LOS ANGELES — Now the World Collection can get actually loopy.
Positive, Justin Verlander, the Astros ace, can be on the mound. He was delivered to Houston to win the World Collection, and he can do exactly that at Dodger Stadium on Tuesday night time, when he faces Dodgers lefty Wealthy Hill in Recreation 6 (eight:20 p.m., FOX) with the Astros holding a three-2 lead.
