The Houston Astros fought back well after a miserable 7-0 defeat. The Astros finally broke their curse and won their last game with a 5-0 final score. There were no home runs and the Astros managed to score all five runs in the fifth inning. The Astros are looking for a victory here as they are all set to turn in their Ace Justin Verlander to the mound as their starter. Verlander has a terrible ERA in the postseason and he is holding a 1-0 record. The veteran was rocked in the World Series opener and failed to win for his team.
Players to watch: Jose Altuve 2B (GP 10, AB 45, R 4, H 7, 2B 2, 3B 0, HR 0, RBI 0, TB 9, BB 3, SO 12, SB 1, AVG 0.156, OBP 0.208, SLG 0.2, OPS 0.408, WAR 0), Jeremy Pena SS (GP 10, AB 45, R 9, H 13, 2B 5, 3B 0, HR 3, RBI 6, TB 27, BB 2, SO 11, SB 0, AVG 0.289, OBP 0.319, SLG 0.6, OPS 0.919, WAR 0).
The Philadelphia Phillies must rebound from their terrible defeat at home. The Phillies were unable to do much from the plate as they failed to connect. Philadelphia will still have the upper hand at home in this game. The Phillies will hand over the ball to Noah Syndergaard in this game. Syndergaard is holding a 0-0 postseason record with an ERA of 1.69. The Phillies will need to depend on their batting squad to make it past the Astros. This is not going to be an easy call for the Phillies, but with a little help, they should be able to win.
