Nationals first baseman Ryan Zimmerman and left fielder Juan Soto made history Tuesday in Game 1 of the World Series against the Houston Astros. 

Both players homered — making the Nationals the first team ever in the World Series to have gotten a home run from a player who is 20 years or younger (Soto) and a player who is 35 or older (Zimmerman). The Nationals won 5-4. 

Watch both homers below:



Soto was also the youngest player in MLB history to hit clean-up in the World Series, according to MLB.
