"I've pitched through so much crap in my career that that would be easy to pitch through at this point. Keep us in the ballgame, who knows what can happen?"

Trump and first lady Melania Trump entered a lower-tier box to the left of home plate as the game got underway.

President Trump showed up at last night's Game Five of the World Series at National's Park in Washington.

"He's prepared. He's ready for this moment".

Starting pitchers were the talk of the Series coming in, with Washington's Stephen Strasburg, Scherzer and Corbin combining for 12 All-Star selections and three Cy Young Awards.

"It's going to be business as usual for him". Max Scherzer will be more rested, hopefully over the neck and back spasms, and able to dominate like we have seen from him over the past few seasons.

The Houston Astros shut down the Nats' offense for the third consecutive game Sunday night, winning 7-1, and now are just one victory away from their second World Series championship in three years.

Springer added a two-run in the ninth against Daniel Hudson.

The hootin' and hollerin' carried on in the mini-cafeteria in the visiting clubhouse at Nationals Park.

Alex Bregman hit a 7th inning grand slam in Game 4 to help the Houston Astros dump the Washington Nationals 8-1 and tie the World Series 2-2.

As is the routine of the Washington Nationals, a salute to veterans took place after the third inning with the crowd cheering for the veterans who appeared on the jumbotron before them.

Then, in the seventh, it just went off the rails. "Quite frankly, we were very grateful for that", Manfred said.

Sunday's 1-1 draw with in-form rivals Liverpool offered a chink of light after a miserable few months at Old Trafford. Mourinho said Klopp had clearly not enjoyed the way Manchester United made the game hard for Liverpool.


If he can't, and there is a Game 7 on Wednesday, the Nationals will hope they can send out three-time Cy Young Award victor Max Scherzer, who was scratched just hours before Game 5 because of a neck problem that left him unable to lift his throwing arm.

He said he had a cortisone shot on Sunday and was told it would take 48 hours to kick in.

Doctors say Scherzer might be available for Washington if the Nats can force a seventh game.

Scherzer was 11-7 with a 2.92 ERA in 27 starts, ending a streak of six straight seasons with more than 200 innings. Andrés received a loud ovation when he appeared on the field before the game. Over the next three days, the 107-win Astros asserted themselves and have pushed the Nationals to the brink of elimination. "We've got Joe on the mound and we'll get them'". A J.V. day is fun. To calm his nerves he said he had coffee with his mother, Alma, on Saturday morning. "He ain't slowing down".

The last time the road team won the first five games of the World Series was in the 1996 edition between the Yankees and the Braves. Once again, though, Houston won the next game to advance. The Astros went down 0-2 to start the series, losing both games at Minute Maid Park to kick things off. He has been relying on his starters to shore up a shaky bullpen in the postseason.

Thus, that Houston's star of Game 4 was Jose Urquidy - two appearances in a month - was akin to a blackjack dealing extra in "Ocean's Eleven" stealing the movie from the glittering cast.

A Britain-based war monitor said the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF ) had yet to start pulling back on Saturday. Ankara says they have shared coordinates with the U.S. of safe evacuation paths for the Kurdish fighters to withdraw from.
