Pre-World-Series-Gamin’: Dodgers at Astros (7:00 CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread


The World Series is currently all tied up, with the Astros and Dodgers at one win a piece. The series will now head to Houston for three straight games over the weekend. Who ya got tonight?

With Yu Darvish taking the mound against Lance McCullers, you might think the Dodgers have at least a tiny advantage, but McCullers had some sneaky great peripherals this season (including a career high 3.30 K/BB ratio). With home advantage to boot, I think I’m leaning Astros.

WARNING: This is a nice little Game Three pitching preview from MLB … but it includes Darvish making Cubs hitters look silly. Watch at your own peril.
