The LA Dodgers score in game two of this years World Series was a 7-6 loss to the Houston Astros. This game went into extra innings. I watched nine innings of this game.
When I left Houston was behind three to two. When I returned to my astonishment, both teams had scored five runs. This started out as another pitchers dual.
Houston Astros starting pitcher Justin Verlander gave up three runs in six innings. However, he held the Los Angeles Dodgers to just two hits. Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher Rich Hill only pitched four innings but gave up just one run.
The Dodgers used nine pitchers including their starter. Houston used five pitchers. This game, Houston’s hitting was much improved.
They out hit the Dodgers fourteen to five. I thought maybe the Los Angeles Dodgers might have problems since they pulled their starting pitcher after only four innings. However, they hit four home runs and drove in five of their six runs via a home run.
Los Angeles scored all of their runs via home run in their first game of this World Series. The Dodgers only had six hits but scored six runs. This is a huge road win for Houston.
As a matter of fact this is their first ever single game World Series win. Houston committed one error, while Los Angeles went error free. This game lasted four hours and nineteen minutes.
The temperature was ten degrees cooler than in game one at ninety three degrees. Houston was behind three runs to one until they scored a run in both the eighth and ninth innings to tie the game at three. Houston and Los Angeles scored two runs in the tenth innning.
Houston scored two more runs in the eleventh inning. Los Angeles scored one run off a solo home run, but could not tie this game. With this best of seven series tied at one, Houston gets to host game three on Friday.
