ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Corey Seager hit a rare October double, becoming Most Valuable Player of the World Series after earning the honor for the League Championship Series.

Just as Orel Hershiser did when the Los Angeles Dodgers won their previous World Series title in 1988.

Seager hit .400 with two homers, five RBIs and six walks against Tampa Bay, including a sixth-inning grounder that allowed Mookie Betts to speed home with the go-ahead run in Game 6.

The star shortstop jumped into the arms of second baseman Kiké Hernández after Julio Urías struck out Willy Adames to end a 3-1 win that clinched the championship.
