On Tuesday night, the Houston Astros hosted Game 6 of the World Series against the Washington Nationals at Minute Maid Park.

After dropping the first two games of the series at home, the Astros won three-straight in Washington D.C. to take a 3-2 lead in the series. The Nationals responded with a 7-2 win in Game 6 to even the series and force a Game 7.

The win, however, was not without controversy. If the Astros had won, we'd be talking about a very controversial call made late in the game.

In the top of the seventh inning, Nationals shortstop Trea Turner appeared to hit safely into first. Umpires called Turner out for interfering with the play at first base.

Video clearly shows him running straight down the line - but the call stood. Fans were not happy with the play, but Justin Verlander's wife, Kate Upton, said it's the right call.

"He wasn’t within the base path. Those who don’t know the rule you HAVE to run inside the 2 lines. Not sure why the review is taking so long..." Upton said on Twitter.

The play resulted in Turner being called out, but Anthony Rendon hit a two-run home run in the same half inning to extend the Nationals lead.

First pitch of Game 7 is set for 8:08 p.m. ET on FOX.
