WASHINGTON — For the first time in franchise history, the Washington Nationals are going to the World Series. 

After an electric 7-4 win against the St. Louis Cardinals, and a 4-0 series sweep in the NLCS, the Nats were ready to party. And party they did with players donning goggles in the locker room and spraying one another with champagne.

It’s been 86 years since the last time Washington hosted a World Series game. In 1933, the Washington Senators lost to the New York Giants in five games.  

If the Nationals win the World Series, they would be the first team from D.C. to win since 1924, when the Senators defeated the New York Giants.
