Nationals Top Astros in Game 7 to Win 1st World Series Title

"I wasn't going to pitch him [Cole] unless we were going to win the World Series and have a lead", Hinch said.

Taking that into account there is no other way to look at the 2019 season for the Astros than as one of failure.

The champagne stains aren't dry yet from the Washington Nationals' celebration of their first-ever World Series championship, but time marches on.

He subsequently told reporters he had made "a lot of good friendships" during his two years in Houston. "But none of that means anything now".

He continued: "In this game, when we show up to spring training, we're not anxious about winning the Hank Aaron award or MVP".

The game also brought an end to a World Series that early on saw the Astros deal with controversy over a since-fired front office member who taunted a group of female journalists in the team's clubhouse.

It was a fight the whole way for Washington - from losing high-profile home run machine Bryce Harper to the Phillies in free agency, to their shocking 19-31 start to the season, to their unconventional road-win-only method to claim the World Series.

With Greinke and Scherzer grunting on every pitch, Game 7 was a classic duel from the start.

Nate Diaz explains decision to go public with USADA ordeal
The "Rock" is now known as the " The Most Electrifying Man In Sports Entertainment " and he has graced many MMA events through guest appearances.

For the Nationals, who began playing in the USA capital in 2005 when the Montreal Expos moved there and changed their name, the win put the finishing touches to a stunning turnaround after they began the season with a miserable 19-31 record. It wasn't about winning their first title, it was about winning another one.

For 35-year-old Nationals veteran Ryan Zimmerman, who has been with the franchise since its debut in 2005 from the Montreal Expos' move to Washington, it was especially memorable.

Wednesday's loss was a failure.

The first was a solo homer from Houston native Anthony Rendon-who attended Lamar High School and Rice University-to give the Nationals their first run of the night. Jose Altuve's walk-off homer against the Yankees to win the pennant is a distant memory now.

Dave Martinez had a great comment about his health after his Washington Nationals won the World Series on Wednesday night. "It lives on forever".

The last time the city of Washington won a World Series title was in 1924 when the Washington Senators wrapped up the title as an American League team.

If you're a fan of a team with less-than-stellar odds, don't let them get you down.
