World Series Game 2: Astros Pull Off Miracle Win in Extra Innings
Nearly a heart attack. That's how it felt watching game 2 of the World Series between the Houston Astros and L.A. Dodgers. Down 3-1 in the 6th, I had resigned myself to thinking "okay, we'll be down 2 games to 0 but the series comes back to Houston on Friday." What a surprise when Carlos Correa homers to cut the lead by 1 leaving some hope to pull out the game.Then Marwin Gonzales hits one to tie it up. Then in the 10th, Jose Altuve and Carlos Correa hit back-to-back homers to take a lead, the Dodgers came back to tie again, and finally in the 11th, George Springer drills a 2-run homer reach the final score of 7-6.
What a game. So far, a tremendous series.
The Astros return home tomorrow night for game 3, Lance McCullers is slated to start for the Astros, his last outing beating the Yankees in game 7 of the ALCS, while the Dodgers will start Yu Darvish, who was aquired from the Texas Rangers back in July. Darvish is 2-0 in postseason with a 1.59 ERA
