Game 7 of the World Series saw the Houston Astros defeat the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-1 to take the title, and the announcers calling the game handled the final out quite differently. First, here’s Dan Shulman on ESPN Radio:
Here’s Joe Buck on Fox:
It’s interesting that both broadcasts were somewhat surprised by Corey Seager swinging at the first pitch, but both recovered very well to call the play. Both also emphasized that this was Houston’s first World Series win. On the international feed, Matt Vasgersian didn’t play that up. That broadcast was also more set ahead of the pitch:

All of these worked pretty well, though. As did this one from Rob Ford on the Astros’ radio broadcast:
Solid calls all around.
