Texas lawmakers celebrated the Houston Astros’ World Series win Wednesday, which came just months after Hurricane Harvey caused destruction throughout the region.
The Astros beat the Los Angeles Dodgers, 5-1, in Game 7 of the series Wednesday night to claim the first championship in their 56-year history.
Rep. Jimmy Gomez, D-Calif., who represents the district where Dodgers Stadium is located, congratulated Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas, who represents the district where the Astros’ Minute Maid Park is located, on Twitter and promised to pay off on the bet they had made over the Series.
