Just in case you needed more proof than the results of Game 7 to know that A.J. Hinch blew it by taking Zack Greinke out in the seventh, just listen to what Howie Kendrick said.
The 2019 World Series documentary has been released, and it includes an interview with Kendrick. Kendrick was coming to the plate when Houston removed Greinke and replaced him with reliever Will Smith. Kendrick hit a 2-run home run off Smith to give the Nationals a 3-2 lead and completely change the game. They went on to win 6-2.
