Nat'ls go up 2-0 at World Series

The Washington Nationals crushed the Houston Astros 12-3 last night in Houston to go up 2-0 in the World Series, taking the first two games on the road before now heading home. Both teams scored two runs in the first inning and they stayed locked in a 2-2 tie until Washington broke out with six runs in the seventh innings. They added another three runs in the eighth and one in the ninth, with Houston answering with just one run in the ninth inning. Nationals pitcher Stephen Strasburg gave up two runs over six innings to get the win, outpitching fellow ace Justin Verlander of the Astros, who gave up four runs before being taken out in the seventh inning. Despite losing, Verlander reached a career milestone, striking out six to become the leader in postseason strikeouts with 202, passing Jon Smoltz's 199. Game 3 will be played Friday night in D.C.


Plus you figure Verlander is alright either way since he's pretty ok at home...
