Watch World Series Game 5 Washington Nationals vs Houston Astros live
It's 2 games apiece in the MLB World Series and now Nationals ace Max Scherzer is injured. Here's how you can watch the pivotal Game 5.
After not being able to split the pair through the first four games, the World Series now comes down to a best of three, beginning with Game 5. Houston have stolen back the momentum and home-field advantage after winning the last two games.
Most impressive was the ease in which the Astros won Game 4, 8-1. The Astros became just the third team to win Games 3 and 4 on the road of the World Series after dropping the opening 2 games at home.

MLB World Series game 5 preview
In what is a huge blow to the Washington Nationals, superstar pitcher Max Scherzer has been ruled out due to back spasms. It will now be Joe Ross taking up the mound with the ball in hand for the Nationals.
It's a daunting task that Ross will be given as the star-studded Astros batting line-up has started to find some form. After a cold start in the World Series, Astros' Alex Bregman was back to his best in Game 4, capped off by his grand slam which put the icing on the cake.
The difference between having Ross pitching instead of Scherzer is noteworthy, especially now the Astros have all the wind in their sails. Game 5 is simply the Astros' to lose.
When is Game 5?
Game 5 of the World Series starts at 11:07am AEDT on 28 October. Game 5 of the World Series is again at Nationals Park, Washington.
