Here they stand champions as Lance McCullers started the pitching that would hold down the Dodgers as the reigns would be passed on to Brad Peacock, Francisco Liriano, Chris Devenski and closing it out for the win, Charlie Morton. A well-deserved win for a team who fought through devastation as their city was in peril through Hurricane Harvey. Playing, while back home their own families were dealing with the devastation of floods like the rest of their beloved city of Houston, they pulled through for their fans and their city.

They stand with a heart of a champion, as they rolled up their sleeves, and gave back to their community by raising funds to help those in need after Hurricane Harvey and continue to help neighbors rebuild from the storm. This win is not only for the team but for a city in unity rallying through to rebuild and cheer on their hometown boys to a World Series win. When was the last time a Texas team won? Never. Which is why this is so historic, not only for the Astros but for our great state of Texas as well.

Hall of Famers and former Astros of the first World Series appearance back in 2005, Craig Biggio and Jeff Bagwell, were on deck to congratulate this talented young roster of players. Jose Altuve, George Springer, Carlos Correa, Justin Verlander, and Alex Bregman are among the powerhouses that are sure to showcase their teamwork and talent over and over again in the years to come. It’s a baseball dynasty in the works. Fans back home packed Minute Maid Park to cheer on their team as the crowd exploded in a roar after the last pitch. Another surprise of the night was when Correa proposed to his fiancé, Miss Texas USA Daniella Rodriguez, in a stunning proposal that made the win all the more sweeter.
