Nationals starting pitcher Stephen Strasburg was awarded series MVP and, along with a mantle-worthy trophy, he also received a brand new 2020 Chevy Corvette C8 to take home.
After returning home and losing three straight games to put their title hopes in the balance, the resilient Nationals found a way to bounce back to win two more in Houston to close it out.
Kendrick, whose grand slam in the 10th inning of Game 5 of the National League Division Series felled the 106-win Los Angeles Dodgers, again struck the decisive blow for Washington. "They've come through all year long for us in big ways". And they added insurance runs in the eighth and the ninth.
They won the last two against a team that posted the best home record in the majors (60-21) over the last two decades. "And we fell one win shy", Astros manager AJ Hinch said. Including his 374-shot into the Crawford Boxes in left, Rendon was 6-for-6 with a walk, three doubles and three home runs in the seventh inning or later of elimination games. Greinke, 36, was acquired from the Arizona Diamondbacks in a trade in July as the Astros revisited their splashy strategy from two years earlier, when they made a last-gasp trade for Justin Verlander, another veteran ace pitcher, and won their first World Series, sparking joyous scenes in a city that had been devastated by Hurricane Harvey only a few weeks earlier.

The Nationals are taking home the Commissioner's Trophy despite an ungrateful fanbase comprised nearly entirely of wealthy lobbyists and bandwagon hipsters with little-to-no sports knowledge. "But I was able to find a flight, get down here and was able to buy a ticket online", Powell said. Make the playoffs enough times, and you've got a good chance of winning it all eventually.
With Greinke and Scherzer grunting on every pitch, Game 7 started as a classic duel.
"I wasn't going to pitch him [Cole] unless we were going to win the World Series and have a lead", Hinch said.
Nats' reliever Daniel Hudson retired the Astros in the bottom of the ninth without incident. I consider the 2019 Houston Astros one of the ten best teams to take the field during my time as a fan. "It wasn't his most probably overpowering performance, but it was one of his most gutsy and he willed us to stay in the game".
