A one-run lead is often enough of a cushion for Los Angeles Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw. But on Tuesday, in Game 1 of the World Series, Kershaw and the Dodgers’ 1-0 lead was short-lived thanks to Houston Astros third baseman Alex Bregman, a former LSU star.
With his Astros down 1-0 in the top of the fourth, Bregman got an atypically hittable fastball from Kershaw, and he did not miss it, parking the ball in the left-field bleachers to tie the game:

Bregman’s solo shot came as a massive relief to the Astros, who went down by a run on the first pitch their starter (and former Arkansas star) Dallas Keuchel threw, as Dodgers outfielder Chris Taylor hit a homer of his own.
The Dodgers went on to win 3-1.
