Alvarez blasts Astros to world title in G6 vs. Phils

HOUSTON (AFP) – Jordan Alvarez won the green light for the Houston Astros to win their second World Championship title in six seasons and earned Dusty Baker his first title as a coach with a 4-1 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies in Game Six. Saturday evening.

With Alvarez’s 450-foot blast gone in the sixth inning, Astros’ Framber Valdes jumped and screamed so hard into the dugout as fans in the 42,948-foot crowd went into a frenzy waving their orange towels.

Baker finally earned his first title in his 25th season as manager, the past three since the Astros hired him to help the team regain credibility after the signal-stealing scandal that cost manager A.J. Hinch and general manager Jeff Lono their jobs, and made Houston the most hated team in baseball.

The 73-year-old Baker, who has twice competed in the World Championships twice before as a captain, is the oldest manager of the tournament.
