Dodgers take out ad in Houston Chronicle to congratulate Astros

It's been less than a week since the Los Angeles Dodgers and Houston Astros finished off one of the more exciting World Series in recent years.

Despite losing Game 7 at home in Los Angeles, the Dodgers gave a salute to the champions back in Texas by taking out a full-page color ad in Sunday's special edition of the Houston Chronicle commemorating the Astros' title.

The gesture featured a photo of Dodgers manager Dave Roberts embracing Astros manager A.J. Hinch, along with a simple message of congratulations.

On Monday, the Astros tweeted at the Dodgers to express their appreciation toward the act.

Houston's World Series victory was the first in franchise history, while Los Angeles' championship drought has now reached 30 years.
