While this is decidedly not the era of the stolen base, Mookie Betts, the Dodgers haste hunter, was here again for those with nowhere to go:
Betts stole second base in the fifth inning, and that ensured that everywhere in this beautiful land there will be a taco in every pot. It should be noted that Betts also stole third place shortly thereafter and Corey Seager stole second place on a double steal. It was the first time a team had stolen three bases in a World Series round since 1912.
In keeping with the trend, Betts wrote another heady bit of base running to score from third on a grounder to first:
Betts, who took a slower trip around the bases later in the game with a sixth inning homer, also won free USA tacos in 2018 as a member of the Red Sox and did so at the expense. of the Dodgers. Blessed Art Mookie Betts, The Double Baseball Tacos Chess Board.
