Astros Take Down Dodgers In Wild Game Five
(Houston, TX) — The Fall Classic is becoming an apt moniker for the 2017 World Series. Alex Bregman hit a walk-off RBI single in the bottom of the 10th to lift the Astros to a 13-12 win over the Dodgers in Game Five at Minute Maid Park. Houston and Los Angeles traded punches as the ‘Stros took a three-to-two lead in the best-of-seven matchup. The Dodgers erased a three-run deficit in the top of the ninth inning on a two-run homer by Yasiel Puig and Chris Taylor’s game-tying RBI single. The Astros smashed five home runs, including game-tying three-run shots by Yuli Gurriel and Jose Altuve in the fourth and fifth innings, respectively. Cody Bellinger’s three-run bomb had given the Dodgers a 7-4 lead in the fifth. It looked like Houston had taken control of the game with a four-run seventh. George Springer’s solo shot tied the game at eight and Jose Altuve one-run double put the Astros up one. Carlos Correa’s two-run homer made it a three-run game. LA closer Kenley Jansen was tagged with the loss. Game six is Tuesday in Los Angeles.
