Jonah Keri pointed this out on Twitter a few minutes ago. I dare say I haven’t seen analysis this good in all of my days. Really, we just need to stop now and let the season wind down, because all that can be said has been said. Including a bit about CC Sabathia having “gained so much weight, every time he goes to the beach, Greenpeace tries to drag his a– back to the water.”
George Springer sets record with homer in fifth consecutive World Series game
Astros outfielder George Springer has set another postseason home run record. He swatted a solo home run off of Nationals reliever Tanner Rainey to lead off the bottom of the seventh inning, reducing the Nationals’ lead to 5-3. It marked his fifth consecutive World Series game with a home run, breaking a tie with Reggie Jackson and Lou Gehrig to set a new record, per MLB.com’s Sarah Langs.
Springer homered in Games 4 through 7 in the 2017 World Series against the Dodgers. The Astros, of course, ultimately won the series to earn the franchise’s first championship.
Springer hadn’t had the best showing in the 2019 playoffs, as he entered Tuesday’s action batting .152/.235/.283 across 51 plate appearances.
