Wednesday night, on the first day of November, the Houston Astros defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-1 in Game 7 of an epic World Series. The Astros won their first World Series Championship in franchise history. Waiting 55 years for their first title, this championship was extra special to the city of Houston following the Hurricane Harvey disaster in late August.

The 2017 World Series will go down as one of the best Fall Classics of all time, after both 100 win teams battled it out in seven tight contests. The series featured two extra inning games, with the Astros winning both Games 2 and 5. Home-field was a significant factor in this postseason, but the Astros won Game 7 on the road in Los Angeles in front of a hostile home crowd.

Game 7, ironically, may have been the least dramatic game in the series as the Astros jumped out to a 5-0 lead in the second inning after rocking Dodger’s star pitcher Yu Darvish for the second time in the series. The Dodgers were 1-13 with RISP, and they couldn’t break through with the big hit all night. There were many heroes in this game for Houston, but Charlie Morton may have been the least expected as he came in and threw the last four innings of the game to earn the win.

George Springer took home the World Series MVP honors after the star outfielder set numerous World Series records. He hit a home run in the last four games of this series, and tied Reggie Jackson and Chase Utley for the most home runs in a single World Series with five. The Astros also became the second team in MLB history to win both the LCS and World Series in seven games, and Houston had several players step up at different times throughout this postseason.

The Championship Parade will take place Friday in downtown Houston, and it’s safe to say that the majority of H-Town will be there to cheer their beloved Astros on.
