The Astros win the World Series to secure their spot as the top team in MLB

HOUSTON — Framber Valdez struck out, Jordan Alvarez sent a baseball to the moon, and as a result Astros beat Phyllis 4–1 in Game 6 of the World Series to win his second championship in franchise history.

It was the fourth time in the last six seasons that the Astros have reached the World Series, but in their previous two trips, against the Nationals in 2019 and last year against the Braves, they were upset by two underdog teams they didn’t expect to get as far as they could. This time, however, they came back with three straight wins after falling behind in the series, 2–1, each with key moments from some of the team’s younger stars who weren’t around for the first title in ’17. In addition to Valdes and Alvarez, this group of newer stars includes rookie Jeremy Peña, right fielder Christian Javier and center fielder Chas McCormick, among others.
