Game 5 of the 2017 World Series will be remembered as one of the best games the sport has ever seen.
It took more than five hours to finish, and when it ended in the early hours of Monday morning, the Houston Astros had defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers 13-12 in 10 innings to move within one win from the franchise’s first championship. In the video above, Michaela Vernava fills you in on everything you missed while you were sleeping, presented by Bedgear.
Astros third baseman Alex Bregman sent fans at Minute Maid Park home happy when he hit a walk-off, RBI single off Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen in the 10th inning to score Derek Fisher from second base and give Houston a 3-2 series lead.
This game was absolutely insane, featuring clutch hits and crazy lead changes on both sides — including a three-run comeback by the Dodgers in the ninth inning to force extras. Here’s a snapshot of all the action.
The series now shifts to Dodger Stadium, where Game 6 will be played Tuesday night.
