Here Are Reactions From Baseball Fans Who Fell Asleep & Missed An EPIC World Series Game (TWEETS + VIDEO)
Game 5 of the 2017 World Series between the Astros and Dodgers was an instant all-time classic.
The Dodgers went up 4-0 in the top of the fourth. Then the Astros scored four in the bottom of the fourth—off Clayton Kershaw—to tie it.
Then the Dodgers scored three in the top of the fifth to make it 7-4. And the Astros scored three in the bottom of the fifth to make it 7-7.
Then the Dodgers made it 8-7 in the top of the sixth. But the Astros made it 11-8 in the bottom of the sixth.
Then the Dodgers tied the game with three runs in the top of the ninth, sending the game to extra innings…where the Astros won on a walk-off single in the bottom of the 10th. Final score: Astros 13, Dodgers 12.
That’s 25 runs scored over the course of 5 hours 17 minutes.
Fans who stayed up for the entire game—which ended at roughly 1:37 A.M. ET—were treated to a game they will never forget. And luckily, Major League Baseball had their back:

However, a lot of fans just couldn’t do it. Some fell asleep trying to stay up. Some just went to bed after the sixth inning.
Needless to say, when these people woke up and found out how the game ended, they were in disbelief.
