Gathered at Nationals Park hours before the start of the third game of the World Series to enjoy something that hasn't been seen in the area since 1933.

The last time a Major League Baseball (MLB) team from D.C.

Played in the World Series they were known as the Washington Senators and they lost to the New York Giants in five games.

The Senators one and only World Series title came in 1924 when they beat the Giants in seven games.

The 2019 Nationals have the city and it's fans excited as they return to D.C.

With a two games to none lead in the best-of-seven series after winning twice in Houston earlier this week.

A Houston fan is sticking by the Astros, wagering a reported $8.5 million that the American League team will stage a comeback to win the World Series.

Jim McIngvale, who calls himself "Mattress Mack", originally bet $3.5 million with a Mississippi casino that the Astros would claim the best-of-seven series, the Houston Chronicle reported.

He added another million after the Nationals surprised the Astros in the series opener in Houston on Tuesday.

The Houston furniture store owner also has bets in Nevada and New Jersey which the Chronicle said could bring in more than $15 million if the Astros win the World Series.

McIngvale placed the bets as a hedge against the possibility that he will have to refund $15 million or more in mattress purchases made by customers as part of his furniture store's "Win it All" promotion, the Chronicle reported.

Customers who make qualified purchases of $3,000 or more will receive refunds if the Astros win the World Series.
