    The Houston Astros have won the 2022 World Series, defeating the Philadelphia Phillies four games to two by a final score of 4 to 1.

    This year, the Astros won the Fall Classic since their infamous cheating scandal in 2017. The Phillies have not won a World Series since 2008.

    The Astros, managed by Dusty Baker, also featured the second combined no-hitter in World Series history during Game 3 on November 3. Game 6 was played in Minute Maid Park in Houston, Texas.

    The game was tied zero to zero until Kyle Schwarber, outfielder for the Phillies, knocked out a solo home run in the sixth inning. Shortly after, the Astros' Yordan Alvarez cranked out a 450-foot three-run homer to take the lead in the bottom of the sixth.

    Baker had won the World Series as a player in 1981 with the Los Angeles Dodgers, yet struggled to complete the task as a manager in his decades-long career.

    The victory was also historic for gambling reasons as well for James Franklin McIngvale - a major Astros fan and legendary mattress businessman in the Houston area.

    "Mattress Mack placed $10M in bets on the Astros to win the World Series - at blended +750 odds across multiple sportsbooks," Front Office Sports tweeted. "He just won $75 million - the largest legal payout in sports betting history."

    Jeremy Peña, the Astros' shortstop, won World Series MVP.
