The 2022 World Cup is headed to Philadelphia. The Philadelphia Phillies and Houston Astros split Games 1 and 2 at Minute Maid Park over the weekend, so the World Series is now a best-of-five series as it shifts to Citizens Bank Park for Games 3-5. The third game was played on Monday night, and the series will continue on Tuesday.

Oddly, the Phillies are 1-3 in Game 2 this postseason and 9-0 in all other games. They certainly hope that trend continues after dropping Game 2 and allowing the Astros to even the series. Houston is 8-1 in nine postseason games this October, and in one loss they had a 5-0 lead. They have been ahead in every game so far.

Overview

One thing’s for sure: The Phillies are looking to avoid another 5-0 deficit in Game 3. They fell behind 5-0 early in Game 1, but pulled off a remarkable comeback to earn the win in the 10th inning. Then in the second game they fell behind 5-0 and lost. The Astros are doing a great job of jumping out to early leads this October — not just against the Phillies, in all of their postseason games — and the Phillies need to put them away early to have the best chance to win Game 3. You can only play from behind so much and beat a team as good as Houston.

Prediction

On paper, the pitching advantage is in Houston’s favor because. Philadelphia’s rotation is lagging a bit Aaron Nola and Zack Wheeler. There’s more to life than starting matches, but sometimes one team has an advantage that’s too big to ignore. I have the Astros in Game 3.

Select: Astros 5, Phillies 3
