World Series, Game 5

And you thought Game 2 was good. Game 5 from Minute Maid Park had some 43,000 fans – not to mention the television audience – twisting and turning for an incredible five hours, 17 minutes, before Alex Bregman took out the Dodgers with a 10th inning walk-off single for a 13-12 win and a 3-2 series lead. That was just the exclamation point. It started as a duel between Houston’s Dallas Keuchel and Los Angeles’ Clayton Kershaw.  What happened? What didn’t? Five Astros’ home runs. Three times they had to  come from behind – twice by three runs. Even the players were shaking their heads. It was loud and crazy, exhausting and exhilarating.  A total of 417 pitches, seven homeruns and the second highest scoring game in World Series history.
