Houston Astros Take Game 7, Win First World Series Title

Astros Win World Series

It’s been 55 years in the making, but finally, the Houston Astros are World Series champions. With a 5-1 win over Los Angeles Dodgers in Games 7, the Astros secured their first world championship in franchise history. Without a doubt, this World Series was one of the greatest in recent memory. The most pivotal (and thrilling) games of the series were games two and five. Both went to extra innings. Both were won by the Astros.

Game Two had everyone on the edge of their seats.

When fans couldn’t ask for more, Game Five happened.

Then Game Six, Houston trots Justin Verlander to the mound. Just like game two, Verlander pitched well, but this World Series was too great to be decided in six games. After the Dodgers prevailed, all bets were off come Game Seven. Everything pointed to a Dodgers victory in Game Seven. They had confidence, they had swagger, and they had Yu Darvish on the mound. Eight Darvish pitches into the game, the Astros had a 2-0 lead. In the top of the second, George Springer hit his fifth home run of the series to extend the lead to 5-0. That was all they needed. Lance McCullers Jr. to Brad Peacock. Peacock to Francisco Liriano for four pitches and an out. Then Chris Devenski for an out. Finally, Charlie Morton for the final four innings. Each one did their job and Morton finished it off. Houston Astros: World Series Champions.

Brian McCann, Carlos Beltran, Justin Verlander finally get their rings; well earned. Jose Altuve, Carlos Correa, George Springer, and Alex Bregman all just getting started. After the devastation left by Hurricane Harvey, the city of Houston deserves this. This isn’t a fluke either; they’ll be around for years to come.
