Houston wins the 2017 World Series, beating the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 7, by the score of 5 to 1. It was a classic World Series, with exceptional play by the two best teams in baseball. After a very difficult (to say the least) experience with Hurricane Harvey, the town and the team now have a lot to be thankful for as Houston rebuilds. Congrats, Astros.
The Fine Print: Votive candle of Jose Altuve, Houston Astros second baseman (and maybe the team’s most enthusiastic spirit) and the leading hitter in the major leagues this year, was created by someone who deserves credit. But we don’t know who that is…the candle was sent to the Media Bunker by one of our correspondents. So..if you created it, let us know and we’ll point the crowd in your direction. Well done.
