The Washington Nationals claimed their first World Series in franchise history last night with a 6-2 win over the Houston Astros in Game 7. Here’s a roundup of some of the coverage:

  • For World Series champion Nats, the team that wouldn’t die, there was no doubt, just hope, writes The Washington Post’s Barry Svrluga. (Click here to see all of The Post‘s coverage)
  • It was an entertaining series, but one full of a lot of strange moments and surprises as the Astros fell short, capping a bizarre World Series, writes the Houston Chronicle’s Jenny Dial Creech.
  • The Nationals wore down October, their former tormentor, and delivered the most unlikely of World Series championships by living out the cliche “they don’t quit.” Dispatch from the last, champagne and beer-soaked night of 2019, from The Athletic’s David Aldridge.
  • After a stunning World Series loss, the Astros are left to pick of the pieces of a season they thoroughly dominated, writes Sports Illustrated’s Stephanie Apstein.
  • They used to call the Houston Astrodome the Eighth Wonder of the World. Maybe we need a nickname for what transpired Wednesday at Minute Maid Park in Game 7 of the World Series. Something like the Seventh-Inning Shocker might work, writes ESPN’s David Schoenfield.
  • The Houston Astros ‘ decision to pull starter Zack Greinke in Game 7 will face scrutiny forever, writes the USA Today’s Bob Nightengale.
