Astros beat Dodgers for maiden World Series title
LOS ANGELES – Reuters
The Houston Astros won the World Series on Nov. 1 on the back of a second inning home run by George Springer that lifted the team to a 5-1 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers and delivered the franchise the first title in its 55-year existence.
The Astros jumped on Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher Yu Darvish early, scoring all five of their runs in the first two innings before riding a long string of relief pitchers to the win at Dodger Stadium.
“There has been a lot going on in Houston but they are the biggest reason we are here playing every day.”
“This is the happiest moment in my life in baseball,” he said.
