The Houston Astros triumphed over the Philadelphia Phillies 5-2 to tie the World Series at one win apiece, following a remarkable first innings performance by the Astros. The Phillies’ Zack Wheeler was unable to withstand the onslaught, conceding two runs in four pitches, while a blunder from Edmundo Sosa in the shortstop position saw the Astros take a 3-0 lead in the first innings. Framber Valdez’s strong six innings pitch maintained the Astros’ lead, while Alex Bregman’s two-run homer in the fifth further expanded the lead to five. Jean Segura’s sacrifice fly finally saw the Phillies get on the scoreboard in the seventh inning, with Nick Castellanos reaching home. However, despite picking up another run in the final inning, the Phillies were unable to catch up. With nine strikeouts and just one earned run, Valdez was impressive. Game three of the World Series will be held at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia on Monday night, marking its first World Series since 2009.
