In the World Series, the Houston Astros took a 2-1 game lead over the Los Angeles Dodgers with a 5-3 win at home on Friday, but the Dodgers evened the best-of-seven series up at two games apiece with a 6-2 win on Saturday night - the first time that the Astros have lost at home during this year’s postseason.

Then, in game five last night, in what can only be described as a five-hour-plus slugfest in which the lead went back and forth and back and forth and into extra innings, the Astros pulled out a 13-12 defeat of the Dodgers. The Series now returns to Los Angeles on Tuesday night, with the Astros holding a 3-2 series lead.
