Excitement, peace, and relief were just some of the emotions running high for the city of Houston on November 1st. It was game 7 of the World Series in Los Angeles, and the Houston Astros had never won the World Series before. Yu Darvish took the mound for the Los Angeles Dodgers, and looked determined to pitch his team to a championship. But once the game started, the Houston Astros were running away with the game. George Springer hit a two-run homer in the second inning, which ended up kick-starting the Houston Astros offense by scoring 5 runs in the same inning. Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Yu Darvish could not even make it out of the second inning, making it the second time he had been in this situation in the series. From

that point on, it was all about starting pitcher Charlie Morton, coming out of the bullpen for the Houston Astros. Morton went 4 innings and allowed only 1 run, as he finished off the Los Angeles Dodgers. Months after losing homes, possessions, and lives to Hurricane Harvey, the city of Houston started feeling excitement, peace, and relief.  The Houston Astros won their first World Series championship. Minute Maid Park (the field of the Houston Astros) was loaded with fans, as they were watching the broadcast from the jumbotron in the stadium. Confetti falling from the ceiling, fans jumping in joy, and a whole city reunited, from one special moment.

The MVP of the series was outfielder George Springer. After going 0-4 with 4 strikeouts in game one, manager A.J. Hinch stuck with his young outfielder, and boy was it a good decision. The World Series MVP went 11-29 with 5 home runs, which made him the third player in World Series history to hit 5 home runs in a series (MLB.com). It was an extraordinary finish to an extraordinary season. Hopefully we will get the same amount of entertainment for the 2018 season of baseball.
