    With most other series, I would have thought their failure in the fifth to capitalize with runners at second and third, nobody out, pretty much doomed them. I was bummed, but then remembered, "New TV!" Looking forward to tonight's game which I hope is a fitting end to a great series.

    The momentum in the series has supposedly made its decisive turn about 5 times. Each time the other team snatched the momentum back. Even as a Dodgers fan I'm calling tonight's game a tossup. Both teams are just so good.

    Yup! There is no guarantee. The Astros lineup scares the hell out of me.

    Poor Yu Darvish. Bad karma for Dodgers fans to keep booing Gurriel after he tipped his helmet to apologize.

    Definitely still not out of reach for LAD though.

    I didn’t care who won until I just saw my DB neighbor’s wife just post a photo of them at the game decked out in Dodger gear for the second time this series.

    Go Astros!

    Watching the first part of the game in a sports bar at Huntington Beach. This part of the OC is not a huge baseball area.
    Pretty skittish pitching so far.

    No doubt. I’d think a 5-0 lead is pretty safe but in this series that can evaporate pretty quickly.

    This game reminds me of game 6 only with the teams swapped. Dodgers get plenty on base but can't seem to score. Astros aren't getting the hits but are putting up the runs. The series has been great but hopefully this one ends at the bottom of the 9th.

    Upon rejecting the Beatles, Dick Rowe told Brian Epstein of the January 1, 1962 audition for Decca, which signed Brian Poole and the Tremeloes instead.

    I won't say Davish cost LA the series, but he sure had a bad one!

    Im biased but it is great for the city after the flooding from Harvey. The Astros have a large and loyal following in houston and this season was a fun ride. I actually find myself liking them a lot more after their move to the AL since they aren’t in the same league as the Pirates. Minute Maid Park was packed last night and downtown has been rocking all week. I’m looking forward to the parade.

    On your Darvish comment He sucked this series and basically gave game 7 away. His pitches looked like the all hung over the plate just waiting for someone to smash it.

    Once nice thing about his series finally being over is I’ll finally stop hearing MJ day how cute Altuve is like he’s some 6 year old kid. Granted, he’s very short and plays with the enthusiasm of a kid, but the guy is a total gamer and the heart of the franchise right now. It was great to have him get the final out of the series.

    As a Dodger fan...ooof!

    Congrats to the Astros.

    Considering Guriel's "apology" I thought this clip was appropriate...if not funny.

    I think the Dodgers main problem was they couldn't get consistent hitting. It seems that they either hit a home run or made an out, with the outs predominating. That is a tribute to the Astro's staff - they got the outs when they needed to, and the Dodgers did not.
