Ranking Game 2 among the wildest World Series contests ever played

the Score

Game 2 of the 2017 World Series will be remembered for a long time as a crazy, home run-fueled marathon that turned into an instant classic.

Even before Wednesday’s 11-inning nail-biter was completed, it had already entered World Series lore as one of the most exhilarating games to ever be played in the Fall Classic. But while Game 2 was a roller-coaster ride of insanity, plenty of other World Series contests rival it in terms of sheer craziness. Let’s take a look back and rank Wednesday’s contest among the 10 wildest games in World Series history.

10. 2005 Game 2: White Sox 7, Astros 6

The Astros apparently love nutty World Series games. Game 2 in 2005 featured a memorable game-changing grand slam from White Sox slugger Paul Konerko, although it actually didn’t factor into the decision after the Astros tied it in the ninth. But the White Sox still came out on top in remarkable fashion when Scott Podsednik – a light-hitting leadoff man who had hit a grand total of zero homers all year – walked it off against All-Star closer Brad Lidge. That’s baseball.

9. 2016 Game 7: Cubs 8, Indians 7 (10)

How fun was this classic from one year ago? From David Ross becoming the oldest player to homer in a Game 7 to Rajai Davis’ jaw-dropping blast off Aroldis Chapman, to the Cubs finally vanquishing their ghosts after a rain delay – and don’t forget the Indians almost pulling it out in the bottom of the 10th. Few will ever forget this wild night.
