What Strange Way Is Game Five Going to End?
The MLB wanted to know, and Twitter had some predictions.
No doubt about it, this World Series has offered us some strange variations on ways a baseball game can end. Game Three concluded with an error. Game Four saw the first game-ending pickoff in playoff history. So with the World Series gods seemingly upping the absurdity ante with every passing day, the MLB had a question for its Twitter followers: “How will Game Five End?” What’s going to force that final out? Seriously, what on earth could top it? Does Bane have to make an entrance? Using the hashtag #HowGame5WillEnd, the funny folks of Twitter had some thoughts.
There were the traditional answers involving the invocation of a strange rule no one saw coming:

Tomorrow’s game probably ends with a falcon catching ball in its beak and dropping it over fence for walkoff.
