The 2017 World Series was filled with highlights and memorable moments. It  went down to a game 7 and crowned a team for the first time in their franchise history.

Game 1 showcased a pitching gem from Dodgers ace, Clayton Kershaw. Kershaw allowed just 1 run and 3 hits in 7 innings pitched. The Dodgers scored 1 run in the 1st on a Chris Taylor home run. They scratched across two more runs in the 6th to conclude the scoring in the game. The Dodgers took game 1 with a 3-1 win.

Game 2 featured the dominant Astros’ pitcher Justin Verlander, but did not pitch a well enough game against the Dodgers. Even though the Astros scored the first run of the game in the third inning, the Dodgers came back scoring 3 runs in the 5th and 6th inning. Astros were making a comeback scoring 1 run in both the 8th and the 9th, leading them  to extra innings. After both teams scored 2 runs in the 10th inning, Astros’ outfielder George Springer, hit a 2-run home run to cap things off in game 2. The series is tied up at 1-1.

The Astros scored a lot of early runs in game 3, jumping out to a 4-0 lead in just the 2nd inning. The usually dominant Yu Darvish was forced out of the game very early on. The Dodgers bullpen did a very good job and only allowed 1 run the rest of the game. The Dodgers tried to battle back but were only able to score 3 runs and fell short in a 5-3 loss. The Astros lead the series 2 games to 1.

The start of game 4 was a stalemate leading up to the bottom of the 6th. Astros’ pitcher Charlie Morton pitched a great game with 7 strikeouts but was scored on in the 7th and taken out of the game. Tied 1-1 in the top of the 9th, the Dodgers’ bats exploded, scoring 5 runs to win the game. The series is tied again at 2-2.  

Game 5 was a very popular game among fans. The game lasted a total of 5 hours and 17 minutes. The game went back and forth all the way up to the 9th inning, where the Dodgers were facing a 3 run deficit and somehow found a way to battle back and forced the game to extra innings. It finally ended with a walkoff single from Alex Bregman. This put the Astros one win away from their first World Series title.

With Houston wanting to end it all, the Dodgers needed to force a game 7 to win a world series. The Astros scored first in the 3rd inning, while, the Dodgers haven’t scored the whole game finally put up 2 runs in the 6th. Dodgers’ hitter Joc Pederson capped it off with monstrous home run in the 7th. The final score being 3-1 Dodgers have forced a game 7.
