In Houston Astros News, they defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers thirteen to twelve in extra innings. This game was a hitters paradise. I watched most of this game.
Ten innings were needed to decide this classic World Series games. I was NOT surprised that the Los Angeles Dodgers would give up this many runs. I blogged about how I felt later on in this series their bullpen has been over extended.
However, I was not really expecting the Houston Astros bullpen to give up so many walks. Also, the Houston Astros had difficulties hitting in game one and game four. They only had five total hits combined in those games.
I was not expecting Houston to go on a hitting barrage. The Houston Astros and Los Angeles Dodgers both had fourteen base hits in this game. They both committed one error.
Houston won with an Alex Bregman single to left field. The Los Angeles Dodgers created a four run lead by the top of the fourth inning. Quite honestly, I thought perhaps Los Angeles would win this game, as Houston was struggling at the plate again..
Houston did not score until the bottom of the fourth inning, when they tied Los Angeles with four runs. This game seemed to sea saw back and forth until the tenth inning. Los Angeles starting pitcher Clayton Kershaw gave up six earned runs in four and two third innings.
Houston Astros starting pitcher Dallas Keuchel gave up three earned runs in three and two third innings. There would be no pitching dual after these starters were pulled. The Houston Astros team used seven pitchers which allowed six walks in ten total innings.
The Los Angeles Dodgers team also used seven pitchers and walked five batters in nine and two third innings pitched. Houston hit five home runs in this game. Los Angeles hit two home runs.
This World Series will include at least six games now. The Houston Astros lead three games to two. Los Angeles hosts the last two games in Dodger Stadium, if the seventh game is needed. Los Angeles faces a possible elimination in both games.
