Dodgers right-handed Joe Kelly threw a fastball behind Alex Bregman and another over the head of Carlos Correa in the sixth inning of the Tuesday evening 2017 World Series rematch against the Houston Astros.
Kelly followed up the inside pitches with a strikeout by Correa to close the frame. He mocked Correa as he walked down the hill and both banks became vacant.
The teams have a lot of bad blood after the Astros cheated three years ago in their championship victory over the Dodgers.

Kelly is known for his bad command but also for his hot head, previously been involved in MLB struggles. He wasn’t in the Dodgers in 2017, but he did play for the Red Sox the following season, when Boston defeated the Astros in the ALCS.
During spring training, several Dodgers players spoke out about the Astros after MLB’s investigation detailed Houston’s sign-stealing schemes.
“I mean, these guys cheated for three years,” said Cody Bellinger. ‘I don’t think people realize that (Jose) Altuve stole an MVP from (Aaron) Judge in ’17. Everyone knows they stole the ring from us. “
No one was flung back and forth from the sixth inning.
