Good to see some baseball. It will be interesting to see if the Dodgers can win the series. I felt they were the better team in the series last year. (We will ignore this year so far)

Thanks for the comment. Game 2 was a different animal than Game 1

Won;t use as much detail this time. Houston (Verlander) vs. LA (Hill). Verlander's time with the Astros, pro-rated out to 200IP is very formidable.

Top 1 -- Seager makes a great play at short on Bregmann and Hill fans the other 2.

Bottom 1 -- Turner walks but nothing else against Verlander.

Top 2 -- With 1 out Gurriel singles but gets picked off by Hill.

Bottom 2 -- 2 Ks and a ground out.

Top 3 -- Gonzalez singles, moves to second one out later on a grounder and dies at second when Springer flies out.

Bottom 3 -- Taylor singles with 2 outs and steals second but Seager fans.

Top 4 -- Bregman homers to lead it off. Altuve doubles for his first hit but next 3 fan.

Bottom 4 -- Two grounds outs and whiff.

Top 5 -- Hill runs strike out string to five straight before Verlander ends it with a pop to Seager.

Bottom 5 -- A pop fly and two Ks.

Top 6 -- Pop fly, ground out and Bregman hits it on the screws but right at Bellinger.

Bottom 6 -- Taylor singles again and steals again. Seager singles to tie the game at 1-1. Turner grounds into a DP.

Top 7 -- After Correa whiffs against reliever Baez, Gurriel doubles. Another strikeout and Gonzalez walks. Avilan comes in and retires Reddick on a deep fly out to right.

Bottom 7 -- Nothing much for Dodgers with a pop fly and two strikeouts. Nine whiffs for Verlander in 7.

Top 8 -- Wasted chances for Astros. Aoki hits for Verlander and singles in the infield. Turner's throw gets by Bellinger. Utley backs up the play and throws to Seager to get Aoki trying for second. Springer walks and is caught stealing by Barnes.

Bottom of 8 -- Three up, three down.

Top 9 -- Dodgers bring in Morrow instead of Jensen. First two hitters ground out. Gurriel singles for his third hit but McCann strikes out.

Bottom 9 -- Taylor fans but Seager singles. Devinski leaves and Giles comes in. Turner blasts a walkoff homer. LA wins 3-1.
