Springer Named Most Valuable Player of the 2017 World Series

LOS ANGELES Houston Astros center fielder George Springer was named the Most Valuable Player of the 2017 World Series, which his team won on Wednesday.

The Astros beat the Los Angeles Dodgers in the seventh game of the Fall Classic to take the best-of-seven series 4-3.

Springer, who had a stellar week, hit his fifth home run of the series in Game 7 to take his team to victory.

His two-run homer in the second inning off Dodgers starting pitcher Yu Darvish helped the Astros stretch their lead to 5-0.

Springer batted .379 in the series with five home runs and seven RBIs.

His eight extra-base hits are the most ever in a single World Series and he is the first man to hit home runs in four successive World Series games.

With his fifth home run of the series, Springer joined baseball legends Reggie Jackson (1977) and Chase Utley (2009) as the only players with five home runs in one World Series.

The center field also finished the series with 29 total bases, breaking the record of 25 shared by Willie Stargell (1979) and Jackson.

Springer also broke the record held by Stargell for the most extra-base hits in a World Series with seven, becoming the first player to have had at least one extra-base hit in six straight World Series games.
