Good morning everyone and welcome to the Minor League Ball World Series prediction thread for Game Six. On Sunday we predicted that the Houston Astros would defeat the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game Five, with Dallas Keuchel out-dueling Clayton Kershaw in a 3-2 win.
We were completely wrong about the nature of the game; it was a slugfest rather than a pitcher’s duel, but the outcome was correct with the Astros winning 13-12 in ten innings. This brings our post-season prediction record for 2017 to 22-12.
The series shifts back to Los Angeles tonight, with the Dodgers trying to stave off elimination by sending Rich Hill to the mound against Justin Verlander.
It is hard to bet against the Astros ace at this point but I’ve felt all along that this series would go seven games and I’ll stick with that.
The Dodgers will pull this one out, 3-1.
What say you?
