A six-run seventh inning, started by a solo shot from Kurt Suzuki, broke a 2-2 tie and handed Washington its second win in Houston. The series now shifts to Nationals Park.

The Nationals scored 10 runs in the final three innings Tuesday night, which meant lots and lots of dancing.

  • Perspective

The Nationals will take a 2-0 series lead over the vaunted Houston Astros back to Washington. Don’t just consider what that means. Embrace it.


Game 2 was held in Houston, but Nationals fans turned out at their home field.

The Nationals have a 1-0 lead in the World Series. Here’s the remaining schedule, how to watch and more.

  • Analysis

Having deployed third starter Patrick Corbin in relief in Game 1, the approach has altered the team’s rotation plans.

In watching his hit instead of sprinting, Springer “got caught up in the moment of the play, in the anxiousness to see if the ball was leaving,” said Astros Manager A.J. Hinch.

  • Analysis

There have been 18 sacrifice bunt attempts in the playoffs this year, and the Nationals account for 12 of them.

"We're dressed for success," said Sean Doolittle, who earned the save in Game 1.

The original National described running around the bases as “floating.”

  • Analysis

The American League champions were determined not to let Juan Soto beat them, but the Nationals’ slugger obliterated those plans with a powerful World Series debut in Game 1.

Max Scherzer got worked hard by Houston, and the relievers were shaky at times, but Juan Soto and the Washington offense gave the team just enough to win on the road.

  • Perspective

Game 1 was a heart attack of a win in Washington’s first Fall Classic appearance in 86 years. Are you ready for more?

  • Analysis

Patrick Corbin works an efficient sixth before Tanner Rainey, Daniel Hudson and Sean Doolittle navigate the last three innings of Game 1 win.

Cole entered this Game 1 of the World Series with a run of 19 straight winning decisions, the longest streak of any pitcher in a year since Rube Marquard in 1912.

  • Perspective

Gerrit Cole and the Astros found out the hard way just how good the Nationals’ young slugger really is in Game 1 of the World Series.

You’ve only recently caught World Series fever, and that’s okay. We’re here to help you get up to speed.

The glasses were a promotional giveaway outside of Comerica Park in Detroit, but Gerardo Parra hints that there is more to the story.

Scherzer likes to stay on the mound as long as possible. The designated hitter should help.

Houston is a heavy favorite at sports books, too.
