Astros Win First World Series Title after Defeating Dodgers 5-1

LOS ANGELES – Houston Astros center fielder George Springer hit yet another home run to take his team to its first-ever World Series title after defeating the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-1 in Game 7 on Wednesday at Dodgers Stadium.

The visitors won the Fall Classic 4-3 in the seventh decisive game of the best-of-seven series for the first time in their 56-season history.

The last time the Dodgers won the World Series crown was in 1988.

The team has won a total of six titles, but only once at home in 1963.

This was the third time in four seasons that the World Series went the full seven games.

Springer struck a two-run homer in the second inning off Dodgers starting pitcher Yu Darvish to become the first man to hit home runs in four successive World Series games.

It was also Springer’s fifth homer of the World Series and his sixth in the postseason.

The win was awarded to Astros closer Charlie Morton (1-4), who struck out four batters and allowed one run, one walk and two hits in four innings.

The Dodgers got their first run after pinch-hitter Andre Ethier hit a run-scoring single in the sixth inning.

The game’s loser was Darvish (0-2), who gave up four earned runs off only three hits, including a home run, in one and two-thirds innings.
