The Washington Nationals celebrating on the field after clinching the World Series title.

Entering the 2019 MLB season the Washington Nationals were far from favorites to win the World Series. They lost arguably their best player, Bryce Harper, in the offseason to the Philadelphia Phillies.
With a 19-31 record after the month of May, it wasn’t looking good for the Nats to even make the postseason.
However, after breaking into the 2019 Major League Baseball postseason as a wildcard team, the Nationals defied the odds and won it all. Washington defeated the Houston Astros in the 2019 World Series to win for the first time in franchise history.
