Washington awaits the victor of the American League Championship Series between the Houston Astros and New York Yankees.
The Washington Nationals on Tuesday night became the first team representing D.C.to clinch a berth in the World Series in 86 years with a four-game sweep of the St. Louis Cardinals. The Nationals were an abysmal 19-31 through May 23 with talk that manager Dave Martinez could be fired. The Astros now hold a 2-1 series lead heading into Game 4, which is scheduled to be played on Thursday evening. "People always get caught up in the things that are on paper, but the reality of it is you have to go out and play". The figure is down from 3.2 million viewers per game past year, despite four fewer games being played in the 2018 Division Series round. The only baseball championship for the city came in 1924, when the Senators beat the Giants.
A team from Washington has not made the World Series since the Washington Senators made the World Series in 1933, when they lost for a second time in nine seasons. The Nationals needed a Game 5 win at Dodger Stadium to advance.
The Cardinals never led in the series and were outscored 20-6 in the four games.
