However for tonight’s trivia question, we’re going to re-write the rules of the World Series. In our version the teams will play all seven games. Next we are going to total up all the runs each team gets for the seven game run. The team with the most runs over seven games wins!
For example, Monday the Dodgers won 3 – 1, and last night Astro’s won 7 -6 . The two game total now has the Dodgers are ahead in the series 9 – 8 at this time using this model.
