Yordan Alvarez hit a towering go-ahead homer and the Houston Astros clinched their second World Series title in six seasons and acquired Dusty Baker his first crown as a supervisor with a 4-1 win over the Philadelphia (*6*) in Game 6 on Saturday night time.
As Alvarez’s 450-foot blast in the sixth inning disappeared, Astros starter Framber Valdez jumped and wildly screamed in the dugout as followers in the gang of 42,948 went right into a frenzy waving their orange rally towels.
Baker lastly acquired his first title in his twenty fifth season as a supervisor, the previous three since being employed by the Astros to assist the workforce regain credibility after the sign-stealing scandal that price manger A.J. Hinch and common supervisor Jeff Luhnow their jobs, and made Houston essentially the most reviled workforce in baseball.
The 73-year-old Baker, who had been to the World Series twice earlier than as a skipper, is the oldest championship supervisor.
More to come.
