The Houston Astros won their first ever in franchise history world series title in Houston Astros news today. Game seven of this years World Series turned into a pitching gem for the Houston Astros. They beat the Los Angeles Dodgers five to one.
Houston scored two runs in the first inning and three runs in the third inning. Los Angeles scored their only run in the sixth inning. Houston only needed to runs to win, but held on to win after posting a five to nothing lead.
Los Angeles stranded ten base runners. They had opportunity after opportunity to no avail. Houston had five hits while Los Angeles had six hits.
Los Angeles committed on error in this game seven. Houston’s starting pitcher Lance McCullers was removed after just just two and one thirds inning. I was a bit perplexed by this move, because Lance had not given up any earned runs.
This move actually worked out as Houston’s relief pitchers only gave up one earned run. Los Angeles did NOT fair as good pitching wise. Their starting pitcher Yu Darvish gave up four earned runs in just one and two third innings.
Los Angeles relief pitchers did NOT give up any earned runs. However, because of their lack of offense, it was too little too late. Houston used one of their starting pitchers, Charlie Morton, in relief.
He pitched four innings allowing one earned run. He actually was credited with the win. Houston Astros have now won their first ever World Series title in franchise history.
The Los Angeles Dodgers had plenty of opportunities, but could not convert base runners into runs. This was similar to the way Houston played in a three to one game six loss to Los Angeles. Hoston celebrated their first title in Dodger Stadium.
