Game 5 of the World Series was over five hours long and over 400 pitches were thrown. It was a grueling match that seemed like it would never end. Unfortunately, Astros’ Alex Bregman hit a walk-off single in the bottom of the 10th inning that won the game for Houston, with a final score of 13-12.
The game was an emotional roller-coaster, and social media reacted as such. Let’s take a look at some of the best tweets from Sunday night’s game!
Beginning with ours, we decided to shoutout Bill Miller and his strike zone. It was absolutely terrible all night long, so we adjusted the strike zone to match our feelings.

This one is pretty hilarious. Fox 11 accidentally showed a short clip that showed the Dodgers winning. I appreciate their faith, but that’s pretty embarrassing!

As stated earlier, the game lasted over five hours! And it was a difficult five hours to endure. Check out these tweets talking about how long the game was and how hard it was to handle.

And we’ve saved what I think is the best for last. In the top of the 9th inning, Yasiel Puig hit a two-run home run to put the Dodgers within one run of tying the game. An Astros’ fan caught the ball, but apparently her brother-in-law wasn’t so happy about it. He stole it out of her hands and threw it back onto the field.
