On Tuesday night, there was a party in South Philadelphia. The Phillies won Game 3 against the Astros 7-0 at Citizens Bank Park, extending their series lead to 2-1.
Bryce Harper greeted the Astros at his house with a 2-run home run in the first inning. It wasn’t long before he was joined on the field by Alec Bohm, Brandon Marsh, Kyle Schwarber, and Rhys Hoskins.
In Game 3, the Phillies hit five home runs, matching a World Series record. In addition to strong hitting, the Phillies’ pitching staff was outstanding.
In five innings of work, Ranger Suarez allowed three runs on three hits while striking out four. The relief staff came in and preserved the no-hitter.
After Beating The Astros, The Philadelphia Phillies Now Hold A 2-1 Series Lead
PARIS — They bundled up against the cold in red hoodies and beanie hats to match their red pinstriped jerseys and caps. Until their shoulders gave out, they waved red towels and signs with red lettering.
They yelled until they were hoarse and their vocal cords were red on Tuesday for a total of 3 hours and 8 minutes. Even though there wasn’t a team of ENT specialists on hand to check the turnstiles as 45,712 fans left Citizens Bank Park following the Phillies’ 7-0 victory over the Houston Astros in Game 3 of the World Series, you can believe us when we say that there will be a lot of whispering in the Delaware Valley on Wednesday morning.
This city, these residents, and this stadium had not hosted the World Series in 4,748 days, or 13 years and 12 days to the day. The return of the Fall Classic was met with a boisterous crowd fueled by domestic beer and the cumulative effect of more than a decade of suffering through disappointing baseball.
The crowd got a great show from the Phillies, as the team responded with a comprehensive thrashing, giving them a 2-1 lead over Houston. With 106 victories under their belt, the Astros are not the type of team to fold under pressure. To force a Game 5 at Minute Maid Park, the team needs to win one of the next two games.
The Phillies won the opening game of a three-game series against the Astros with five home runs off of starter Lance McCullers Jr. The beating was intense and continuous.
During the first two innings, Bryce Harper, Alec Bohm, and Brandon Marshall hit home runs. In the fifth inning, Kyle Schwarber blasted a monster two-run homer. After that, Rhys Hoskins took a shot all by himself. Repeatedly, but only just audibly above the roar of the crowd, the electronic Liberty Bell chimed out.
In five scoreless innings, Philadelphia’s Ranger Suárez allowed just three hits. The dingers overpowered his orderly stroll. The barrage of fire started a chain reaction of more in-depth inquiries into the Astros’ methodology. After all that time, why didn’t Dusty Baker just get rid of McCullers? McCullers was reluctant to use his fastball because…? What about the tipping situation, though?
Spectators far and wide laughed at the irony of the Astros, a team who once, ahem, knew what was coming, losing because a pitcher unintentionally revealed his intentions. There’s no denying that the Phillies tipped the scales in their favor with their onslaught against McCullers and the solid support they received from Suárez.
The Monday match was canceled due to rain. In fact, it boosted Tuesday’s enthusiasm. As each member of the Astros was introduced, there were waves of lusty jeering. After the sign-stealing scandal, this sort of welcome became standard practice. Rather than merely picking on Jose Altuve, Alex Bregman, and Yuli Gurriel,
the Philadelphia crowd went all out. An offensive name was thrown at Kyle Tucker. The first thing McCullers heard as he walked out to the mound before the first pitch was a reprimand. A string of Astros relievers also contributed. Similarly, pretty much every other player in blue and orange did as well.
It took Suárez nine pitches to get through the first inning. Yordan Alvarez, a hitter for the Houston Astros, caught seven of them. The first pitch of the game was a line drive by Altuve to right field. In order to get it, Nick Castellanos slid across the grass. The baseball stadium buzzed and never really quieted down.
The next time up, Jeremy Pea grounded out after chopping the ball. To get the last out, Alvarez put some pressure on Suárez before striking out on a curveball at 2-2.
Game 3: Phillies 7, Astros 0
At Citizens Bank Park, the Philadelphia Phillies defeated the Houston Astros 7-0 in Game 3 of the World Series to take a 2-1 series lead. The Phillies hit a record-tying five home runs in the game, which they shared with the Chicago Cubs in Game 2.
For the first World Series game in Philadelphia in 13 years, the home crowd was riled up by Bryce Harper’s two-out, two-run homer in the first inning.
Lance McCullers Jr. of the Astros became the first pitcher in World Series history to allow five home runs, as Alec Bohm and Brandon Marsh hit solo shots in the second inning, and Kyle Schwarber and Rhys Hoskins hit back-to-back homers in the fifth.
In five innings, Ranger Suárez of the Philadelphia Phillies allowed three hits, walked one, and struck out four. Meanwhile, eight of the Astros’ batters were left on base. On Wednesday, left-handed Aaron Nola of the Phillies will take on right-handed Cristian Javier of the Astros in Game 4.
In The Eighth Inning, The Astros Leave Two Runners On Base
In the eighth inning, Phillies right-hander Nick Nelson, making his postseason debut in 2022, escaped trouble by avoiding a hit and a walk. After getting out of a jam with runners on first and second and no outs, Nelson induced Kyle Tucker to fly out to the warning track in left.
This evening, the first five hitters for the Astros (Jose Altuve, Jeremy Pea, Yordan Alvarez, Alex Bregman, and Tucker) are a combined 1 for 18.
All seven Phillies runs came off homers in a 7-0 victory. It was the first of at least one deep ball for Harper, Alec Bohm, Brandon Marsh, Kyle Schwarber, and Rhys Hoskins. After being sidelined on Monday due to rain, Phillies starter Ranger Suarez returned for Game 3 and threw five scoreless innings.
