LOS ANGELES — Chris Devenski came to the World Series with a brief postseason history that was, by his own admission, marked by nerves that caused him to pitch poorly.

Now, he says he’s not only past that, but he’s got a World Series victory to show for it.

“The nerves are gone,” the Houston Astros right-hander said after finishing the Astros’ 7-6, 11-inning victory in Game 2 on Wednesday night. “I was able to overcome them.”

A product of Cerritos High and Cal State Fullerton, Devenski began the World Series with the added element of pitching in front of his Southern California friends and family.
