Yeah, it sucks the Dodgers lost.
Congrats to the Astros!
As far as the Series goes, this one was pretty fun. Here are the numbers for the records set:
3 – First Game 7 where both starters failed to go three innings;
4 – Hit-by-pitches by Astros starter Lance McCullers Jr. in Game 7;
4 – Consecutive games with a home run by Series MVP George Springer;
5 – Home runs by Springer, tying Reggie Jackson (1977) and Chase Utley (2009);
14 – Players who hit at least one home run;
17 – Strikeouts by Dodgers first baseman Cody Bellinger;
25 – Total home runs hit between the two clubs;
29 – Total bases by Springer, which includes eight extra base hits.
The best byline story though is the June, 2014 Sports Illustrated cover story. Not only does it introduce the Astros as 2017 Series Champions, but the photo is of Series MVP George Springer.
