Nationals fall to Astros 8-1, even up World Series 2-2
The Washington Nationals fell to the Houston Astros in an 8-1 loss in Game 4 of the World Series. This leaves the series tied at 2-2, making it anyone’s game tonight in Washington and later this week in Houston. Patrick Corbin threw six innings that yielded seven hits, four runs, two walks, and five strikeouts, making it another tough start for the Nationals’ southpaw starter. Unfortunately, the bullpen did not alleviate any of the pain as Tanner Rainey gave up two runs and Fernando Rodney surrendered a grand slam to Alex Bregman. The Nationals’ only run was Juan Soto’s RBI groundout in the sixth inning.
Tonight, Max Scherzer and Gerrit Cole will face each other in what hopes to be a redemption match for Washington. First pitch is scheduled for 8:07 p.m. ET.
