And that's the sweep. Longest scoreless game in MLB history. Astros win 1-0 in 18.

Also was good to see BeanBall Castilo give up the winning 3 run HR in game 2.

Now the Mariners can sink back into oblivion. The ONLY MLB franchise to never appear in a World Series. And one of 6 not to have won one.

I don’t seem to remember my Montreal Expo’s winning . Mariners look good going forward , their pitching is great and young . Robbie Ray maybe made himself dispensable but should have a good return . But moods to the Astros they have been on top all year and they showed why .

They won as the Washington Nationals.

Of course, the Expos probably would have won it as the Expos in 1994 making it 3 years in a row of a Canadian World Series winner had their not been that strike.

the year of the strike ? Going by recollection they were 1 game back of Oakland when the strike happened .
That is the record straight from mlb.com. mlb.com re-arranged the teams in current division format so GBL is hard to figure out. It looked like the west was pretty weak that year though. So they indeed may have been in it.

I just remember how pissed I was at baseball for that strike , the Expos were dominating and the Mariners charging with a chance . Then nothing , stopped watching for a long time after that .

Same here. I used to do 10-12 games attendance per year. Haven't really gotten back to that level.

I think there was a hockey strike around the same time, I really became less sports focused after those 2 strikes.
