The defending World Series-Champion Houston Astros won the World Series in 2017 and continue their winning streak with being the first team in the Majors to reach 50 wins Wednesday night before a sellout crowd at Minute Maid Park.

The Astros determination to rule the game from the beginning had a minor setback after losing to the Mariners, in some stressful ways, the Astros had to up their game and vowed no more. Defeating the Rays, 5-4, on Monday night, the plays were set in place and the Astros are on a 12-game winning streak then.

The Astros showed what can happen when doing well with hitting four solo homers, including a back-to-back in the sixth inning, plus rode six innings of one-run ball from starter Charlie Morton to the Rays, 5-1, for their 13th win in their last 14 games.
