Add Jerry Hairston, Jr. to the list of possible Yankees’ mangerial candidates. The long-time utility player is 41 and was a member of the 2009 WS Champion Yankees. He’s with the Dodgers in a broadcasting capacity right now. But another without managerial experience.
WS Game 5 was wild. Houston won 13-12 in 10 innings to take a 3 games to 2 lead in the WS, and they have Verlander going in Game 6 Tuesday night.
Going blow by blow could take me years.
LA had a 4-0 lead with Kershaw on the mound. Seemed safe, right? Nope.
Houston came back to tie it. LA then went up 7-4. Houston came back to tie it. In the seventh, LA went up 8-7, Houston came back with four to go up 11-8. Both teams traded runs in the 8th, then the Dodgers scored 3 in the 9th to tie it up at 12. Houston scored in the bottom of the 10th to win it.
Altuve, Correa and Gurriel, 3-4-5 in the Astros’ lineup, combined for 10 RBI.
Alex Bregman with the GW hit, and Kensley Jansen is being mortal this WS.
With Kuechel and Kershaw, you expected a pitcher’s duel. Nope.
Two wild extra-inning games in this WS, and both went to the Astros.
The Arizona Fall League is off Sundays.
Cubs’ bench coach Dave Martinez is now the new manager of the Washington Nationals. The Phillies are apparently hiring Gabe Kapler.
