The Mets won, but it wouldn’t have been as close if it weren’t for Carlos Gomez.
Check out his catch for the third out in the top of the seventh inning, robbing Carlos Beltran of a homer.
No, I got nothin’ to add to it. Sometimes you just gotta watch a great catch.
We know Clayton Kershaw will oppose Dallas Keuchel in Game 1 of the World Series. We now know the rest of the Dodgers’ rotation order, per Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times. After Kershaw, it’ll be Rich Hill, then Yu Darvish, followed by Alex Wood.
No surprise, that’s the same order the Dodgers used in the NLCS against the Cubs. Dodger starters combined to post a 2.67 ERA with 31 strikeouts and four walks across 27 innings in the NLCS.
The Astros haven’t yet announced their rotation order, but we can safely assume Justin Verlander will follow Keuchel in Game 2.
