Those who watched Game 5 of the World Series between the Houston Astros and Los Angeles Dodgers on Sunday night were treated to quite the roller-coaster ride.

The Dodgers jumped out to an early 3-0 lead in the first and upped their advantage to 4-0, with ace Clayton Kershaw cruising. But then the bottom of the fourth began and things started to get out of control.

Here's how social media reacted to the biggest moments in what was a back-and-forth affair of epic proportions:

Yuli Gurriel hits three-run homer off Kershaw, game tied 4-4 in bottom of the fourth

Cody Bellinger tags Collin McHugh for three-run blast in top of fifth, Dodgers retake 7-4 lead

Jose Altuve answers with three-run homer of his own, game tied 7-7

After Dodgers take 8-7 lead in top of seventh, George Springer homers on first pitch in bottom of frame to tie game again

Carlos Correa homers to open things up further in seventh, Astros lead 11-8

Dodgers mount three-run comeback in ninth, game tied 12-12

In case you need Monday off to recover from the madness that was Game 5, MLB has you covered.
