Houston rebounded from two painstaking defeats on their home turf, snatching a victory from the Nationals in D.C.'s first World Series game since 1933.

Nationals manager Dave Martinez announced that starter Max Scherzer was scratched from his Game 5 start against the Astros because of spasms in his neck and upper right trapezius.

"I couldn't do anything, couldn't even dress myself", Scherzer said, needing to turn his entire body to answer questions. "It's Game 5 of the World Series. This is literally impossible to do anything with".

"I hope I go home with nothing left in the tank", he said.

As you obviously know, short-series baseball has taken over the game. "When he comes in and says he's hurt this bad, he's hurt". He received a text from Scherzer five minutes later with the same message. The 26-year-old right-hander hasn't started since holding the Cleveland Indians to one run September 29. He insisted this isn't connected to those ailments, which were in a different location. Adam Eaton then drew a one-out walk to put two on. He received a cortisone injection today, the effects of which aren't likely to take full effect for at least 48 hours.

With Suzuki nursing a hip injury and unlikely to play Sunday night, Scherzer doesn't mind at all firing the ball at catcher Yan Gomes. Rookie Jose Urquidy also gave the Astros their best performance of the series by a starting pitcher in Game 4, tossing five shutout innings and limiting the Nationals to just two hits, cooling down a previously hot lineup.

Ross has made one appearance in the postseason - a two-inning scoreless effort out of the bullpen in Game 3 of the World Series.

"Just wants to continue to play and every time I see him he gets better and better", Martinez said. While he stayed in the game for seven innings, Cole was victimized by a pair of home runs, allowing five runs on eight hits.

Once he left, the Nationals had their best opportunity of the game in the sixth.

The Nationals are hopeful Scherzer will still pitch before this series is over. Rematch of Game 1 starters Gerrit Cole and Max Scherzer on Sunday.

"We're pretty good, too", Astros manager AJ Hinch said. "We're going to let him go as much as he can go". In Game 2 on Wednesday, he became one of four players under the age of 21 to draw an intentional walk in a World Series game.

He had 238 strikeouts in 202 innings this season and did so while posting a very respectable 3.25 ERA with a 3.49 FIP. Chirinos went 2 for 5 with two RBIs and a run scored. "They're a great team so we will see what happens, but it's going to be a good series". "I had to have my wife help me".

The fifth game of the 2019 World Series between the Astros and the Nationals is scheduled to start at 8:07 p.m. ET and will be displayed on Fox.

"The first pitches are our call, and we felt there are many other candidates that should be considered before [Trump]", Nationals principal owner Mark Lerner was quoted as saying by The Washington Post.

"We kind of gave him a heads-up last night", Martinez said after the game.

"He's really upset and wants to be out there with his teammates".
