Houston might be advised to tack on a couple of runs here. Ryan Pressley threw a lot of pitches in last night's combined no-no, so a two or three-run cushion would help if he has to come in to close tonight.

That was big. Gurriel on at 3rd with 0 outs and couldn’t score. Also got hurt on the run down.

This has been the best game of the series so far.

Houston has a golden opportunity here again in the eighth.

I'd love to see Trey come through right here.

 

. . .And he didn't.

Phillies have the tying runs on with one out in the eighth.

 

Phillies were 0-for their last 20 with RISP. Now they're 1-for-21.

Ryan Pressley in for the Astros. As I said, he labored a bit last night and now he's being asked to do something he hasn't done all year: get five outs.

Nice play by Mancini ends the Phillies threat in the 8th.

Nice play at first by Trey on that smoker by Schwarber. Not sure if he caught the ball or the ball caught him.

If the Phillies can keep the Astros off the board here, they'll have 2-3-4 hitters up in the ninth down by just a run.

Helluva game. Great play by Chas McCormick on that drive from J.T. Realmuto. It wouldn't have gone out, but if he doesn't come up with it, it's at least a double and possibly a triple.

 

Back to Houston for Game 6 on Saturday.

Eight teams in a best-of-seven World Series have rallied to win Games 6 and 7 on the road. 

 

I can think of four off the top of my head: the 1958 Yankees, the 1968 Tigers, the 1979 Pirates, and the 2016 Cubs. All of those rallied from 3 games to 1 deficits. Now I'm curious enough to look up the other four.

Astros' 1B Yuri Gurriel will miss the rest of the Series due to a knee injury suffered in Game 5.

 

Gurriel wasn't great during the season, but he was a solid postseason contributor. Since the Astros opted not to add another infielder to the roster, I guess that means Trey will get the nod at first base.

After Schwarber gets the Phillies on the board in game 6 with a 6th inning solo home run, Yordan Alvarez crushes a 3-run blast to give the Astro’s the lead in the bottom of the 6th. Houston now 9 outs away from a World Series title.
