  Watch: Howie Kendrick with go-ahead HR in Game 7 of the World Series After staying quiet through six innings, the Washington Nationals' bats exploded for three runs in the seventh inning, including the go-ahead, 2-run shot by NLCS MVP Howie Kendrick to take the Nats' first lead of Game 7.Astros starter Zack Greinke was dominating through six-plus innings.

It was stunning because first they used back-to-back home runs off Clayton Kershaw in the top of the 8th to tie the game, then veteran Howie Kendrick, who previously played for the Dodgers, won it for the Nationals with a grand slam off Joe Kelly in the top of the 10th.

And just like that the team with the best record in baseball this year was done for the season and the wild-card winning Nationals advanced to face the Cardinals in the NLCS.

Hinch: "I'll have to live with" bullpen decision in Game 7 .
HOUSTON (AP) — Astros manager AJ Hinch had options. There was Zack Greinke, a veteran ace showing his first signs of fatigue. Out in the bullpen, Gerrit Cole was watching. And of course, Will Harris was warming. What came next, Hinch will contemplate for years. "It's a decision I'll have to live with," he said. After Greinke allowed a homer to Anthony Rendon and walked Juan Soto, Hinch handed a 2-1 lead to Harris in the seventh inning of World Series Game 7. In Harris' first at-bat, Howie Kendrick drove a two-run, go-ahead homer off the right field foul pole screen — a haymaker that stunned Houston in a 6-2 defeat that cost them the chance at a second title in two years.
