The Washington Nationals are World Champions!
In one of the wildest World Series in modern history, which saw the road team win every game, the Nationals pulled off the improbable series win over the heavily favored Houston Astros in seven games – and now they are ready to party!
Bad start, great finish
The Washington Nationals proved the old theory correct. It’s not how you start, but how you finish that matters. At the 50-game mark, Washington was 19-31. That was the National League’s second-worst record at the time.
However, that is when the Nationals somehow caught fire. Washington went on to post a 74-38 mark from that point on which was good enough to earn a Wild Card Game berth.
Little did we all know that when the Nationals overcame a 3-1 deficit in the eighth inning to beat the Milwaukee Brewers 4-3, it would be the story of the postseason.
The Nats rallied from a 2-1 series hole against the Dodgers to win the best-of-five NLDS, then, of course, they trailed the Astros 3-2 in the Fall Classic before winning the final two games of the series on the road and claiming the championship.
