Yesterday, I was happy for the fans of the Phillies because their excitement reminded me of how excited I was when my team, the Rangers, made it to the World Series. But, as someone who is cheering for the Astros in the World Series, I was not happy that they got blown out in Game 3. They lost 0-7 and, last night, it looked like the Phillies might be unstoppable.
Tonight, though, the Astros proved that this World Series is nowhere close to being over. Even with Jill Biden sitting in the stands and trying to turn the country against them, the Astros shut out the Phillies. The Astros not only won, 5-0, but tonight’s game was also the first combined no-hitter (and the third no-hitter overall) in baseball post-season history. Tonight, the Astros looked as strong as the Phillies looked last night.
You can hear the Philadelphia crowd booing in the video but I don’t care. The Astros made history and this World Series isn’t ending anytime soon. The World Series is now tied 2-2. Game 5 is tomorrow night.
