For the second time in six years (and the second time in franchise history), the Houston Astros are World Series champions.

Houston took down the Philadelphia Phillies 4-1 in Game 6 on Saturday night at Minute Maid Park.

The Astros trailed 2-1 in the series, but they threw a no-hitter in Game 4, grinded out a one-run victory in Game 5, and then had a fourth-run sixth inning to blow open Game 6 (after trailing 1-0). A 2-1 series deficit turned into a 4-2 series win.

The Phillies took a 1-0 lead on a Kyle Schwarber home run in the top of the sixth, but Houston answered in a big way in the bottom half of the inning.

Yordan Álvarez absolutely annihilated an offering from Jose Alvarado and sent it 450 feet to dead center. This is a mind-blowing lefty-lefty bomb on the biggest stage in baseball:

Starting pitcher Framber Valdez was excellent on the mound for Houston, allowing two hits, one run, and two walks, while striking out nine over six innings.

Houston rookie shortstop Jeremy Peña was named World Series MVP (and hopefully you took our advice on that prop bet). He certainly did an incredible job replacing Carlos Correa.

And this is the first championship Dusty Baker has ever won as a manager. The 73-year-old began managing in the majors with the San Francisco Giants in 1993.

Here’s a look at how the baseball world is reacting to Houston’s World Series title:
