Biggest comeback in Phils' postseason history. First ever postseason save for David Robertson in 38 postseason appearances. Rob Thomson managing every game like it's game 7. 2nd and 3rd for the Astros in the bottom of the 10th and they can't score. This is how the Phillies are going to have to win this series. 3 to go!

Dusty Baker taking lots of criticism for not pulling Justin Verlander earlier.  Speaking of Verlander, the guy struggles big time in World Series games which is strange since he has great ALDS and ALCS numbers.

ERA lifetime of over 6.00 in the World Series. Terrible numbers for a big stage. Tonight's starters are Zack Wheeler and Framber Valdez. Even match-up, although Wheeler has more strikeouts notched.

Astros are 1-3 in game one of the WS all time. This season they were 25-0 in games where they had a five-run or more lead going into last night.

Although it does help that a good number of those AL postseason games are against the Yankees. They can't figure Verlander out, but a lot of other teams can when it counts.

Methinks Dusty wanted to save his bullpen for Game 2, but look how that turned out.

This was Houston's first loss of the playoffs seeing as how they swept their last 2 opponents

As mentioned, every team that has entered the World Series undefeated in the postseason did not win that fall classic.  I can't really disagree with those saying Justin is overrated.

Houston got lucky against Seattle in a game with Verlander pitching, and not so much for Game 1.  That is a bad loss for the AL Champs.  Usually they do the rallying when it comes to runs, and when they're up, it's usually over.

We'll see if it's more Philadelphia being a great team or Houston getting a "lucky bounce" since they got the benefit of playing a worn out Yankees team with a non-favorable League Championship Series schedule.

If Bryce Harper determines that they'd rather not fly back to Houston, looks like the series is over.  I did ponder them winning in 5 but ended up saying they'd go the distance with the goal being to pick the actual series winner.  I think the Astros can survive tonight, but if they don't (and the Phillies don't crumble due to something unfortunate), then the fall classic will not be coming back to Houston on Friday

Astros win 5-2 to even the series. Valdez pitched brilliantly while Wheeler struggled with velocity and command. Still, if you had told me the series would be 1-1 going back to Philly before the World Series began, I would have taken it.

And now they'll have to wait until tomorrow night to start Game 3 in Philadelphia as tonight's game has been postponed due to rain.

Phillies handily take the series lead with a 7-0 Game 3 victory.

A revenge game for what it's worth.  The Houston Astros tie the series 2-2 with the second no-hitter in the history of the fall classic!

Third overall in postseason play. Verlander and Syndergaard are tomorrow's probables.

Astros take a 3-2 lead back to Houston. Justin Verlander gets his first win.

Pretty decent Game 5.  With the Astros one win away from the title (3-2 World Series lead), both teams travel back to Houston.  It's not over for Philly, but they will have to win both of their road games in order to capture their first title in 14 years & Harper first outright.

As mentioned, Verlander finally gets his first win in the fall classic.  Might be able to put an exclamation point toward his HOF career!

Game 6 pits Zack Wheeler against Framber Valdez. Should be a dandy game. Houston is a 1-1/2 run favorite.
