The Tampa Bay Rays have made it to the World Series of the North American professional baseball MLB for the second time in their history. The Rays beat the Houston Astros 4-2 in the seventh and decisive game of the American League finals on Saturday night (local time). Previously, the Astros, 2017 World Series winners, had equalized a 3-0 deficit in the series.
Tampa Bay will face either the Los Angeles Dodgers or Atlanta Braves in the Arlington, Texas World Series, who will also play a game seven in the National League final on Sunday evening (local time). The Dodgers, the best team of the regular season, which has been shortened significantly due to the corona pandemic, balanced the series with a 3-1 victory on Saturday.
The Tampa Bay Rays, which were founded in 1998 under the name Devil Rays, had first reached the World Series in 2008, but were subject to the Philadelphia Phillies. With the victory on Saturday they prevented the Astros from becoming the second team in MLB history to win a playoff series after a 3-0 deficit and being the first team to reach the World Series in the regular season despite a negative record.
Randy Arozarena was the first rookie to be named the most valuable player in a final series – the 25-year-old Cuban also set a rookie record with his seventh home run in the playoffs.
