World Series – Game 5 (Series Tied 2-2)

Last night the Dodgers and Astros were locked in a 1-1 pitchers’ duel until the ninth inning. Joc Pederson capped off a five-run ninth to lead the Dodgers to a 6-2 victory and a series tie.

Tonight is a rematch of Game 1 as Clayton Kershaw takes the mound for the Dodgers and Dallas Keuchel does the same for the Astros. In their last matchup both delivered quality starts, but Kershaw got the win as he dazzled with seven innings of one-run ball.
