Max Fried vs. Jose Urquidy tonight. Fried had a less-than-stellar effort in game 5 of the NLCS but he maintains a postseason ERA of 3.78.  Urquidy's postseason ERA is 27.00, but Atlanta cannot take that lightly.

Jorge Soler is the first player to hit a homer in his first World Series appearance. The Astros are 0-4 in game 1 WS appearances.


In addition to that, with Jorge Soler's homerun, it is the first time in Fall Classic history where the series started off with a home run.  Now there have been leadoff homeruns in the World Series over the past century & then some.  However, those were done between Games 2-7.  There may have been one by the home team in Game 1 in the past.  This is the first time after 117 years or seasons where the very first batter opened the World Series with a HR; the very first batter being a member of the visiting team in Game One

I thought it was A interesting concept, The show had way too many flaws for it to work. You need two hosts that click and gel well together or one strong host to host the show. In a perfect world Gene and Peter Marshall would of worked well together. I think the later years of Match Game was tired and Gene seemed cranky and bored most of the time.


Hollywood Squares segment should've used the original style questions and bluffs. I thought it was too serious and lacking the fun the original version had. They should've used secret squares and brought the fun atmosphere back. The Match Game segment was a lot better.

Match Game 90 wasn't bad and i wasn't a fan of the 98 version and the 2016 version. They did had good celebrities on the show. I thought Baldwin was a bad host.

Our NBC station aired MG-HS up till January of 1984 then bumped it for Little House on the Prairie repeats. Wasn't awful but wasn't something I'd have set a VCR for.

I always wondered if viewers were supposed to root for the Gladiators or the contenders.

I wish we had heard more from Donell than the two one bidS. He sounds like Barry White.

He also was apparently a contestant in 1984.

So...we have most of the shows from 1984 now.  Anyone recognize Donnell?

Overall I enjoyed it.  It was pretty much pimped as "Two of your favorites classics come together as one".  It was a nice treat back in the 80s, and then even when it was scarce with a few clips and even less episodes circulating somewhere in the late 90s to early 2000s, it was a joy.

I'll admit it was overrated.  I said as much elsewhere.  Probably was worth the risk back in the day, but not necessary either.  To be fair, future Match Game revivals have been anything other than successful, whereas future HS revivals were a hit.

MGHSH isn't in my Top Ten, I don't think, but it was far from the worst thing on television.  The structure was a mess; not a fan of being one question away from a possible win only to get buzzed out (Hollywood Squares segment).  If the two were ever to come together, I'm sure Fremantle or whomever would do a much better job as it relates to structure.  The hosts? That would be a toss up
