HOUSTON — With their fading World Series hopes dependent on a strong pitching performance against the Atlanta Braves, the Houston Astros announced Tuesday that they would start Nolan Ryan in Game 6 on 10,268 days of rest. “We try to be really careful not to overwork our pitchers to keep them fresh with the series on the line, and Nolan has not appeared in a game since September 22, 1993, so he should be ready to go.” said Astros manager Dusty Baker, adding that the longtime Astros pitcher looked sharp in a light pitching session with his grandson 15 years ago. “You can win a World Series with a fresh arm like Nolan on the mound as he has had over 4,000 matches free plus the strike-shortened 1994 season and the Covid-shortened 2020 season. His stuff should really benefit. Especially because we are down with a couple of guys with Framber [Valdez] unavailable after fighting in game 5 and Phil [Maton] gives us relief-innings two games in a row, we really expect Nolan to go out there and get us through the Braves row at least twice. However, if we are to pull him out early, we hope Bob Knepper will be able to help us with 11,454 days of rest. ” days of rest for a pitcher was too much rest or not enough rest.
