The Washington Nationals beat the Houston Astros 7-2 in Game 6 of the World Series on Tuesday.

The Nationals’ win evened the series at 3-3 and forced a decisive Game 7.

Adam Eaton and Juan Soto hit solo homeruns off the Astros’ Justin Verlander in the fifth to help the Nationals take the lead after trailing 2-1.

Stephen Strasburg pitched nearly the whole game for the Nationals, bringing his post-season record to 5-0.

This is the first series in which the visiting team has won the first six games. “Maybe they enjoy our park and maybe we enjoy their park,” said Anthony Rendon, who homered and drove in five runs for the Nationals. “We’re not going to ask questions.”

Game 7 is Wednesday in Houston.
