2nd most exciting World Series game ever: WS 2017 game 5

The second most-exciting World Series game happened last night with the Astros defeating the Dodgers 13-12. The game talled a 1.322 WPA.

WPA is Wins Probability Added. A stat that scores how dramatic each play is. A game-changing home run will have a high WPA rating.

The most-exciting World Series game ever is the 2011 “David Freese” game.

  1. 2011 game 6 (STL-TEX)
    Final score: 10-9
    1.374 WPA
