‘The Best in Sports’ is a daily PSO original series showcasing the best highlights, facts, and stories going on in the land of the NFL, NBA, & MLB every day. Get a recap on EVERYTHING that happened yesterday here

Here is the best from October 29, 2019:

While the Nats held a 3-2 lead thanks to Eaton & Soto’s 5th inning HRs, the game looked like it was about to get broken open when the Nats had two runners in scoring position with no outs, and the heart of the lineup coming up in the 7th. However, a questionable interference call at 1B mitigated the damage and appeared to open the game up for Houston to come back and claim their second Championship in three years. Instead, Anthony Rendon delivered the biggest HR of the year that made what could be a season-altering statement: BALL DON’T LIE!

While Anthony Rendon earned Player of the Day honors with his 5 RBI’s, Stephen Strasburg wasn’t far behind thanks to his masterful Game 6 start. The control of his pitches after the 1st inning allowed him to go deep in the ballgame and empower Davey Martinez with ALL hands on deck in Game 7.
