The Washington Nationals are back. After a string of three losses at home in the World Series, the Nats beat the Astros in Game 6 to tie up the Fall Classic.
On Wednesday night, the winner of Game 7 will be crowned champions.
This year marks the first time the Nats franchise has ever gone on to the Fall Classic — and it's the first time D.C. has hosted since the 1930s.
Here's everything you need to know about the Nats in the World Series.
Nationals Battle Houston Astros
In the Nats' first-ever National League Championship Series appearance, they swept the St. Louis Cardinals in a stunning victory.
Over the past week, they've been up against the winner of the American League Championship Series, the Houston Astros, who edged out the New York Yankees over six games. The Astros won their first-ever World Series in 2017, and now fans are rallying around a chant to "take it back."
The Nats initially proved themselves a worthy opponent, besting the Astros in Games 1 and 2 of the World Series. But they lost all three home games at Nats Park. Now the best-of-seven series will wrap up in Houston.
