This Series already has had two such melodramatic "swing games" that could have gone either team's way in a dozen crisis moments. The Dodgers, meanwhile, are looking for their first championship since 1988 when Tommy Lasorda was managing, Orel Hershiser was the ace and Kirk Gibson hit the clutch home run. Newcombe and Lasorda are now special advisors to the chairman with the Dodgers. Alex Wood took a no-hitter into the sixth inning in Game 4 and three-time Cy Young victor Clayton Kershaw is ready and willing to make the fifth playoff relief appearance of his career. There are only a few franchises that can really relate to having the tradition and the name recognition that we have. So what time should you tune in?
Game 7 is set for 7:20pm on Wednesday.
In division three boy's soccer, a thriller of a game for Halloween ended in upset as fourth-seeded Peoples Academy scored a 2-1 overtime win against the top-seeded Winooski Spartans on a goal by Max Carr.
The Los Angeles Dodgers forced a Game 7 on Tuesday night with a 3-1 victory in Game 6.
But Alex Anthopoulos, the vice-president of baseball operations for the Los Angeles Dodgers was saying that and more late on Tuesday night.
The Dodgers would likely prefer to get through this game using only Darvish, Kershaw, and Jansen, so the Astros will need to strike early and often if they want to throw off Dave Roberts' game plan. But there is - Sports Illustrated came out with an article a couple of days ago that said the balls used in the World Series actually are slicker than the balls they use in the regular season.
The greatest testament to Game 5 and to the delicious madness of the whole Astros-Dodgers maelstrom in the World Series is that the players themselves can hardly believe what they, and their opponents, are accomplishing.
The Astros haven't won a title in 56 seasons of existence, while the Dodgers haven't raised the trophy in 29 years.
Los Angeles will attempt to become the 23rd team to rally from a 3-2 deficit to win the World Series.
Yu Darvish will be looking for redemption after turning in the shortest start of his big league career in Houston last week.
Case in point, two of the first six games in this series went into extra innings after a team erased a ninth-inning deficit. "You even appreciated the heartbreaks, because for every 1977 and 1978, when they lost, they were right back in it in 1981". This has been a classic series, as good as they come, and it's fitting to have it go the full seven before a victor is crowned. The lead bumped up to 3-1.
Championships are the only currency worth anything in Los Angeles.
He isnt alone. So far, the series has offered thrills and high-wire drama, a record number of home runs and too many comebacks to list. First pitch is scheduled for 5:20 p.m. The Dodgers can't lose tonight, or they are out.
For most baseball games, picking a victor starts and ends with the starting pitching matchup. Joc Pederson padded the Dodgers' lead with a solo blast off Joe Musgrove in the seventh. Both teams have had offensive explosions, and both teams have had pitching implosions. "They never forget that".
