The Astros aren’t out of the World Series just yet.
Houston was on the brink of elimination after falling behind three games to one to the Braves with a game still left to play in Atlanta. It fell behind 4-0 after the first inning of Game 5 but then bounced all the way back to win 9-5 and bring the series back to Texas for Game 6 on Tuesday.
The Astros will turn to rookie Luis Garcia to try to push this series to a full seven games. Garcia allowed a run on three hits and four walks in 3 2/3 innings in Game 3, but in his previous postseason outing, he pitched 5 2/3 scoreless innings against Boston in Game 6 of the ALCS to help clinch the pennant for Houston. This postseason, he has a 7.62 overall ERA.

Atlanta is handing the ball to Max Fried, who struggled in his Game 2 start. He allowed six runs on seven hits and a walk over five innings. Prior to that outing, however, he had pitched to a 3.78 ERA in three postseason starts.
