Sam Dyson got the win in relief of J.A. Happ.
Game 5 – Behind Chris Carter’s and Evan Gattis’ second HR each of the ALDS, Madison Bumgarner took a 3-1 lead into the bottom of the 4th. After a HBP, single and double; Victor Martinez hit a sacrifice fly for out number 2. Christian Yelich tied the game with an RBI single. New York wasn’t finished though. They sent 10 batters to the plate and the big blow was Mookie Betts’ 3-run shot. The Wild Card High Society advance to the ALCS with the 8-5 win.
