The Dodgers made quick work of the Diamondbacks, defeating them in three games. The Astros were able to beat the Red Sox in four games, with fans calling it a disappointing series because of Boston’s lack of confidence in the games against Houston. The Cubs defeated the Nationals and the Yankees conquered the Indians, bringing everyone to the edge of their seat because of the intensity each team brought to the field. The championship series for both the American and National leagues pitted the Cubs vs the Dodgers and the Astros vs the Yankees in the most highly anticipated championship rounds of all time. The Dodgers were able to defeat the Cubs in five games with ease. The Astros, however, fought with the most tenacity of any team this postseason and defeated the Yankees by winning in seven games.

In the end, it came down to the Dodgers vs the Astros in the World Series. Each team gave it all they had, trading wins back and forth. After an intense game seven, the Houston Astros were able to walk away with a 5-1 victory and win the 2017 World Series. Houston Astros’ second basemen, Jose Altuve, said “I always believed we could make it.” The entire postseason, as a whole, gave the fans memories to last a lifetime.
