Houston Astros Game Seven World Series Victors Were Probably Motivated by One Run Showing in Game Six Loss


One can imagine that the young stars of the Houston Astros were angry having scored only one run in game six, and it seems to have served them well in game seven, scoring five runs early to go on to win the Word Series. Ironically perhaps the pivotal point in the game was when the slowest man on the field, grizzled veteran catcher Brian McCann, scored from third base on a slow infield grounder which was played by the second baseman wrongly positioned too deep for the circumstance.
