The 2017 World Series, by all accounts, has been one for the ages.

The Houston Astros and the Los Angeles Dodgers have slugged it out, creating unforgettable moments befitting the “Fall Classic.”

Dan Shulman, who former colleague and Dodger legend Orel Hershiser nicknamed “the voice,” is calling the shots for ESPN Radio.

“The voice” was certainly on display during a crazy World Series Game 5 at Minute Maid Park. The Astros rallied several times to beat the Dodgers 13-12 in 10 innings to take a 3-2 series lead.

Before flying back to Los Angeles for Game 6 (ESPN Radio, Tuesday, 8 p.m. ET) Shulman recounted last night’s classic.

“It was as crazy a game as I’ve ever called,” he said. “I’m not sure I can put it above Game 6 of the 2011 World Series, or Game 7 of last year’s World Series, or even Game 2 of this World Series for that matter – if I’m ranking the “best” games I’ve been lucky enough to call – but just in terms of craziness, it has to be No. 1.”
