Tonight is another travel day as the World Series is heading back to Chavez Ravine for another fun and promising Game 6. It’s going to be hard to top Game 5 though!
The game looked like it would swing in the Dodgers favor with their ace on the hill. They jumped out to an early lead and Kershaw looked like he had it in cruise control but endured a four run fourth to allow Houston to tie the game.
The Dodgers answered with a Cody Bellinger three-run homer but Jose Altuve hit a three-run bomb of his own to tie up the game once again. They were tied until George Springer misplayed a ball in center that turned into an RBI triple for Bellinger.
Was that the decisive blow for the Dodgers? Of course not. Springer tied the game back up with a solo shot to make it eight all in bottom of the seventh, followed by a Altuve double to give the ‘Stros a 9-8 lead. Carlos Correa then launched a two-run shot to give the team 11 runs on the evening and some breathing room.
After Brian McCann hit a home run to give the Astros another insurance run, the Dodgers tied the game up at 12 in the ninth, but in the bottom half of the 10th, Houston scraped out a 13-12 victory.
WHAT A GAME!
