The 2022 World Series began Friday night as Philadelphia Phillies stunned the Houston Astros with a comeback victory in the first game. The Phillies erased an earlier five-run deficit against Justin Verlander, and beat JT Realmuto on a 10th inning homer. Philadelphia is now three wins away from a third World Series title in franchise history (also in 1980 and 2008). Meanwhile, Houston will try to even the series at home on Saturday night.

Historically, teams that win the first game of a best-of-seven series have won the series 64 percent of the time, although the winner of Game 1 has won the last four World Series and 13 of the last 16 World Series. The streak is far from over, but the Phillies put themselves in a good spot by stealing Game 1 despite a 5-0 loss to Verlander.

Featured game | Houston Astros vs. Philadelphia Phillies

Overview

Philadelphia’s team of destiny continued in Game 1 with a five-run comeback and a game-saving catch Nick Castellanos, one of the worst defensive outfielders in the sport. Still, the win in Game 1 showed just how dangerous the Phillies are. Their lineup is full of plus hit tools and guys Manager Ron Thomson pushed all the right buttons this October. The Astros were the better team over a long 162-game season, although the better team doesn’t always win short postseason series. Houston lost home field advantage in the series and lost a game behind the team’s ace. A Game 2 win to avoid a 2-0 series deficit heading back to Philadelphia is imperative.

Prediction

All signs point to the Phillies in Game 2. They have their ace on the mound in Wheeler and the offense was much more productive against lefties than righties during the regular season. Still, Valdez is no ordinary lefty, and I find it hard to believe these Astros are going to lose two straight at home. Houston is the pick in game two.

Select: Astros 5, Phillies 3
