Maui Gains Another World Series ChampOctober 30, 2019, 9:59 PM HST · Updated October 30, 9:59 PM 67 Comments
After overcoming a two-run deficit, the Washington Nationals defeated the Houston Astros 6-2 in Game Seven of the World Series Wednesday night, earning the franchise its first-ever title.
Baldwin High School graduate Kurt Suzuki was removed from the starting lineup merely hours before the gameʻs first pitch.
This is the fourth consecutive game Suzuki missed with a hip injury.
But with the Nationals’ historic win, Suzuki becomes Maui’s second World Series champion since Shane Victorino in 2013, and the seventh for the state of Hawai’i.
In a Facebook post, the County of Maui congratulated Suzuki on the win.
“CONGRATULATIONS to Maui boy KURT SUZUKI for winning the World Series with the Washington Nationals,” the post read.
