Astros Win Game 4 (5-0) With 1st Combined No-Hitter in World Series History; Series Tied 2-2

It’s not over ’til it’s over! Phillies fans were hoping for another home-run-wrecking performance after the Game 3 blowout, but the Astros delivered just the opposite. Houston blanked Philly (5-0) with the first-ever combined no-hitter in World Series history on the back of Cristian Javier’s epic start. Javier notched nine Ks through six innings and got support with a five-run fifth inning before exiting and letting the bullpen close the deal. While it’s the first combined no-no ever in the Fall Classic, it’s the second no-hitter of any kind (Don Larsen, 1956).


Astros Pitchers (Game 4)

C. Javier: 6 IP, 9 Ks, 0 Hits

B. Abreu: 1 IP, 3 Ks, 0 Hits

R. Montero: 1 IP, 1 K, 0 Hits

R. Pressly: 1 IP, 1 K, 0 Hits


Wednesday’s massive swing game could’ve seen the Phillies take a 3-1 lead with a chance to close it out at home tonight. Instead, we’re all square at 2-2 and the Astros have retaken control.
