Washington Nationals beat St. Louis Cardinals to reach World Series for the very first time

The MLB team Washington Nationals are through to the World Series for the very first time in the franchise history following their 7-4 win against the St. Louis Cardinals. Washington’s were able to make a 4-game clean sweep of the Cardinals in the National League Championship Series.

Their win was cemented with the 7-run 1st inning and the city celebrated its first-ever World Series win since the appearance of Senators back in 1933.

As for a clean sweep of the National League Championship Series, this was also the first since 2015 when the MLB team New York Mets won against Chicago Cubs. This is the 2nd sweep of the NLCS in the last 12 years.

Up next is the wait for the Washington Nationals to see the winner of the American League Championship Series between the New York Yankees and the Houston Astros.

The Astros are currently leading the ALCS by 2-1 against the Yankees in the best of 7 series.

With Nationals moving up to the World Series the pressure over the manager of the team Dave Martinez is now reduced by much as he was under scrutiny for the 19-31 start of the season.

Ryan Zimmerman, the veteran player of the Nationals, who had been with the club since it moved from Montreal to Washington, said, “What a group of guys and what an amazing ride. This is about as good as it can get and we are still not done.”

The only baseball championship for Washington came back in 1924 when the San Francisco Giants were defeated by the Senators.
