It was no slugfest like Sunday's Game 5, but Tuesday's Game 6 delivered on excitement. The Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the Houston Astros 3-1 to send the World Series to a Game 7 to take place Wednesday in Los Angeles.
Dodgers players and owner Magic Johnson were pretty pumped about the win.
Current and former major league players, famous fans and the mayors of Los Angeles and Houston offered their thoughts, too.

I am reminded of what my Mom use to say "tomorrow will be better than today". Wed night 2.3M Houstonians will take the field w/Astros. st— Sylvester Turner (@SylvesterTurner) November 1, 2017
this is why I love baseball. One game came be offensive fireworks & the next game can be an amazing pitching/defensive battle! #WorldSeries— Mark Melancon (@Mark_Melancon_) November 1, 2017
Last year's World Series between the eventual champion Chicago Cubs and Cleveland Indians also lasted seven games, which makes 2016 and 2017 the first back-to-back years in which the Fall Classic reached seven games since 2001 and 2002.
November baseball has arrived.
