It was a winner-take-all contest between the Los Angeles Dodgers and Houston Astros for the World Series crown.

The visiting Texans overwhelmingly took the game from the boys in blue at Dodgers Stadium in Los Angeles on Wednesday with a 5-1 victory to finally call themselves World Series champions for the first time in 55 years as an MLB franchise.

Kate Upton was spotted behind home plate to cheer on fiancé and Astros pitcher Justin Verlander.

The model wore her love’s last name on the back of a custom denim jacket and was transfixed during the game.

Joining her in her excitement was Houston native Travis Scott. The father-to-be and boyfriend of Kylie Jenner jumped out of his seat and yelled as his team won.

Celebrities also congratulated the Astros on their historic win on social media.

“Hell of a series. One for the ages. ‘Twas a great season for the Dodgers. Sending congrats to the Astros & the city of Houston,” Joseph Gordon-Levitt tweeted.

Houston Texans star J.J. Watt marked the big win by tweeting in all caps: “WORLD CHAMPIONS!”

Also there in person – but probably not as excited as Upton and Scott – was Zac Efron, who arrived at the stadium decked out in blue to show support for the hometown team.

Other high-profile fans in the stands included Jason Bateman, Judd Apatow, George Lopez, Rob Lowe, Kirsten Dunst, Nicole Richie, Jared Leto, and Jimmy Kimmel.

Fun fact: Wednesday was also only time the third oldest ballpark in baseball — behind Fenway Park and Wrigley Field — had ever hosted a World Series Game 7.

Meanwhile, at Houston’s Minute Maid Park, the local crowd of 17,000 had an absolute party to commemorate the historic win.
