A.J. Hinch told reporters he learned when they did that Max Scherzer wasn’t going to be the one starting for the Washington Nationals in last night’s World Series matchup. As for how it affected the Astros’ preparation for Game 5?
“I think it just affects our preparation a little bit because we got a late notice that they scratched their starter,” Hinch explained.
“It’s happened before to us. So we’ve got to get to working on our game plan against Ross as opposed to what it was against Scherzer.
