Look into the World Series

Gavin Buchanan, News Reporter

The ballet has been finalized, after the Houston Astros triumphant Game 7 win over the New York Yankees, they are set to play the Los Angeles (LA) Dodgers in the World Series. The Dodgers made a quick coordinated strike against the reigning world champion Chicago Cubs to solidify their place on the biggest stage in baseball.

Both of these ball clubs had done tremendously well in the regular season. The Astros finished with an American League best of 101 wins and 61 losses. This gave the Astros a impressive win/loss percentage of .623. The Dodgers fared slightly better as the had the best record in all of baseball, winning 104 games and losing 58. This gave them an even more impressive .642 win/loss percentage. Noting that both of these teams were both the number one seeds in their respective conferences, it is clear to some why these teams are in the position they are in right now.

This was surely not surprising that these teams have met judging by their regular season stats. The World Series is a best of seven games series and is the last step to becoming world champions, which is a dream to most of the players in Major League Baseball (MLB). The series has already begun to unfold as many predicted. It has been a battle in which each team is giving their all. The series had been evened up to a series record of 2-2, that is until last night.

The Astros and Dodgers put on one of the greatest postseason games of all time. The game lasted over five hours and there were a total of 25 runs scored. The game lasted ten innings with a final score of 13-12, with the Astros coming out on top. They now lead the series 3-2. Will they win their first World Series in franchise history, or will the Dodgers rally to add a trophy to their collection?
