Astros vs. Nationals score: Live World Series Game 3 update…

The Houston Astros lead the Washington Nationals, 4-1, in the sixth inning of World Series Game 3 at Nationals Park. The Astros have the edge thanks to four one-run innings against Nationals starter Anibal Sanchez. In the top of the second, Carlos Correa got the scoring started after he doubled and came home on a bloop single by Josh Reddick. 

In the third inning, Jose Altuve hit a leadoff double to left and advanced to third on Soto’s fielding error. Altuve scored the second run of the game on an infield single by Michael Brantley. In the bottom of the fourth, Ryan Zimmerman, after narrowly missing a home run down the line, worked a walk, and then Victor Robles brought him home with a triple for the Nationals’ first run of Game 3. With one out, Washington manager Davey Martinez opted to let Sanchez hit for himself, and he was unable to put the ball in play. Trea Turner then grounded out, and the potential tying run was stranded at third. 

In the top of the fifth, the Astros reestablished their two-run lead when Michael Brantley singled home Altuve, who had hit a one-out double. Then in the sixth, Robinson Chirinos pushed the lead to 4-1 with a solo home run off Sanchez. The veteran right-hander was lifted later in the inning.

Zack Greinke started for the visiting Astros in what’s basically a must-win for Houston, and he worked 4 2/3 innings of one run ball. Across the way, right-hander Sanchez took mound for the Nats. In his last start, which came two weeks ago, he flirted with a no-hitter against the Cardinals in Game 1 of the NLCS. He didn’t enjoy similar results on Friday. 

Game 3 got started shortly after 8 p.m. and can be streamed with fuboTV (Try for free). Follow along below with live updates, analysis and more from the CBS Sports staff.
