George Springer, disheveled in his grass-stained, untucked uniform, was exhausted. Brian McCann, sweat still beading on his forehead, stood near his locker, emotionally spent. Joe Musgrove, who seemed as though he might be serious, said he was ready to have a heart attack — several times.
And these guys, playing for the Houston Astros, were the winners.
In a crazy, epic, instant classic of a World Series game, the Astros outslugged and outlasted the Los Angeles Dodgers, prevailing by 13-12 when Alex Bregman’s two-out single in the bottom of the 10th inning scored pinch-runner Derek Fisher.
