Houston Astros first baseman Yuli Gurriel at bat against Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher Yu Darvish in the first inning. Darvish's World Series nightmare was compounded by a racist gesture made by Houston's Yuli Gurriel in Game Three. After hitting a home run off Darvish to put the Astros ahead, the 33-year-old Cuban was caught on camera using his hands to make a slanted-eye gesture from the dugout. For the second straight game at Dodger Stadium, Gurriel was booed loudly every time he came up to bat. Gurriel, who apologized and was spared a World Series suspension, took off his batting helmet and nodded at Darvish in a show of respect before his first at bat on Wednesday.
