The World Series…
American League juggernaut Houston Astros (107-55 regular season record) versus the National League’s Washington Nationals (93-69, starting the season a teetering 19-31.)
Looks to me like an Astros “Sweep.” (Astros winning four-games-to-nothing, in a “Best of Seven” game series.)
First two games, played on the Astros home field –
Washington wins both games.
Head-scratching, but interesting.
Next three games, played on the Nationals’ home field –
Astros win all three.
Now that’s better. Astros lead three-games-to-two, heading to Houston for “Game Six.” And “Game Seven.” If necessary.
Washington wins “Game Six.”
Series tied three-games-to-three.
Okay, “Game Seven.” Here we go.
Astros take a 2-0 lead into the seventh inning, and there you have it.
Baseball and Life:
A winding road to an inevitable ending.
Washington scores three runs in the seventh, one in the eight, and two in the ninth.
Washington wins “Game Seven” and the Series.
Hm. I guess baseball isn’t like Life.
Only one of them has an inevitable ending.
And it certainly ain’t baseball.
Congrats to the Nats!
I was rootin’ for you all the way.
(Note: I actually was. I am a life-long “Underdogs” guy. Which I temporarily forgot, but remembered, right after the first pitch.)
