Watch 2019 MLB World Series Game 7 live and free in Australia
Game 7 is the final game of the 2019 MLB World Series. Can the Nationals win their first ever World Series or will the Astros collect their second?
It has all come down to this, the ultimate dream of all baseball fans: Game 7. The 2019 World Series between the Houston Astros and Washington Nationals has been a rollercoaster to say the least.
So far during the World Series it has shockingly been the road team winning every game. ESPN Stats & Info tweeted that this is the first time it has ever happened in any of the major American sports leagues.
Should that then make the Washington Nationals favourites to win Game 7, as they're the away team? Who knows, but one thing's for certain, star pitcher Max Scherzer's availability is a huge boost for the Nationals.

MLB World Series Game 7 preview
The importance of the pitchers in Game 7 can't be stressed enough. It'll be Zack Greinke of the Houston Astros and Max Scherzer for the Washington Nationals starting on the mound.
Throughout the World Series, both teams have managed to score runs in the early innings. So if one of Greinke or Scherzer can manage not to get hit early on it could go a long way to winning the World Series.
If Game 7 is a tight affair and goes right down to the dying stages, then both sides will have to rely on the other pitchers in the bullpen. This might be more necessary for the Nationals as Max Scherzer is playing his first match since getting injured in Game 1 of the World Series.
That could be an indication of why the Astros start as favourites to win Game 7, as their pitching depth is considered to be greater. You can't write off the Nats whose pitchers have all pitched in so far, pun intended.
