Verlander, Astros Edge Dodgers In World Series Rematch


Justin Verlander pitched a gem in a hostile environment as the Astros edged by the Dodgers 2-1 in Los Angeles. Verlander racked up 14  strikeouts and pitched into the eighth inning to get the win. George  Springer nailed an RBI-double in the second inning, and Jake Marisnick  scored on an error during the play.  Houston joins Boston as the only  teams in the MLB with 70 wins.  Joc Pederson nailed a leadoff homer for  the Dodgers, but the offense went dry after that.  Alex Wood took the  loss.
