Houston Astros win World Series

Congratulations to the Houston Astros on wining the 2017 World Series over the Los Angeles Dodgers.  At the top of the second inning it was 5-0 thanks to a two-run home run by outfielder George Springer. It was Springer’s fifth home run this series, tying him for the most in a single Fall Classic with Reggie Jackson in 1977 and Chase Utley in 2009.   He also became the first player to homer in four consecutive games in the same World Series.  Springer, unanimously voted the Willie Mays World Series MVP, referenced the inspiration of the Astros’ fan base that is recovering from Hurricane Harvey.  Houston and Los Angeles set the record for most home runs in a single World Series — and dramatic comebacks. Game 5 was the craziest of all, ending with a 13-12 Astros walk-off win in the 10th inning.  The Astros ended the third-longest current MLB championship drought; the Cleveland Indians (69 years) and the Texas Rangers (57 years) continue to wait.
