So two of the best pitchers in baseball matched up against each other in Game 1.
One of them threw 112 (!) pitches in five innings and seemed to struggle with every pitch.
The other allowed five runs in a game for the first time since May.
And if things keep up the way they started in Game 1, Juan Soto is going to be World Series MVP. If so, it’ll be a nice birthday present. The Nats left fielder turns 21 on Friday.
Here’s all the info you’ll need for tonight’s game.
Game time for World Series Game 2: 7 p.m. CT. TV: Fox. Announcers: Joe Buck, John Smoltz. Ken Rosenthal and Tom Verducci.
