Baby Shark lifts Washington Nationals to first World Series appearance

Ex-Tigers Sanchez and Scherzer were a big part of the Nationals' dominant starting pitching. Washington will await the victor of the Houston Astros-New York Yankees American League Championship Series, opening the World Series on the road on October 22.

The Washington Nationals scored seven runs in the first, then held on, by the skin of their teeth, it felt at times, to defeat St. Louis, 7-4, to complete a sweep of the Cardinals in the 2019 NLCS, sending the Nats to their first-ever World Series.

Who do you want to see the Nationals play in the World Series? Houston is now leading the series 2-1 over the Yankees with potentially four games remaining.

After two innings, the Nats lead 7-0 over the Cardinals.

However, Corbin has made two relief appearances since then, recording five consecutive outs, and will make his first start on Tuesday since October 3 - when he fell to the Dodgers in Game 1 of the NLDS.

2 cases of flu in children confirmed in Guelph, public health says
For healthy children aged two and three the flu vaccine is in the form of a nasal spray, administered by a health professional. The most common flu symptoms are fever and cough, but headache, chills, sore throat and muscle pain are also common.

The Nats now lead the Cardinals 3-0 in the NLCS, with two home games left to play, and will send out an elite starter for the third consecutive day with offseason signing Patrick Corbin set to pitch. Corbin did allow four runs, but he struck out 12 over five innings. Trea Turner singled and Adam Eaton doubled to begin the rally. Hudson then intentionally walked postseason hero Howie Kendrick to bring up Ryan Zimmerman.

Gomes and Turner delivered their two-run hits as the Nationals sent 11 batters to the plate in the inning.

When the Cardinals' Yadier Molina hit a home run in the fourth, it was the first time a Nationals starter gave up an earned run in the series.

Corbin has recorded five strikeouts through two innings.

And then, a couple of hours and several innings later, as Tanner Rainey, Sean Doolittle and Daniel Hudson were protecting a shrinking lead, those same spectators stood and shouted and reveled some more.
