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

The game, and nearly the series, was put into question following a truly terrible call.

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.

Star third baseman Anthony Rendon responded with a two-run home run to give the Nationals a 5-2 lead. However, heading into the bottom half of the inning, manager Dave Martinez unleashed on the umpires for their blown call.

Martinez needed to be restrained and was later ejected from the game.

Check it out.

Martinez was visibly upset and with good reason.

The Nationals could have added an extra run as Turner should have been on base in the first place. Instead, Washington takes a 5-2 lead into the bottom of the seventh inning as Stephen Strasburg looks to finish an incredible performance.

Can the Nationals hang on and force a Game 7 in Houston later this week?

Stay tuned for the latest from the World Series.
