World Series Scores: The Phillies beat Astros in Game 3 to gain strength as Bryce Harper and Kyle Schwarber lead the home run playoffs.

The third game was worth the wait for the Philadelphia Phillies. After Monday’s Game 3 was delayed due to rain, the Phillies and Houston Astros were able to continue the World Series at Citizens Bank Park on Tuesday night, while the Phillies took five home runs and won 7-0 (box score). They lead the best-of-two series 2-1. With Philadelphia two wins away from the Championship, surprisingly the Phillies haven’t been at bat with a runner in a scoring position until the sixth inning, already 7-0 ahead. Bryce Harper opened the scoring with a two-run homer in the first inning, and the Phillies continued to score against Lance McCullers Jr. from there. The Phillies are perfect 6-0 at home this postseason. Here are some insights from Game 3 of the World Series. 1. Harper gave the Phillies a lead (again). The last pitch Harper saw at Citizens Bank Park ahead of Game 3 was a two-run home run over left field in the eighth inning of Game 5 of the NLCS. It was a pennant-winning home run. And on the first pitch Harper saw in Game 3, he hit a two-run homer in right field. A home run that is pitched consecutively at home. McCullers’ response tells you everything you need to know: “It’s just trying to get a good pitch at bat.” Harper said in an Indugout interview with Fox. “We met (McCullers) later that year and we got to see him pretty well. It’s a great team to be able to strike first because it’s a good team.” Check the checkbox to confirm if you would like to subscribe. Thanks for subscribing! Keep an eye on your inbox. sorry!

Only Albert Pujols has hit more home runs in a single postseason. He scored five in 2004. Astros was good at limiting Harper in games 1 and 2 (2 singles and 8 2s on a walk), but it was only a matter of time before he did one of his game-changing swings. It came out at the beginning of the 3rd round. 2. Bohm hit a groundbreaking home run. Ladies and gentlemen, here’s the 1,000th home run in World Series history. Alec Bomb was honored. He hit the first home run in World Series history in Game 1 of the 1903 World Series. That was when Pittsburgh Pirates’ Jimmy Sebring took the Boston Americans’ Cy Young deep. Cy Young, huh? You can’t get more brand names than this. Tuesday’s Game 3 was the first in World Series history when the team hit three home runs in their first two innings. Before Bohm’s at-bat, Harper called him to the dugout railing to impart his wisdom. Bohm didn’t reveal what Harper told him in a dugout interview (why he did?), but Bryce has a reputation for being one of the best in the game at capturing subtleties in a pitcher’s delivery. Is it possible that McCullers pitched in Game 3? 3. The McCullers have historically had a bad night. The Phillies weren’t over after Harper and Bohm hit home runs. Brandon Marsh (1 man), Kyle Schwarber (2 runs) and Rhys Hoskins (1 man) all pulled McCullers in late in the game, giving Philadelphia a 7-0 lead. McCullers became the first pitcher in history to allow five home runs in a World Series game. Here’s the home run onslaught that took the game out of reach. McCullers had never allowed more than three home runs in a game in his career before Game 3. Philadelphia lefties saw 34 pitches from a Houston right-handed pitcher, hit three home runs, swung and missed. only once. The Phillies joined the 2017 Astros (Game 5) and are the second team with five other players to go deep into a World Series game. To be fair to McCullers, he probably shouldn’t have played in the 5th, and certainly not when Marsh hit a single out of a single. He made it through the lineup twice and looked shaky for most of the night, and Astros still dominated the game in a 4-0 loss. McCullers remained, Schwarber and Hoskins were hit by streak bombs and suddenly the game was out of reach. 4. Suarez was an excellent ranger. Suarez’s performance in the home run offensive should not be forgotten. The 27-year-old Southpaw shut out five innings against the high-performance Astros and only four of the 19 batters he faced hit the ball from the infield (only three flies). He allowed four strikeouts, four strikeouts, four strikeouts, four strikeouts and seven strikeouts. Houston had two golden chances against Suarez. Two outs in two innings drove the runner into a corner, but Suarez froze Chas McCormick for three strikes. Then, in the 5th inning, with 2 outs, the runners came out by 1 and 2, but Jose Altuve was blocked and was out in 4 areas. Suarez was cool, calm and calm, and excelled when needed. As Schwarber and Hoskins started the game in the fifth inning, Phillies manager Rob Thomson secured the win with second-tier relief pitchers. Connor Brogdon finished the 6th, Kyle Gibson finished the 7th, Nick Nelson finished the 8th and Andrew Bellatti finished the 9th. José Alvarado and Seranthony Domínguez (and Zack Eflin and David Robertson) will rest the night and get a good rest for games 4 and 5. It is a victory in a victory. opening match win. 5. Philadelphia has the upper hand at home. The Fightin’ Phils went on to a perfect 6-0 win at Citizens Bank Park this October and overwhelm their opponents 17-6 — 17-6! — In 6 games. No team had hit more than 15 home runs in six home games in a single postseason before the 2022 Phillies. How about? The Phillies dominated their opponents 42-15 in their six postseason home games. 42 are headliners, but 15 work with an acceptable 2.50 runs per game. That’s great. 6. Next game starts Good news for the Phillies. Game 4 will take place on Wednesday night at Citizen Bank Park. Aaron Nola (11-13, ERA of 3.25) and right-handed Christian Javier (11-9, ERA of 2.94) are the starting pitchers in the first game.
