The Nationals have just made history. Going into this season, Washington had never won a World Series title, let alone a National League Championship either. Tonight in Game 4, the Washington Nationals beat the Saint Louis Cardinals 7-4 in a four-game sweep.
The Nationals were decent at the beginning of the season, but no one expected them to make it to the World Series!
Howie Kendrick had an amazing series and was awarded with the NLCS MVP. Later on, he would say:

“Some of the best things come from unexpected moments.”
As to who the Nationals will play in the World Series, two possible teams remain: The Houston Astros and the New York Yankees. Currently, the Astros have the edge with their 2-1 record as opposed to the Yankees…
Now that all of the MLB’s eyes are shifted over to the American League Championship Series… Who is your pick to win and take on Washington in the World Series.
