Astros on brink of title

A MASTERFUL pitching performance from Houston ace Gerrit Cole sparked the Astros to a 7-1 victory over the Washington Nationals on Sunday, lifting them to the brink of their second World Series title in three seasons. Yordan Alvarez, Carlos Correa and George Springer each smacked two-run homers as the Astros seized a 3-2 lead in Major League Baseball’s best-of-seven final. Cole struck out nine and surrendered only one run on three hits over seven innings as the Nationals dropped a third straight home game.
