Wow. The Dodgers pitches really stink. The offense staked Kershaw to a 4-0 lead, and he gives it all back, most of it on a 3-run homer. Then the Dodgers get a 3-run homer of their own ... only to have Maeda give it back on another 3-run homer.

I thought it was ridiculous that after Kershaw's good Game 1 performance, some people were talking as though Kershaw had erased his long history of bad postseason performances with a single good outing. Then he gets crushed tonight. So much for his big "turnaround."

I think Dave Roberts forgot he was managing and could take his pitcher out

The Dodgers pitchers are terrible right now, and they may have just handed the series to Houston. Kershaw and Jansen really showing 'em.

I wonder how many Astros fans realize the origins of the Beat LA chant

Haha. Maybe.

As a Celtics fan, a sense of pride warms over me every time I hear that chant. We should all be proud of it, even those fans, like myself, who were born after that chant was first uttered.

Astros up 5-0 in the 4th (they started off HOT).

If results hold... then last three WS Champs will be Royals, Cubs, and Astros.

I love baseball lol.  :laugh:

But seeing how this series has gone, wouldn't surprise me if Dodgers had a 6-run inning soon  :P

Wow. Astros win Game 7 and World Champion in LA. What a series.

Although, that should have been the Celtics in 2010 winning at Staples Center in Game 7.

Ah well.

Big win for the Astros and big win for the city of Houston. I hope that this provides some light for those down on their luck from the hurricane.
