Pretty hard to put the blame on him alone. On any other given day, allowing only 2 runs would be a great outing.

There is plenty of blame to put on the 9 guys doing the batting! Why didnt they get more runs?

2 of the greatest words in the English language - Game Seven!

The pivotal game - statistics show that the winner of Game 7 has gone on to win the series 100% of the time (and yeah, that includes the 2 times the World Series went best-of-9)

Game 6 is more typical of a WS game pitchers' duel

Dodgers' Kershaw was supposed to win Game 4, but his team lost

Astros' Verlander was supposed to win Game 5 (his ERA in previous series-clinching games: 0.00), but his team lost

So both times the team that's supposed to win instead lost

Darvish starts in Game 7

This is actually just the first ever WS Game 7 at Dodgers Stadium (the previous 2 times were at Brooklyn's Ebbets Field - lost both against the Yankees)

Verlander didn't pitch badly. With fiancée Kate Upton watching in an Astros jacket with throwback rainbow colors

That's what people watch for, lol

Yu Darvish should start tomorrow's game. Perhaps he can pitch the Dodgers to a World Series victory.

@Yubaru, the Astros hit more than the Dodgers in Game 6. But when those hits aren't consecutive/ extra bases/ home runs it is hard to win. Super exciting game 7 tomorrow--will be sure to tune in!

Before they were the Astros, they were the Houston Colt .45s, and they were in the National League. I saw Drysdale beat them at Dodger Stadium, a few years back.

@1glenn, amazing story from a good half century ago. When you said Drysdale, it reminded me that just before game 6, LA manager Roberts was shown hugging a woman in a Drysdale jersey that was presumably his daughter (or else a spry looking wife/widow).

Last time two 100+ win teams went to WS Game 7 was way back in 1932, even before WW2

Tonight's game will decide WS winner, Astro with its hitters may win. Not over yet.

The stadium was full with fans of both teams. They skipped Halloween going, Each HR, money will be donated to hurricane victims.

No one is blaming the Astro pitcher as he handled Turner very well.
