The Astros just did not get it done last night. Disappointment all around. Wood did not have his best stuff, and Houston could not take advantage, and that was the difference. The thing is, you have to get to your opponent early, and it didn't happen. The bullpen wasn't much better, either, as L.A. exploited the Astros' vulnerabilities. You can't come back from a five-run deficit with three outs to go. As a result, the Astros cannot wrap up the World Series in front of their home fans.

Tonight, we face Kershaw again. Now, Kershaw does have a history of playoff bombs, so don't be surprised if he doesn't have his best stuff this evening. That's highly unlikely, however, but the Astros' bats must come out and come out blazing, and the defense must remain sharp against L.A.'s hitters, or the team will be in big trouble when they go back to Los Angeles.

The game they won in LA was harder than hell to do, without Kershaw on the mound. I'm a little worried for the Stro's. Maybe they need to bring the orange out.
You think Kershaw is going to start today and on Wednesday on two days rest?

Before Giles threw his first pitch in the 9th, I truly said to myself....Hinch should be staying with Devenski.

Exactly. Hinch lost that game.

The offense also lost that game. Why? They had a couple of opportunities against Alex Wood earlier in the game, and he didn't look sharp at all. Had they been able to score, the latter innings might have looked very different.

Awesome win in Game 5! Whew! Never thought the Astros could come back like they have, but that was just a see-saw battle, and it ended with an epic finish.

Now, it's on to Los Angeles for Game 6, and hopefully, Houston can finish things up tonight. It's Verlander time. If the offense gets going early and keeps L.A. at bay, then we've got a chance.

You're just too amped up. I'd like to be watching game six right now as well.

Tonite was the Astros chance in game 6 with Verlander on the bump

The offense didn't back him in anyway. No hits at all with RISP

Was a good run Houston ... better luck next year as LA wins game #7 tomorrow nite
