Justin Verlander Puts Game 5 into Perspective With Hilarious Instagram Post


That. Was. INSANE! 

No words in the english language could accurately describe Game 5 of the World Series. It was utter madness. A pitching duel between Dallas Kuechel and Clayton Kershaw turned into an all-out slugfest between each team. 

It was the type of game where no lead was safe. Both the fans and teams were put the the emotional ringer last night, and Justin Verlander's Instagram post perfectly sums it up. 

If Verlander didn't have any grey hair before, he definitely does now. Game 2 of the World Series was talked about as one of the craziest games ever, but Game 5 made that game look like a regular season game being played in June.

"Just when I thought I could describe Game 2 as my favorite game of all time, I think Game 5 exceeded that and more," Astros manager A.J. Hinch said.

Rallying from two three-run deficits, the Astros hit five home runs and recovered from being down in three separate innings. 

Is it too early to call this the greatest World Series ever?
