Washington Nationals starting pitcher Patrick Corbin was phenomenal for the Nationals on Wednesday in Game 7 of the World Series and was a big reason they won this game. While the Nationals were making their comeback, Corbin was quietly sitting down the Astros and keeping them off the bases. Through three innings, he allowed just two hits while striking out three. He got the recorded win and will forever be in the World Series history books. Corbin proved versatile this series and deserves every bit of praise for this victory. Rejoice Nationals fans!
Washington Nationals starter Patrick Corbin will be available out of the bullpen as the team prepares for Game 7 of the World Series. Corbin won 14 games during the regular season but has struggled in the postseason, posting a 1-3 record with a 6.64 ERA. He allowed four runs in six innings in Game 3 and should be called upon to shut down the Astros left-handed hitters. Corbin allowed a .190 batting average to left-handed hitters during the regular season and could be brought in to face Michael Brantley or Yordan Alvarez.
The Washington Nationals announced starting pitcher Patrick Corbin as their Game 4 starter of the World Series against the Astros on Saturday. Houston might be opposing Corbin with a bit of a bullpen game, depending on what happens in Game 3 on Friday with Houston down by two games. Corbin has given up 11 earned runs in 14 1/3 innings (6.91 ERA) with 10 walks and 28 strikeouts over two starts and four relief outings this postseason. That's not what you want to be looking at going into a matchup with the Astros, even if they are a bit cold at the moment. Houston ranked second in the American League this year with an .868 OPS against southpaws. Corbin won't be a popular DFS pick for Game 4, and he could be on a short leash.
