Oct. 1, 2017 was an exciting night for Houston. The Houston Astros won their first World Series title ever in Game 7 against the L.A. Dodgers, at Dodger Stadium, with a final score of 5-1.
A few years ago, the Astros were not a winning team. In 2012 and 2013 they had over 100 losses. This 2016-2017 season they had 101 wins with only 61 losses.
Game 7 started off with the Astros pulling ahead in the first inning with two runs. The Astros George Springer scored the first point when the Dodgers made a throwing error on Alex Bregman’s hit. Jose Altuve then brought in Bregman for another run, ending the first inning 2-0.
The second inning the Astros scored again. Brian McCann was brought in by Lance McCullers Jr. making the score 3-0. A little while later Springer hit a home run, scoring two runs for Astros. Springer was later made the World Series MVP.

The Dodgers run for the night was a hit by Andre Ethier that brought in Joc Peterson.
Since Hurricane Harvey in August the Astros have worn the word “strong” on their uniform to represent what Houston went through during Harvey and how they have kept going.
After the game A.J. Hinch, the Astros manager, said “You know what, Houston, we’re a championship city. This team loves playing in Houston, and we’re going to love bringing this World Series trophy back to Houston.”
For one Astros player, winning the World Series was not the only exciting part of his night. Carlos Correa proposed to his girlfriend, Daniella Rodriguez, on camera during the celebration on the field to which she replied yes.
