ABOUT DAMN TIME!
Call Mike Trout the zookeeper. That gorilla clutching to the New York AmeriCanadians' backs is gone, locked up in a cage and the key thrown away. New York, previously 0-for-3 in the World Series, beat the Toronto Avengers 4 games to 1 to secure its first championship - all thanks to Trout.
Named most valuable player of the Series, Trout homered in each of the first four games and finished 11-for-17 (.647 avg) with four HR, seven runs batted in, three doubles, a triple and five walks with just three strike outs. He saved his best for the big stage, after struggling in the National League Championship Series against Kansas City (3-for-21, seven strike outs).
Third baseman Josh Donaldson shined in the postseason, as he added five home runs in the series as he slashed .333/.407/.686 and drove in 12, and Dallas Keuchel was perfect in October, going 4-0 with a 2.17 ERA.
