"They got to dress me up in a lot of heavy armor", Trump said in reference to a bullet-proof vest.
The Astros, seeking a second title in three seasons, are trying to become only the fourth club to drop the first two games at home and rally to win the World Series.
"Yeah, we're fired up", Bregman said.
"We're a good team, you know?"
Trump would be the first sitting president to attend a World Series game since George W. Bush threw out the ceremonial first pitch at New York's Yankee Stadium before Game 3 in 2001.
But his departure opened the door for Washington, as pinch-hitter Gerardo Parra - with the crowd revved up by the "Baby Shark" walk-up music that has made him a cult figure at Nationals Park - drew a walk, but despite loading the bases, the hosts could only manufacture one run. "He's been really good", Martinez said. "I'll try to take advantage of it as much as possible".
Martinez said Soto wasn't rattled when the Nationals played a series in NY against the Yankees previous year.
With three games left, the Astros line up their big three starters, but the best starter on their staff so far has been the young Mexican pitcher who dominated in Game 4. That prompted a players-only meetings after Game 2 and a vow to return to the way they had played for sixth months. Whatever was said apparently worked. "Came in and got treatment and didn't feel quite right", he said. "He was very aggressive early", Hinch said of Soto. "It was his turn to be a catalyst". Their last meeting ended unfavorably for the Astros, who saw Cole pitch to the worst results of his postseason career with five runs, a walk, and six strikeouts scattered over seven innings. Five more relievers finished off the final four innings.
Roberto Osuna heard boos when he entered in the ninth, then got three outs for a save. Scherzer was set for a Game 1 rematch with Gerrit Cole, which he won by tossing five innings of two-run ball. He's allowed one run in 4 1/3 innings. It starts with home-plate umpire Gary Cederstrom, whose strike zone tends to skew on the high side.
"Please, I don't want anyone to be nervous but.anyone has a baseball ball?" "Just in general, when American League teams come into National League parks, there's an inherent disadvantage unless you trade for Zack Greinke, and then maybe you have a little bit of an edge there", Cole said.
Scherzer said the pain started a few days ago and he thought trainers would be able to help him pitch through it. They allowed the aggressive Astros to steal four bases, two by Springer.
Soto, serenaded by fans in left field to celebrate his 21st, was charged with an error for a wild throw home that sailed over the head of Suzuki and a leaping Sanchez, backing up the play. He went down looking to end the game. "We did a great job today of coming out and applying pressure".
Astros: After turning to Urquidy at the start, Hinch is prepared to rely heavily on his bullpen. If he's out the Nats can survive it on offense - his Game 2 homer against Justin Verlander aside his bat has been pretty quiet - but he's lauded for his game-calling and receiving and serves as Game 5 starter Max Scherzer's personal catcher. In the regular season, he went 2-1 with a 3.95 ERA.
