The World Series continues to deliver as advertised with exciting and dramatic baseball. Things are only going to get better from here on as the stakes are raised, now that the series is knotted at two games apiece as the Astros and Dodgers head into tonight’s Game 5.

Even better, the series has gone on long enough that the good pitchers are coming back up again. Here comes another duel between Clayton Kershaw and Dallas Keuchel. Won’t that be fun? Probably. Heck, they’ve all been fun so far.

Last night’s game was the first game that Houston has lost at home this postseason. Now that the streak has been broken, will they lose another one? The series will be heading back to Los Angeles either way - the only question now is whether it ends up going six games or seven games... and that depends on who wins tonight and on Halloween night.
