Of all the pitchers the Washington Nationals will face in the World Series, Verlander is the most versatile.

The Nationals have a 1-0 lead in the World Series. Here’s the remaining schedule, how to watch and more.

The American League champions were determined not to let Juan Soto beat them, but the Nationals’ slugger obliterated those plans with a powerful World Series debut in Game 1.


The Nationals are bunting their way through the postseason. They should stop.

There have been 18 sacrifice bunt attempts in the playoffs this year, and the Nationals account for 12 of them.

"We're dressed for success," said Sean Doolittle, who earned the save in Game 1.

The original National described running around the bases as “floating.”

“We don’t want this to be the story,” Sports Illustrated reporter Stephanie Apstein said. “But I wrote it because it's not right and it’s true and that’s our obligation to say things that are true and then peel back the curtain on attitudes that I think are pervasive in the game.”

A baseball clubhouse is never going to be a normal workplace. It shouldn’t be a hostile one.

  • Perspective

The Nationals and Astros feature several of the best starting pitchers in the majors, and they will all be on display in the Fall Classic.

Baseball's reliance on the slider continues to increase, and both the Astros and Nationals have excelled with the pitch.

The AL champs eschew traditional scouts for data and video analysts. The Nats opt for a more tried (and mostly) true take on scouting.

Justin Verlander and Zack Greinke will starts Games 2 and 3, respectively, for Houston. Stephen Strasburg will start Game 2 for Washington.

This is how we got from Gerardo Parra using the song to about 44,000 fans chomping along in unison during the NLCS.

For telling the story of these Astros, the twisting and turning ALCS and the way baseball is played at the end of 2019, José Altuve's walk-off was the perfect vehicle.

Recent history offers grist for Washington Nationals supporters worried about this six-day layoff.

After New York ties Game 6 of the ALCS with a DJ LeMahieu homer in the top of the ninth, Altuve wins it for Houston with two outs in the bottom of the inning.

With the end of the labor deal looming, minor league baseball owners say Major League Baseball’s proposal could result in the loss of 40 teams.

Aaron Hicks’s three-run homer in the first inning and six solid innings from James Paxton gave New York a 4-1 victory.

George Springer’s three-run homer gets Houston started in 8-3 win that gives Astros 3-1 lead in series.

Houston Manager A.J. Hinch says there's no sign-stealing going on, but that “pitch-tipping is a little bit of a different story."

In May, Dave Martinez’s job as Nationals manager was in doubt. In October, he has Washington in the World Series.

Washington, by virtue of its NLCS sweep, will be rested for Game 1 of the World Series. The American League participant may not be able to say the same.
