ASTROS WIN NAIL-BITER GAME 5

I’ve thrown up several times now, but the Astros win nail-biter game 5 in Philadelphia to come back to Houston with a 3-2 lead in the World Series.

On top of the most stressful game of this series so far, Justin Verlander FINALLY picks up his first ever World Series win. After multiple Cy Young awards, winning an MVP, being a part of a World Series championship, Verlander once and for all gets his World Series win.

I’m not even entirely sure what happened throughout that game anymore. It felt like the longest game so far this series, time wise. The Astros won the game 3-2 and get to go back to Houston with a 3-2 series lead. What a coincidence.

Jeremy Peña was the first rookie shortstop to win a Gold Glove award the other day, and today becomes the first rookie shortstop in World Series history to hit a home run. I’m so proud of my handsome shortstop. Mr. November, Jeremy Peña.

Ryan Pressly came in the 8th inning to snag a casual five-out save, and buddy, did he ever do that. It was the most strenuous viewing experience I’ve had during this postseason, so I can’t even fathom what it must be like on the field for these guys.

Obviously, the job’s not finished. The Astros are back home Saturday night for game six. Buckle up Astros fans, it’s going to be stressful.
