ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Minute Maid Park erupted in cheers, tears, and hugs as the Houston Astros won their first World Series Wednesday night. Fans packed the stadium to watch the game on the big screen as the Astros took on the Dodgers in Los Angeles in Game Seven. The team scored a 5-1 victory to earn their first World Series win. The Astros clinched the best-of-seven series 4-3 for the first franchise title in a 55-year existence, and did so against a Dodgers team that had Major League Baseball's best regular season record. The Astros jumped on Dodgers starting pitcher Yu Darvish early, scoring all five runs in the first two innings before riding a long string of relief pitchers to the win at Dodger Stadium.
