World Series – Game 6 (HOU Leads 3-2)

This could be it! The Astros play the Dodgers in Los Angeles in hopes to win their first World Series since becoming a MLB team in 1962. The Dodgers will try to force a Game 7 by sending Rich Hill to the mound. The Dodgers face a tough opponent in Justin Verlander who has been nothing but dominant since making his first start with the Astros on September 5.

If the Astros win, they will be the first road team to clinch a World Series title in Game 6 since the 2003 Florida Marlins. If the Dodgers force a Game 7, it’ll be the first time back-to-back World Series have went seven games since 2001-2002.
