Three of the 10 innings of Sunday night’s World Series game didn’t have any scoring. Five innings had a crooked number, including the sixth when both the Astros and Dodgers scored three runs.
It was a crazy game to say the least.
Houston took a 12-9 lead into the ninth inning, and given what had transpired the previous eight innings, you kind of knew that lead wasn’t safe. Sure enough, Yasiel Puig hit a two-run homer as the Dodgers scored three times, tying the game.
Houston eventually won Game 5 of the World Series 13-12 in 10 innings, but not everyone stayed up to watch all 5 hours and 17 minutes.
