WASHINGTON - The Washington Nationals are hoping to bounce back as the team heads back to Houston for Game 6 of the World Series Tuesday night.
The Nationals are facing elimination after dropping all of their home games to the Astros who now have a three-games-to-two lead in the contest.
The Astros can clinch a World Series victory with a win in Game 6 as the team seeks their second championship in three years. If the Nationals can steal a victory they will force a winner-take-all Game 7 on Wednesday.
If the Nationals are going to win a championship they will have to do so on the road. The team will need to win both Game 6 and Game 7 at Minute Maid Park. Interestingly enough, all wins this series -- from both the Nationals and the Astros -- have come while playing at their opponent's ballpark.
Houston's Gerrit Cole struck out nine over seven innings of the Astros' 7-1 victory in D.C. on Sunday. Yordan Alvarez, Carlos Correa and George Springer hit two-run homers for the Astros.
