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

Chicago Cubs

The Houston Astros have taken a 2-1 lead in the World Series after hitting their way through Yu Darvish and the Dodgers bullpen last night (I’m glad someone could get to them). If they win tonight, too, they can finish the whole thing at their home ballpark tomorrow. If not, this series is heading back to Los Angeles.

With Alex Wood (Dodgers) and Charlie Morton (Astros) on the mound tonight, you have to give the slight advantage to the Dodgers, but probably not by much.

Like yesterday, I have a pitching preview (via MLB) for you, but it once again contains some graphic Cubs-striking-out footage.
