The Washington Nationals were pegged back in the first World Series game in the US capital since 1933, losing 4-1 to the Houston Astros in game three.

His replacement Fernando Rodney, the oldest active player in the majors at 42, prevented any further damage after three walks and a stolen base had loaded the bases for Houston after Chirinos’ homer.

But the Astros bullpen shut out the hosts for the last four innings to record their first win of the series.

Game four is on Saturday evening (01:00 BST on Sunday) when the Astros, lacking a traditional fourth starter on their roster, will utilise a “bullpen game”, sharing out duties between their relievers.
