At age 73 with 2,093 regular-season victories and nine division titles under his belt, Dusty Baker is now a World Series-winning manager. “I said if I win one, I want to win two,” he said.

“No doubt, this is staying with me,” said the Astros fan who caught Yordan Alvarez’s go-ahead home run ball. “This is my title memory right here.”

Jeremy Peña became the first rookie in World Series history to record a hit in each of the first six games. He earns World Series MVP honors.

Yuli Gurriel missed the remainder of the World Series with a knee injury.

Joel Sherman of the New York Post wrote about how Cristian Javier being pulled from Game 4, despite a no-hitter in tact, was indicative of modern baseball.

“I mean, I got 2,000 wins and all they talk about is I haven’t won the World Series yet, you know?” Dusty Baker said. “So, yeah, it matters. It matters to the people. It matters to us.”
