The Houston Astros won their first World Series on Wednesday night in a 5-1 victory at Dodger Stadium.
Forced to a decisive seventh game after Los Angeles tied the series with a win on Tuesday, the series turned back in Houston’s favor within two minutes of the first pitch. By the time starting pitcher Yu Darvish was taken out, the Astros had scored as many runs as he had recorded outs.
The 113th World Series was won with a cast of homegrown players, with center fielder George Springer, the series MVP, at the forefront. Springer’s second-inning home run chased Darvish and made him the first player ever to homer in four consecutive World Series games.
