We look back at the biggest takeaways from Game 7 of the World Series where the Washington Nationals came from behind to win.
The Washington Nationals made history in Game 7 of the World Series by winning the franchise’s first every championship.
But beyond that, they were also the first team to ever have five comeback wins in elimination games in a postseason.
And is that really surprising to anyone at this point?
This team was written off before the midway point of the regular season. People wanted to fire the manager.
And yet this team stayed the course, never lost sight, and in an epic World Series, they came from behind to win again.
After being down 2-0 through the first six innings of the game and the Nationals offense completely silent, they scored 6 runs in the final three innings of the game, while the bullpen held on for the save.
Dave Martinez, the guy everyone wanted to fire early in the season, pushed all of the right buttons with the pitching staff in Game 7.
Meanwhile, Astros manager A.J. Hinch will be questioned for a while for not brining in Gerrit Cole when the Astros had a lead late in the game — despite Cole warming up earlier in the game.
It was a wild finish to a crazy World Series and one that saw the road team win every game.
Let’s take a look at some of the biggest takeaways from the Nationals historic World Series win.
