This World Series has been the opposite of home sweet home. After five games the road team has won every time.
If that holds up, it would be good news for Washington as the Series shifts back to Houston. The Nationals have Stephen Strasburg on the mound tomorrow against Justin Verlander, and the confidence knowing less than a week ago they beat Verlander in Houston, and knowing Verlander has never won a World Series game.
Just like Houston went into Game 5 with a pitcher they were almost 100 percent sure was going to dominate in Garrit Cole, Washington has Strasburg and his brilliant 1.98 post-season ERA.
There are no givens. But if Houston is able to beat Stasburg in Game 6, they will certainly earn it.
