After completing their sweep of the St. Louis Cardinals in the NLCS on Tuesday, all the Washington Nationals can do now is wait to see who their opponent will be in this year's World Series.
For the Nationals, this is the first time in franchise history that they've reached the World Series. From 1969-2004, they were the Montreal Expos before relocating to the nation's capital in 2005.
Washington becomes the last National League team to reach a World Series, and the second-to-last in MLB (Seattle Mariners).
Either the Houston Astros or New York Yankees will face the Nationals. In the ALCS, the series is currently 2-1 Houston, with Game 4 tonight in New York following yesterday's (Wednesday) rainout.
The stars of the Nationals have not disappointed this month. Between Max Scherzer and Steven Strasburg, the two have a combined 5-0 record over eight games (six starts) with a 1.71 ERA, while Howie Kendrick (NLCS MVP), Anthony Rendon, Juan Soto, and Ryan Zimmerman have combined for 28 of the team's 43 RBIs.
Regardless of who the Nationals face, it promises to be a very exciting World Series.
