The Houston Astros and Los Angeles Dodgers will wrap up the World Series tonight at the conclusion of Game 7.
Going into Game 6 Tuesday night, the Astros were ahead of the Dodgers by one game. Had the Astros pulled out a win, the series would have been over.
However, the series was forced into a seventh game after the Dodgers scored a game-winning run in the sixth inning on a sacrifice fly from Corey Seager.
The Dodgers’ win was also assisted by the fact that over the first six innings, Houston pitcher Justin Verlander allowed three hits and two runs.
No matter who wins the series after Game 7, it will be a historic win.
The Astros, founded in 1962, have never won a World Series. The Dodgers, founded in 1883, haven’t won a World Series since 1988.
Only time will tell.
Game 7 will take place tonight in Dodger Stadium, the third oldest-stadium in the league, at 7:20 p.m. Central Time in Los Angeles.
