For those who love chaos, the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Houston Astros came through in a big way in Game 5 of the 2017 World Series. 

In a game which Dallas Keuchel and Clayton Kershaw started, baseball fans were expecting a pitchers' duel like they saw between the two aces in Game 1, a 3-1 Dodgers victory. However, this game was anything but that.

Los Angeles jumped out to a 4-0 lead, but the Astros scored four in the bottom of the fourth to tie the game. The Dodgers took a 7-4 advantage in the fifth inning, only to promptly blow that lead in the bottom of the fifth. And when Houston brought home four in the bottom of the seventh to take an 11-8 lead, the drama was only getting started.

Down to their final strike, the Dodgers found a way to tie the game at 12-all and force extra innings after nearly five hours of baseball had already been played. 

Needless to say, the internet had a hard time handling all of the back and forth:

For those who stayed up to watch the extra-inning action, MLB has you covered for Monday:

The Astros walked off with a 13-12 victory in the 10th inning.
