HOUSTON, Texas -- Remember the man who opted to save his two beers than to catch a World Series homer during Game 5? He was in the crowd in Houston on Tuesday for Game 6.

The funny moment happened Sunday, during Game 5 when Astros' Yordan Alvarez hit a 2-home run during the second inning. The ball went flying out into the stands where it hit the Washington Nationals fan who had his hands full with the two cans of Bud Light.
