Kate Upton wore her lucky retro Astros rainbow sweater jacket as she watched fiancé Justin Verlander battle the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 6 of the World Series Tuesday night, but it wasn't enough.
Verlander dominated the Dodgers in the first five innings, but gave up two runs in the sixth and was pulled from the game when the Astros came to bat in favor of pinch-hitter Evan Gattis. He was tagged with the loss as the Dodgers won 3-1 to force a winner-take-all game Wednesday night.
The 25-year-old model seemed really to be into the game as she loudly cheered her fiancé from an open-air box at Dodger Stadium. But, in a city full of celebrities, she was in the minority as an Astros fan. Cheering the Dodgers on were Jason Bateman, Mary Hart, Larry King, Jon Hamm, wearing a baseball cap of his beloved St. Louis Cardinals, and Ashton Kutchner and wife, Mila Kunis, both in Dodger blue caps and jerseys. The couple, rabid Dodger fans, waved large flags from the top of the dugout in celebration of their team's victory.
Upton had previously worn the navy Astros sweater jacket with rainbow stripes to Game 7 of the American League Championship Series against the New York Yankees in Houston. The Astros won that game and Verlander was named the ALCS MVP.
Maybe she should give the it another try on Wednesday night.
She reportedly bought the old-school jacket from the Philadelphia-based Mitchell and Ness Nostalgic Co., which describes itself as a "purveyor of authentic throwback team apparel, replica jerseys, snapbacks, fitted hats, and branded apparel since 1904."
