Nats pound Astros to force Game 7

HOUSTON (AP) Max Scherzer, this is your moment. And baseball fans, this is what you hoped for.

A World Series mostly devoid of drama suddenly involves the two most compelling words in sports: Game 7.

Mad Max, in so much pain over the weekend he could hardly move, starting for the Washington Nationals.

''Everybody has the belief in me and the doctors that I could get right and be ready,'' Scherzer said.

Zack Greinke, acquired by Houston in late July for exactly these situations, pitching for the Astros.

''A little excited about it at the moment, but we'll see,'' Greinke said.

The wild-card Nationals, trying to rewrite franchise history with their first championship. The 107-win Astros, aiming to build a legacy by taking their second crown in three years.

''Maybe not how we drew it up in terms of how we got there, but it doesn't take away the opportunity we have to win the World Series,'' Astros manager AJ Hinch said.

A pair of teams that began spring training under sunny skies in February, working out side-by-side in the complex they share in Florida, now meeting in late October under the retractable roof at Minute Maid Park for the biggest prize of all.

And this: What to expect from Scherzer on Wednesday night?

Unable to pitch Game 5 on Sunday night because of nerve irritation near his neck that required a cortisone shot, the three-time Cy Young Award winner is set to start this all-or-nothing showdown.

''The cortisone shot worked. That relieved the pressure on the nerve,'' Scherzer said.

Scherzer tossed in the outfield before Game 6 - a charged, 7-2 win by the Nationals - and even loosened up in the bullpen in the seventh inning Tuesday night.

''Max is starting tomorrow,'' manager Dave Martinez said. ''We got him up knowing that if the game is tied or we were up a run we might have to use him. He wanted to go down there and just throw and get loose. We scored some more runs and I immediately shut him down.''

Whether the Game 1 winner, known for his incredible intensity, will be able to cut loose at full force, we'll soon see.

''We don't know if he's healthy or not. We're going to find out in the first inning,'' Astros star Carlos Correa said.

If Scherzer returns and wins, it might well go down in sports lore, along with Curt Schilling's bloody sock, Kirk Gibson hobbling around the bases and the night Willis Reed limped back on the court at Madison Square Garden.

''They'd probably make a movie about it. I bet, if he could, he could come back from the dead,'' teammate Adam Eaton said.

The Nationals rallied to extend the only World Series where the road team has taken the six first games. So much for the home-field advantage.

''Doesn't look like there is one right now, but I hope there's one tomorrow. We're waiting until the last game to have it on our side,'' Hinch said.

Everyone available, probably.

Astros ace Gerrit Cole, certainly. And maybe Justin Verlander after going five innings Tuesday night.

''It's a Game 7, all hands on deck. If AJ asks, I'm sure I'll figure out a way,'' Verlander said.

Houston played in the previous Game 7 of the World Series, when George Springer and crew hammered Los Angeles at Dodger Stadium in 2017.

Road teams took the two prior Game 7s, too - Joe Maddon's Cubs at Cleveland in 2016 and Madison Bumgarner and the Giants at Kansas City in 2014.

Greinke gave up one run over 4 2/3 innings in his first World Series start when the Astros took Game 3. Acquired from Arizona at the trade deadline, the six-time All-Star is 0-2 with a 5.30 ERA in four starts this postseason.

Did he ever imagine pitching a Game 7?

''Probably, but can't remember doing that at the moment,'' he said.

Healthy, Scherzer went 3-0 with a 2.16 ERA this postseason in four starts and one relief appearance.

No time to dwell on those stats. His biggest start is looming.

''That's what you live for,'' he said. ''For me, I need to get in my pregame routine right now, and that's where I'm at mentally, here we go.''
