Dodgers-BoSox Go 11 Innings in Game 5 of Statis-pro World Series

We are heading back to Los Angeles (Milwaukee) for Game 6 of the World Series. We continue to use the end if season rosters to complete our season replay - which means Max Scherzer was available for the Dodgers for our greatest Statis-Pro pitchers' duel of the season against Nathan Eovaldi.

The same 4 teams made the Statis-pro ALCS and NLCS as in the real season this year. However, both series went the other way in Statis-Pro withe the Braves and Astros making the real World Series, but  the Dodgers and BoSox advancing to the Statis-Pro Series and entered Game 5 with the Series even:

In Game 5, we imagine Eovaldi knew he needed a special effort against Scherzer and the Dodgers. Eovaldi retired the first 13 Dodgers and eventually threw nine innings of 3-hit shutout baseball. Of course Scherzer matched him with his own nine shutout innings marked by 12-strikeouts. The drama was headed to extra innings. Top of 11th with two outs and nobody aboard, two singles and a walk loaded the bases for Corey Seager who ripped a bases clearing triple. They added an insurance run and Kenley Jansen cleaned up the bottom of the inning. Dodgers win second straight 4-0 in 11 innings. (LA leads series 3-2)
