Padres Celebrate 2026 Title

Minneapolis, MN – The visiting Padres’ fans had reason to celebrate Saturday night as the Fall Classic’s final game went their way with a 4-3 victory. The win brought the Padres their first World Series title in franchise history in only their third overall appearance. The win was huge for a city without many major championships.

“It’s such an honor to bring home this hardware, especially given the road we took to get here,” said veteran starter Matt Harvey, who started two games in the series and won 15 games this season. “I’ve been here almost a decade, these are great fans, great city, it’s awesome to do this.”

Despite the Twins being heavily favored coming in, the Padres took a 3-1 series lead before Minnesota forced Game 7. Nonetheless, the Friars held serve in the end to take the title. “Tonight is all about this organization, its history, and bringing something new and deserved,” added Harvey. “We’re pumped and can’t wait to celebrate back home.”
