Game 2 of the World Series on Wednesday night was all about the home run.

A record number of them.

The Houston Astros and Los Angeles Dodgers combined for eight long balls at Dodger Stadium, the most ever in a World Series game. George Springer had the biggest, a two-run drive in the 11th inning that helped the American League champions to a 7-6 victory and split of the opening two games in Los Angeles.

"This was a night obviously the ball was carrying," Astros manager A.J. Hinch said. "A lot of big-time players stepping up and getting big swings."

Springer's teammate, Marwin Gonzalez, added a solo shot in the ninth inning to tie the game at 3, and fellow Astros Jose Altuve and Carlos Correa went back-to-back in the 10th, as Houston became the first team in major league history to homer in the ninth, 10th and 11th innings of a postseason game.

But the Dodgers didn't go down quietly.
