George Springer set a record Tuesday night when he homered in his fifth consecutive World Series game, a seventh-inning homer off Washington Nationals reliever Tanner Rainey.

Springer had homered in the final four games of the 2017 World Series for the Houston Astros, winning MVP honors in the process.

"I'd rather win," Springer said of the accomplishment following Houston's 5-4 loss in Game 1. "I mean, cool. Great. It's an honor ... but no doubt about it. I'd rather win."
