If you are not watching the World Series yet you should. Not a huge sports fan, you should still be turning it on.
Here’s a recap of the weekends Games.
Game 3 Houston won 5-3
Yu Darvish (LAD) was knocked out of the game in the 2nd inning by allowing 4 runs. McCullers Jr (HOU) went 5.1 innings allowing 3 earned runs. The story of this game, unfortunately, became about Houston’s Yuli Gurriel mocking struggling Dodgers pitcher Darvish. He has received a 4- game suspension to begin at the start of next year.
Houston was leading the series 2-1
Game 4 Dodgers won 6-2
Dodgers Alex Wood went 5.2 innings and gave up only 1 earned run and 3 strikeouts. Houston’s Charlie Morton also pitched well going to the 6th inning and also giving up only 1 earned run and striking out 7. The Dodgers won it in the 9th inning by scoring 5.
The Dodgers tied the series 2-2
Game 5 Houston won 13-12 in 10 innings
This game was insane! It matched Kershaw and Keuchel again who in Game 1 were almost unhittable. Both offenses had their way for this game. There were a total of 28 hits in the game between the two teams. Kershaw, the best pitcher in baseball, only went 4.2 innings and allowed 6 earned runs and only 2 strikeouts. Keuchel did even worse going only 3.2 innings and giving up 3 earned runs and 4 strikeouts.
This was a game of offense and answers. The Dodgers went up by 3 in the 1st inning. Houston was able to come back and tie the game in the 4th. Both teams scored 3 in the 5th to put the game at 7-7. Houston scored 4 in the 7th inning. The Dodgers were able to come back and tie it in the 9th at 12-12. Houston won it with a Bregman single in the 10th.
Houston is leading the series 3-2.
Game 6 is Tuesday 10/31 in Los Angeles
7 pm on FOX
Preview to come
Apparently bunting is a lost art in MLB.
Agreed. All any hitter is trying to do these days is hit a Home Run. There’s no other strategy.
[…] Justin Verlander is 10-0 since being traded to the Houston Astros with a 1.53 ERA. Astros 3rd basemen Alex Bregman summed up the Astros feelings about Game 6 like this, “We’ve got Justin Verlander going for us in two days.” And they should be confident with that. But the Dodgers were feeling pretty much the same two days ago when they put Clayton Kershaw on the mound and this is how he fared. […]
[…] got throttled in his last start going only 5 outs in Game 3 (although he had 49 pitches). But Darvish is a great […]
