World Series Game 5 by the numbers

11 Comments

Game 5 of the World Series was a barnburner that ultimately went to the Astros, 13-12, in walk-off fashion in the bottom of the 10th inning thanks to Alex Bregman‘s RBI single. That game will go down as one of the most entertaining World Series games of all time. Here it is, broken down by the numbers:

0 pitches thrown above 97 MPH

1 stolen base

2 errors

2 wild pitches

2 hit batsmen

7 home runs

8 lead changes

11 half-innings in which a run was scored

11 walks

12 singles

14 pitchers used

16 extra-base hits

16 batted balls that came off the bat at least 100 MPH

18 strikeouts

22 position players used

25 runs

28 hits

97.5 the Astros’ highest win probability in percentage before the final play of the game (George Springer‘s one-out single in the eighth inning)

317 minutes long

417 Pitches thrown

2,670 feet traveled by home run balls

And for the Astros… one win away from their first ever championship.
