"I knew yesterday I didn't have much," said Mc Cullers, the Game 3 winner."I knew I didn't have much to give other than to gut it out as long as I could." In a dramatic Series marked by blown leads and late rallies, when Houston twice outlasted the Dodgers in extra innings, Mc Cullers did enough.
"I caught the last out for the Houston Astros to become a world champion.
After Springer lined a leadoff double, Alex Bregman hit a bouncer that first baseman Cody Bellinger threw past Darvish for an error, allowing a run to score.
Bregman aggressively stole third and scored on Altuve's grounder, and it was 2-0 after eight pitches.
"I always believed that we could make it," All-Star slugger Jose Altuve said.
"We did this for them." For a Series that was shaping up as an October classic, Game 7 quickly became a November clunker as Houston scored five runs in the first two innings off Yu Darvish.
