innings and allowing just two runs on three hits. Verlander helped the Astros in taking an early one-run lead. He was also dominant through the first five innings.
But the Dodgers got to Verlander, the former Detroit Tigers ace, in the bottom of the sixth with an RBI double by Chris Taylor and an RBI sacrifice fly by Corey Seager. After that, Dodgers center fielder Joc Pederson added a solo home run off Astros reliever Joe Musgrove in the bottom of the seventh. It was his third home run of the World Series.
Los Angeles got another short start from Rich Hill, as the left-hander was removed after allowing one earned run in just 4 2/3 innings, but the Dodgers’ bullpen, which had been the subject of a great deal of scrutiny in the last few days, came through in a big way with 4 1/3 shutout innings. Kenley Jansen earned six-out save as he thoroughly dominated the Astros’ batters.
Baseball pitcher Yu Darvish will begin Game 7 for the Dodgers at the Dodgers stadium. However, Hosuton have not yet announced its starting pitcher. This is the first time that Dodger stadium will host the seventh game of the World Series. The first pitch for the game is scheduled for tomorrow at 8:20 pm ET.
We hope that Game 7 would be as entertaining as that of the previous games of the World Series.
