The Houston Astros are back home at Minute Maid Park with two chances to win their second World Series title.
Game 6 of the Fall Classic is tonight as Justin Verlander takes on Stephen Strasberg. Verlander is oh-and-six in World Series starts and would love to turn that around tonight. Houston leads the best-of-seven series 3-games-to-2 after taking three in a row at Nationals Park.
If Washington can pull off the win tonight and force a Game 7, it would be the only time in World Series history that the visiting team won each of the first six games. Through five games, this World Series marks only the third time that the road team has won each game. It happened in 1996 between the Yankees and Braves and in 2006 between the White Sox and Cubs.

The Seahawks are back home preparing to face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Sunday at CenturyLink Field…
Seattle finished the first half of the NFL season 6-and-2 with Sunday’s 27-20 win over Atlanta. Coach Pete Carroll met with reporters Monday and confirmed that center Justin Britt suffered an ACL injury on his knee and will need “a major repair.”
Carroll was asked about the status of newly-signed defensive back Quandre Diggs, who came over in a trade from Detroit, and tight end Ed Dickson, who’s coming off a knee injury…
Carroll was asked to assess his team after a 6-and-2 first half of the season. He says he’s seen glimpses of what COULD be, but they’re not there yet…
