Houston Astros did good business in the World Series on Sunday (local time). Manager Andrew Jay Hinch's formation won the fifth meeting with Washington Nationals and is one win away from the Major League Baseball (MLB) title.
In Washington, the Astros were 1-7 too strong for the Nationals and so booked the third consecutive victory in the best-of-the-series. The formation from Houston is now leading 3-2. All matches have so far been won by the visiting team.
After four innings, Houston Astros already led 0-4. The Nationals did something back with a homerun in the seventh inning, but in the eighth and ninth inning, the visitors walked farther away from the World Series debutant.
One of the visitors in Washington was Donald Trump, who by the way was not very popular in the city with many democratic voters. The president of the United States was shown on the big screen about ten seconds before the fourth inning and was then booed by the public.
The sixth meeting between the Astros and the Nationals is scheduled for October 30 in Houston. The Washington formation must win that competition to force a seventh and decisive encounter.
Houston Astros (American League champion) is in the World Series for the third time and triumphed for the first time in 2017. Washington Nationals (champion in the National League) is one of the seven clubs that have never won the final of the MLB season.
