Game Five of the 2017 World Series will go down as one of the most incredible games to have been played since the series first took place back in 1903.
You have the greatest pitcher of this generation going for the Los Angeles Dodgers in Clayton Kershaw, and they gave him a four run lead early on. There was some stat out there about how Kershaw had been unbeatable with a four run lead.
So he promptly gives up four runs to allow Houston to tie the game. This was in the fourth inning.
In the fifth inning, the Dodgers strike three more on the board to take a 7-4 lead. The Astros would not be deterred at they bounced back with three more runs of their own to once again tie the game.
In the 7th, the Dodgers would once again take the lead The Astros, tired of having to keep coming back to tie the game, decided to plate four runs to take an 11-8 advantage heading into the 8th inning, an inning in which both teams scored a run apiece to make it 12-9, in favor of the Astros heading into the 9th inning.
Then the Dodgers were able to claw together three runs to miraculously tie the game at 12 and forced extra innings.
Unfortunately for them and to the excitement of everyone not rooting for Los Angeles, the Houston Astros walked off in the bottom of the 10th inning to take Game 5 and a 3-2 advantage in the series.
What a game.
