    Morton Lights-Out in the Eighth

    It looks like Morton may go the distance, and you can't really blame A.J. Hinch. Morton's gone three innings and looked stellar in each one.

  26. Clock Icon3:17 am

    Can the Astros Get Some More Insurance?

    Houston hasn't been able to get anything since Darvish was pulled. Its pitching has been more than up to the task tonight, but a few insurance runs would be nice. Easier said than done against Jansen. Astros 5, Dodgers 1 - Top of the seventh

  27. Clock Icon3:06 am

  28. Clock Icon3:17 am

    Big Hit from the Vet

    Andre Ethier drives in L.A.'s only run, only to have Taylor strike out and Seager ground out behind him. The Dodgers have now stranded 10 runners in six innings. Astros 5, Dodgers 1 - Top of the seventh

  31. Clock Icon3:16 am

    Another Scoreless Half-Inning for Kershaw

    That's four scoreless innings for Kershaw. That one took a little more work, though. He gave up a hit, intentionally walked two and eventually ended the inning by forcing a flyout from Cameron Maybin. Astros 5, Dodgers 0 - Bottom of the sixth

  36. Clock Icon2:38 am

    Another Chance with the Dodgers

    L.A. has already left several runners in scoring position stranded. Bellinger, who's currently tied with Aaron Judge for the record for most strikeouts in a seven-game series, is up with two on and one out. Astros 5, Dodgers 0 - Bottom of the fifth

  37. Clock Icon2:36 am

    Long At-Bat for Turner

    Justin Turner is battling Peacock. This might be the last guy he faces. Astros 5, Dodgers 0 - Bottom of the fifth

  38. Clock Icon2:22 am

  39. Clock Icon2:35 am

    Nothing Doing for the Dodgers

    L.A. just cannot wake up its bats. Turner has another chance here, though. Following a walk to Seager, Turner's up with one on and one out. He was hit by a pitch in each of his first two at-bats tonight. Astros 5, Dodgers 0 - Bottom of the fifth

  40. Clock Icon2:34 am

    Three Masterful Innings from Kershaw

    Kershaw has allowed just one baserunner in three relief innings. The Dodgers need to give him some support. Astros 5, Dodgers 0 - Bottom of the fifth

    Kershaw Back Out for the Fifth

    Another scoreless frame for the Dodgers. This one ends with Kershaw striking out. He's back on the mound for his third inning of the night. Houston hasn't gotten anything going against him, but the Dodgers aren't taking advantage at the plate. Astros 5, Dodgers 0 - Top of the fifth

  44. Clock Icon2:05 am

    On to the Bottom of the Fourth

    The Astros are giving their fans in Houston plenty to cheer for, but Kershaw has stemmed the offensive tide for now. Can the Dodgers finally strike back in the fourth? Astros 5, Dodgers 0 - Bottom of the fourth

    A LOOONG Out

    It looked like Puig got all of that one. He even thought so. But it really hung up in there. Runners on the corners now for Pederson with two down. Astros 5, Dodgers 0 - Bottom of the third

  48. Clock Icon1:41 am

  49. Clock Icon1:51 am

    And It Didn't Even Take Him Three Innings

    So, apparently, Kike Hernandez' walk was actually an HBP too. Was grazed on a 3-1 pitch. McCullers was wild all night, and now he's gone. Brad Peacock coming on for the Astros.

    Astros 5, Dodgers 0 - Bottom of the third

  50. Clock Icon1:48 am

    Turner Plunked Again

    Turner's been up twice. He's been hit twice. McCullers has been wild. Pretty fortunate he's yet to surrender a run. Two on with no outs now, though. Bellinger at the dish. Astros 5, Dodgers 0 - Bottom of the third

  51. Clock Icon1:48 am

    Three Up, Three Down

    Kershaw got two quick flyouts, then struck out Gurriel. The Dodgers need any kind of momentum now, and Kershaw may have given them a little bit. They desperately need some offense now. Astros 5, Dodgers 0 - Bottom of the third

  52. Clock Icon1:48 am

    Here Comes Kershaw

    The Dodgers' ace is coming on for the third inning with his team down five. Huge mountain to climb. Astros 5, Dodgers 0 - Top of the third

  53. Clock Icon1:48 am

    Beautiful Play by Bregman

    Bregman has been a force defensively at third throughout the playoffs. He just robbed Austin Barnes of a hit. Astros 5, Dodgers 0 - Bottom of the second

    Darvish Is Done

    For the second start in a row, both in the World Series, Darvish is done after five outs. And oh, that was Springer's FIFTH home run of the series. Astros 5, Dodgers 0 - Top of the second

  58. Clock Icon1:13 am

    Big Moment Here

    Infield probably should've been in too. Astros 3, Dodgers 0 - Top of the second

  59. Clock Icon1:13 am

    RBI Groundout for McCullers

    The Astros tack on another run with a slow dribbler from McCullers. Talk about a tough start for Darvish. Astros 3, Dodgers 0 - Top of the second

  60. Clock Icon1:12 am

    Two on and One Out for the Astros

    Darvish just gave up a double to Marwin Gonzalez. Fortunately for the Dodgers, McCann was the man on. Couldn't get past third. Runners on second and third with one out and the pitcher up.

    Astros 2, Dodgers 0 - Top of the second

  61. Clock Icon1:11 am

    Leadoff Walk for Darvish

    Tough start for Darvish. He's really only thrown one bad ball, and Springer drilled it for a double. Could argue Brian McCann should be in the dugout. Astros 2, Dodgers 0 - Top of the second

  62. Clock Icon1:11 am

    Houston Escapes the First with a Lead

    McCullers gave up a double and hit two batters...and came out unscathed. Struck out Seager and Bellinger and then got Pederson to ground out to end the frame. Astros 2, Dodgers 0 - Top of the second

  63. Clock Icon12:52 am

    McCullers Hits Another Batter

    McCullers has now loaded the bases by plunking Puig on the elbow. Joc Pederson up with a big chance here. Bases loaded and two outs. Astros 2, Dodgers 0 - Bottom of the first
