It’s only took two hours and 28 minutes for the Houston Astros drop to 0-5 in the World Series. The Los Angeles Dodgers took game one of the 113th edition of the Fall Classic, 3-1, on Tuesday night at Dodger Stadium.

The Astros were left guessing against Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw, who struck out 11 over seven innings.

All four runs scored in the game were scored on home runs. Chris Taylor guess right on the first pitch of the game from Keuchel and put the Dodgers up 1-0.

Alex Bregman answered back with a solo shot in the fourth inning.

Justin Turner had the key blow with the two run home run in the sixth. Keuchel gave up a two-out walk to Taylor and had Turner down 1-2. Turner caught up with a high fastball.

The Astros couldn’t get a run against the Dodgers bullpen. Brandon Morrow and Kenley Jansen pitched a clean inning each.

The only positive may have been the play of Brad Peacock and Chris Devenski. Peacock struggled but didn’t give up a run. While Devo looked closer to his old self.
