For the second straight year, a former Razorback has won the World Series. 

Former Hogs pitcher Ryan Stanek won a championship ring Saturday when his Houston Astros took down the Philadelphia Phillies 4-1 in Game 6, winning the series 4-2. 

It marks the second World Series title in Astros history, and Stanek becomes the second consecutive Razorback to win the World Series after Drew Smyly won the title with the Atlanta Braves last season.

In the Astros' postseason run, Stanek pitched in five games, tossing three total scoreless innings with six strikeouts.
