Last week, the Houston Astros defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-1 in Game 7 of a great World Series.

Game 7—it’s always do or die.

This World Series was one to remember. Even Dodgers’ right fielder Yasiel Puig called it after the Dodgers’ 10-inning loss in Game 5. He said, “My team is not going to be finished on Game 6. There’s going to be Game 7.”

His Los Angeles team beat the Astros 3-1 in Game 6 to force a Game 7.

Astros Step up to the Plate

The Astros are on top for batting this MLB season.

This World Series has set a new records for homers—25.

Fourteen of those come from the Astros’ lineup, one of them being in Game 7.

With the help of George Springer, Jose Altuve, Brian McCann, Carlos Correa and Yuli Gurriel in Game 5, the Astros became the first team to have five different batters homer.

A Look at History

This marked the 39th time the World Series has gone to 7 games.

With the Astros win, this marks the 20th time the away team has won a Game 7.

With this win, Houston walked into the record books winning their first World Series title.

The last time Los Angeles won was in 1988.

ESPN picked the Astros over the Dodgers, 5-4, and they were certainly close.
