The Astros will try to win their first ever championship in Game 6 of the World Series, which starts at 8 PM ET at Dodger Stadium on Tuesday night. The two clubs are back in a National League park, which means no DH. The Astros’ Justin Verlander will square off against the Dodgers’ Rich Hill.

Josh Reddick has been moved back down in the Astros’ lineup after going hitless across eight plate appearances in Games 4 and 5. For the Dodgers, Logan Forsythe gets the start at second after Charlie Culberson started there in Game 5. Justin Turner returns to third base.

Report: Momentum in talks between Mariners, Jon Jay

MLB.com’s Mark Feinsand reports that there is some momentum in talks between the Mariners and free agent outfielder Jon Jay.

Jay, 32, hit .296/.374/.375 in 433 plate appearances with the Cubs last season, which is adequate. He’s heralded more for his defense and his ability to play all three outfield spots.

The Mariners are losing center fielder Jarrod Dyson to free agency and likely don’t want to rely on Guillermo Heredia next season, hence the interest in Jay. The free agent class for center fielders is otherwise relatively weak.
