Nationals beat long odds to win World Series

EDITOR'S NOTE: THIS VERSION CORRECTS THE PRONUNCIATION OF ANTHONY RENDON'S NAME.

The Washington Nationals won their first-ever World Series title on Wednesday (October 31) sending fans into a frenzy near midnight on the streets of D.C.

The team beat the Houston Astros in Game 7 to claim the championship, rallying in the seventh inning and stunning Houston with a 6-to-2 win.

Pitcher Zack Greinke kept a lid on the Nats for more than six innings.

The Astros entered the seventh with a 2-0 lead.

That was when the Nats' Anthony Rendon hit a home run that ignited a rally and the team took a lead they never let go of.

The Nat's ace pitcher Stephen Strasburg was named MVP.

It's a stunning turnaround for the team.

They began the season with a lowly record of 19 to 31.

And they faced elimination five times during the post-season.

DC did have a world series win before this, with a different franchise.

In 1924 the Washington Senators defeated the New York Giants in seven games.

So Wednesday's win puts an end to nearly a century of disappointments.
