|Washington Nationals +155|
Washington’s offense dried up once they returned home as they failed to do much of anything. After scoring 17 games in the first two games of the series, the Nationals scored three in their three games at home.
The Nationals have to find a way to regain their magic as they finished with only four hits in Sunday’s loss. Juan Soto (run, RBI) had two hits, including his fourth postseason homer to account for Washington’s lone run, while Howie Kendrick and Yan Gomes each had one hit.
Joe Ross (0-1), who was the emergency starter when Max Scherzer woke up Sunday morning with neck spasms, took the loss on the mound.
The Washington Nationals looked lifeless in their 3 home games, but they get to return to Minute Maid Park where they outscored the Astros 17-7.
Nationals are 6-0 in their last 6 road games, Nationals are 5-0 in their last 5 road games vs. a right-handed starter, Nationals are 4-0 in their last 4 interleague road games.
