Nationals Win ‘Road’ Series With More Clutch Hitting

Jonathan Grant | October 31st, 2019

The Houston Astros had gotten off to a good start in Game 7 of the World Series against the Washington Nationals on Wednesday night. Yuli Gurriel’s solo home run in the bottom of the second inning and Carlos Correa’s fifth-inning single had given them a 2-0 lead that looked very commanding due to the pitching of starter Zack Greinke.

Greinke had barely allowed a soul on base all game long, giving up just a single hit in the first six innings. However, the seventh inning would prove to be the turning point. The Nats’ bats came alive, with Anthony Rendon halving the deficit with a solo shot of his own. Typically clutch Howie Kendrick then hit a two-run homer that put the visitors up 3-2 on the evening. Juan Soto gave them some insurance in the eighth when he drove in Adam Eaton. Eaton then added three more runs to the pile in the top of the ninth to make it 6-2, a lead the home team had no chance at coming back from. The Nationals had won the World Series for the first time, completing a sweep for the road team in every single game. Nationals starting pitcher Stephen Strasburg won MVP for the series after winning two games. He went 5-0 with a 1.98 ERA throughout the postseason as a whole.
