Ross to start instead of Scherzer in Game 5 of World Series

Following reports of neck and back spasms, Max Scherzer will not be starting Game 5 of the World Series for the Washington Nationals. Joe Ross will duel Gerrit Cole in Scherzer’s place. Ross, who has been rebounding from Tommy John surgery, will need to show his best stuff on the world stage if he is to make series history for Washington. After a tough 8-1 loss last night, the Nationals hope to reclaim the 2-2 series.

The lineup for tonight is as follows:

  1. Trea Turner – SS
  2. Adam Eaton – RF
  3. Anthony Rendon – 3B
  4. Juan Soto – LF
  5. Howie Kendrick – 2B
  6. Ryan Zimmerman – 1B
  7. Victor Robles – CF
  8. Yan Gomes – C
  9. Joe Ross – SP

First pitch is scheduled for 8:07 p.m. ET.
