The World Series is back in Houston with game six getting underway tonight. The Astros are putting Luis Garcia on the hill, while the Braves are going with Max Fried. Both will be making their second start of the series. 

Fried would like to bounce back from his first start. The lefty allowed six runs on seven hits in game two, as the Astros were able to manufacture runs without the use of the longball. Fried took the loss in game two with the Astros going on to a 7-2 win. 

Garcia started game three in Atlanta and took the loss in a close 2-0 Braves win. He went just 3.2 innings while surrendering one run on three hits and issued four walks. Overall he's posted a 7.62 ERA in four starts this postseason. 

At the plate Carlos Correa will look to pick up from where he left off in game five where he went 3-for-5 with two RBI's for Houston. The Braves will once again look to Travis d'Arnaud to produce as he is leading the team and the series with a .350 batting average. Atlanta's catcher also has two homers in the series. 

The Astros forced a game six by taking advantage of the inexperience of the Braves' starter Sunday night. Atlanta started 25-year-old Tucker Davidson despite never having pitched in the postseason and his last regular season start was back on June 15th. Davidson went two innings for Atlanta surrendering four runs on two hits and three walks.

Then the Braves usually solid bullpen showed some cracks. The "Night Shift" as Atlanta's bullpen has become known, allowed five runs on 10 hits. A.J. Minter was charged for three runs, while Drew Smyly allowed two.

A Braves win would mean their first World Series title since 1995. 

The Astros are 1.5-run favorites in game six. The over/under is 9 runs. Vegas reportedly has Houston as a -130 favorite (bet $130 to win $100).
