First in war, first in peace and first to win a Game in the 2019 World Series.
Washington edged Houston 5-4 in Game 1 of the WS. It was the first WS game in franchise history for the former Montreal Expos, and the first win for a Washington team since the 1933 Senators (now the Minnesota Twins) won Game 3 of the 1933 WS.
After winning 20 straight decisions since the end of May, Gerrit Cole finally lost. Of course, Yankees fans wish that this loss would have happened in Game 7 of the ALCS. But Houston won the ALCS in six. What might have been.
Max Scherzer struggled (112 pitches in 5 IP) but got the win.
20 year old Juan Soto (he turns 21 on Friday) had 3 hits and 3 RBI, inc. a HR.
George Springer of Houston homered in his fifth straight WS game, setting a record.
CC Sabathia on Sunday posted a short letter, his goodbye to baseball.
