The Washington Nationals have swept the St. Louis Cardinals to advance to the first World Series in Expos/Nationals history. It is the first World Series in DC since the old Senators/Nationals team in 1933. That team moved to Minnesota in the 1960's to become the Twins.

The Nationals await the winner of the Yankees and Astros in the ALCS. Game one of the World Series will be Tuesday, October 22nd.
