The Astros and Dodgers provided tons of drama during their seven-game World Series, even after the final out.

Houston won its first title in team history by defeating Los Angeles 5-1 at Dodger Stadium.

The 2017 Fall Classic will likely go down as one of the best ever played as both teams were evenly matched and fought hard throughout the Series.

There were many memorable moments along the way, here are five of the best:

Kershaw’s 11-K game

Game 1 seems like a forever ago, but when you look back at this World Series, Clayton Kershaw’s opening Series performance was nothing short of remarkable and will likely go down as one of the greatest outings for a pitcher in WS history. The lefty struck out 11 and allowed just one run on three hits over seven innings.

Altuve And Correa Go Back-To-Back To Awaken The Astros Bats

The Astros had the best lineup in the Majors this season but the bats didn’t come alive until the second game – and in extra innings at that. Jose Altuve and Carlos Correa got those bats going in the 10th when they hit back-to-back homers. The Dodgers came back in the bottom of the inning but Houston kept swinging in the 11th, scoring a pair of runs that would lead to the Astros evening up the Series.

 

Springer Gets Redemption

George Springer made a terrible gaffe in the outfield during Game 5 that allowed Enrique Hernandez to score from first on what would be a Cody Bellinger triple. However, Springer redeemed himself on the next Dodger pitch, hitting the long ball to tie it up.
