Houston Astros at Washington Nationals MLB Matchup

he home-field disadvantage in the 2019 World Series means that after four games, both the Washington Nationals and Houston Astros have won twice, but not in the fashion that was expected.

The Nationals won twice at Houston. The Astros won twice at Washington. The Astros must be feeling confident with Game 5 at Washington on Sunday.

The Astros’ 8-1 victory in Game 4 on Saturday means that the 2019 World Series is essentially a best-of-three series now. And one team will be on the brink of a title when Game 5 is done.

The series also will return to a battle of aces, as the Nationals are set to send Max Scherzer to the mound Sunday, while the Astros will give Gerrit Cole a chance at redemption. In Game 1 on Tuesday, Cole gave up five runs on eight hits over seven innings as the Nationals earned a 5-4 victory.

Cole expects far better of himself Sunday after giving up just one earned run in his previous three starts and 22 2/3 innings in the playoffs. His teammates will back him up with newfound momentum.
