The Houston Astros were able to pull out a victory in extra innings against the Dodgers, and now they can go back to Houston with a chance to win out and win a title. I know that it is unlikely that the Astros will win all three games in Houston, but they could. They have turned this into a series because the home team lost, and now we have to look to the Astros to see if they can use their momentum to close out this series in a few more games.

What is momentum?

Momentum is the belief that the Astros have that they can beat the mighty Dodgers. You can forget about what the Dodgers have or have not done in the last 30 years.

They are still the Dodgers. They are still one of the best franchisees in all of baseball, and they will be losing to the Astros. Please remember that the Astros have almost no big names that have ever played for them. Jose Cruz, Nolan Ryan, Craig Biggio, and Jeff Bagwell are the only guys that the Astros can say were great. Right now they are fielding a ton of guys who could all turn out to be hall of famers. They are fielding a team that could be looked on in a couple decades as one of the best, but today they are just the gnats that the Dodgers have to beat. Winning an extra inning game in Los Angeles makes it so much harder for the Dodgers to believe they can win this series.

The Astros are the clutch team

Please remember that a lot of people are expecting the Dodgers to jump out in front in every game because they can score so much. There are a lot of people who are going to think that the Dodgers should win these games 11-0, and that is not what is happening. They could not close out a game because they could not get timely hitting.

The Astros got timely hitting, and they might keep getting it.

The best part of the World Series

The best part of the World Series is that it is completely unpredictable. The Astros could lose all their games in Houston, or they could sweep the Dodgers at home. We could go to a game seven in extra innings, and we will not be able to redact what will happen.

I still think that the Astros will win the World Series, and I think that they will do it in dazzling fashion. I really think that we will see something amazing that would be worth watching, and I know that there are a lot of people who want to see that over a sweep. I do not want to see a five game series, but I know that the Astros could easily do that when they get back to Minute Maid Park.

The Dodgers should not panic, but they have lost the momentum.
