Washington ace Max Scherzer was scratched because of neck pain, and Houston took advantage of it for a 7-1 win in Game 5 of the World Series Sunday night.

The win means that the road  team has won each game of the WS so far and that Houston heads back to Texas with a 3 games to 2 lead in the series after having been down 0-2.

Scherzer got shots for the neck pain, and the Nats are hopeful that he can go in Game 7 if there is a Game 7. Sot

Gerrit Cole pitched 7 innings, giving up 1 run (Juan Soto HR), 3 hits, 9 K for the win.

Yordan Alvarez, Carlos Correa and George Springer each had 2-run HRs.

Game 6 is Tuesday night in Houston.
