The Houston Astros are your 2022 World Series champions!

After going down 2-1 to the Philadelphia Phillies in the series, the Astros capped off their playoff run with three straight wins that culminated in a 4-1 victory in Game 6 at Minute Maid Park to capture their second title since 2017.

The American League's No. 1 seed went undefeated in the first two rounds as they rolled to their fourth Fall Classic in six years. The Phillies -- October's biggest underdog and the sixth seed in the National League, with the worst regular-season record of any team in the playoffs -- upset their way to their first World Series since 2009.

We have all the latest -- schedules, results, analysis and more -- from the World Series, plus the newly formatted (and thrilling) postseason that got us here.
