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.
