HOUSTON -- As the top of the seventh inning of World Series Game 6 unfolded on Tuesday night, an unexpected sight rose from his seat in the visitors’ bullpen. Max Scherzer stretched and played a light game of catch, while those with clear sight lines began speculating about what it might mean. Scherzer was the Nationals’ probable starter for Game 7, but they had to get there first.

Ultimately, the Nationals scored two runs that inning to back Stephen Strasburg in a 7-2 win over the Astros to force Game 7 on Wednesday night. Scherzer reclaimed his seat, his warmup amounting to nothing more than what teammate Sean Doolittle called “a dry run.” Two days after the Nats scratched him from a start due to neck spasms, Scherzer asked his teammates if he looked as strong as he felt. To a man, they expressed their approval.
