Game 1. Strat World Series

Left fielder Howie Kendrick homered and had 3 RBI and Max Scherzer mowed down
10 Houston batters as the Washington Nationals bested the Houston Astros 5 to
4 at Nationals Park.

Ryan Madson(1-1) looked good in relief and was the winning pitcher. He gave
up just 1 hit and no walks in 1 inning lowering his ERA to 3.12. Houston
made it exciting in the 9th, but they were unable to push the needed runs
across.

Sean Doolittle earned his 5th save. Chris Devenski(3-3) took the loss in
relief. He allowed 1 run and 1 hit in 1/3 of an inning.
