MLB: World Series-Washington Nationals at Houston Astros Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

The road team has won every game in this World Series. The madness ends tonight!

The Astros send their future Hall of Famer, Justin Verlander to finish off the Nationals and bring a second World Series trophy to Houston in the last three years.

The Astros come back home with the coveted “momentum,” having outscored the Nats 19-3 in Washington. The cold bats that plagued the Stros from late September all the way through Game 2 of the World Series, have seemingly heated up. They hope to deliver the final blow to the Nationals tonight.

Here’s the lineups. (per MLB.com)

Nationals: This lineup has been held to one run in three consecutive games for the first time all season. The last time the Nats scored no more than one run in three straight home games was Aug. 6-9, 2016. With the designated hitter back in Houston, Asdrúbal Cabrera returns at second base and Howie Kendrick shifts to the DH spot. Kurt Suzuki remains out of the starting lineup with a right hip injury.

Here is Washington’s lineup:

1) Trea Turner, SS

3) Anthony Rendon, 3B

4) Juan Soto, LF

5) Howie Kendrick, DH

6) Asdrúbal Cabrera, 2B

Astros: Back at Minute Maid Park, Yordan Alvarez returns to the lineup at designated hitter on the heels of his 3-for-3 performance in Game 5, which included a two-run homer. Josh Reddick also is back for the first time since Game 3, as well as Robinson Chirinos, who homered in Games 3 and 4 in Washington.

Here is Houston’s lineup:

1) George Springer, CF

2) José Altuve, 2B
