Houston Astros Win World Series: Fireworks in Downtown Houston

The Houston Astros won the World Series 6–2 after winning Game Six 4–1 against the Philadelphia Phillies at Minute Maid Park in Houston on Saturday night.

Jubilant fans poured out into the streets of downtown Houston Saturday night. A video shared by Twitter user @NickScurfield shows the crowds outside as fireworks explode overhead.

Houston’s first championship, in 2017, remains marred by scandal after a sign-stealing operation was uncovered in 2019.

Astros pitcher Justin Verlander got his first World Series win in Game Five, and longtime manager Dusty Baker, who once won the title as a player, has now won his first World Series as a manager.
