(WTNH)– For the first time in major league baseball history, the Houston Astros won a game in the World Series. They beat the L.A. Dodgers Wednesday night, thanks to the heroics of Connecticut’s own George Springer.
Springer’s two run homer in the 11th inning Wednesday night was the key hit for the Astros.
“I knew if I could get him to third base, he would score. And I was fortunate enough to hit it and hit well to get the job done,” said Springer.
“You know if you like October baseball, if you like any kind of baseball, it was one of the most incredible games you’ll be a part of,” said AJ Hinch, Astros manager.
The fall classic now moves to Houston, with the series tied at one game a piece. Game three set for Friday night.
