One more 'Curly W' to go!

Just when you think you're out, the Washington Nationals pull you back in! (Of course, the opposite is true for Trea Turner: Just when you think he is safe, the umpires make a mess of it and pull him and manager Davey Martinez back off the field.)

The Nats, after taking Game 1 and the next night Game 2 in Houston, dropped three-straight at home to the Astros and looked finish. But then Game 6 happened. And the friendly confines of Minute Maid Park have been perfect for the Nationals.

Despite falling behind 2-1 after a rocky a start, Stephen Strasburg dominated Houston batters and cruised to an 8 1/3 inning performance and the once-dormant Nationals bats erupted for seven runs with homers from Adam Eaton, a moon-shot from Juan Soto, and a two-run blast by Anthony Rendon (who added an RBI single and a two-run double in the 8th for good measure) gave the Nationals a 7-2 win to extend the World Series to a Game 7.

And calling all the action: Charlie Slowes and Dave Jageler with the memorable calls on 106.7 The Fan.
