HOUSTON ASTROS @ ATLANTA BRAVES

FIRST PITCH: 7:09 PM CDT

TV: FOX

RADIO: ESPN RADIO

ATL leads 2-1

Atlanta fans are probably of two minds on this one, as near-certain leads haven’t gone well for them historically, either in single games or series as a whole. Still, though, a win tonight means they have a chance to clinch the World Series in front of the home crowd, and in five games, nonetheless.

The Astros are trying to prevent that, although after nearly getting no-hit last night, they’ll need a bit of a moral rebound. They’re sending fan favorite Zack Greinke to the mound, who will be the first pitcher since Babe Ruth not to bat ninth in the World Series. Greinke and his nine career homers could make a difference in what might be one of the last gasps of pitchers hitting.

GO TWINS GO!
