Washington Nationals at Houston Astros MLB Matchup

There are three tiers of familiarity with the Houston Astros that Washington Nationals right-hander Stephen Strasburg will aim to exploit when he takes the mound Wednesday in Game 2 of the World Series.

In addition to his film study of the American League Championship Series that the Astros claimed in six games over the New York Yankees and the first-hand experience he gleaned watching the Nationals’ 5-4 victory in Game 1 of the World Series on Tuesday, Strasburg tapped into the recesses of his memory while crafting a scouting report on Houston.

The Nationals and Astros share the same West Palm Beach, Fla., ballpark during spring training in the Grapefruit League.

“Yeah, I watched a little bit,” Strasburg said of his ALCS viewing habits. “But, again, it’s kind of beneficial that we share a spring training complex with them. You look at some things that they might be doing differently, but for the most part, hitters don’t really change too much over the years.
