Astros One Win Away From Earning World Series History
And it wouldn't be true to the nature of a Houston sports team if it didn't come with a heaping helping of nerve wracking tension.
And then it got crazy. Yuli Gurriel smacked a three run homer that tied the game in the bottom of the fourth at 4-4, only to have the Dodgers go back in front in the top of the fifth after Bellinger hit a three run homer to put the Dodgers back up 7-4.
The Dodger went back up 8-7 in the top of the seventh after George Springer's diving attempt at a sinking line drive by Bellinger got past him for a triple that scored Kiki Hernandez from first base.
Can't wait to see if Game 6 in Los Angeles will be a trick or a treat Astros fans have been waiting for since 1962. I like our chances with Justin Verlander pitching for us and the best offense in baseball now awake at the right time.
