MLB | Philadelphia 1 @ Houston 4 | 11/06 | 12:03 AM UTC
ANALYSIS: No reason to wait until Saturday, although it's possible Yuli Gurriel can't play for Houston. I'd love to see a Game 7 but by all accounts Zack Wheeler's velocity is way down and the Phillies fear he's wearing down -- hopeful extra rest will fix things temporarily. Obviously it will be all hands on deck if Wheeler is struggling. Wheeler spent a month on the IL with right forearm tendinitis before returning on Sept. 21 so maybe that's back. We have no concerns on Houston's Framber Valdez, who has a 1.42 ERA in these playoffs and held the Phils to one run over 6.1 in Game 2. I may call Mattress Mack for a loan if/when the Stros finish things off.
