The Houston Astros now know the series will return to Houston, Texas for at least one more game. The World Series is now a best of three with the Astros having home-field advantage. 

The Astros shut out the Philadelphia Phillies on Wednesday night. They won 5-0 in a no-hitter at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

The series is now tied 2-2. The no-hit loss was the Phillies’ first loss at home this entire postseason, as they were 6-0 coming into the game.

This was the second no-hitter in World Series history. It is also the first combined no-hitter in World Series history. 

The last no-hitter before Wednesday night came in Game 5 of the 1956 World Series when New York Yankees pitcher Don Larsen pitched a perfect game in a 2-0 win over the Brooklyn Dodgers at Yankee Stadium. 

The Astros have the last two no-hitters. In June, Astros pitcher Cristian Javier went seven innings in a combined no-hitter against the New York Yankees on June 25th, 2022. 

Houston broke through in the fifth inning. All five of their runs were scored in this inning. 

Astros slugger Yordan Álvarez began the scoring when he was hit by a pitch that scored Pennsylvania native Chas McCormick. Alex Bregman made it 3-0 shortly after that, as he doubled to right field.

On the play, José Altuve and rookie Jeremy Peña scored. 

Still in the inning, Kyle Tucker — who hit two home runs against the Phillies in Game 1 — but struggled with no hits in the next two games, hit a sacrifice fly to center field that scored Álvarez. 

38-year-old Yuli Gurriel knocked in the final run of the game. He singled to left center that scored Bregman. 

Javier — who had not pitched since October 22nd against the New York Yankees — went six shutout innings. 

Bryan Abreu, Rafael Montero, and Ryan Pressly came in to go the final three innings for the historic no-hitter. 

Phillies pitcher Aaron Nola received the loss after allowing three runs over seven hits in four innings. 

Phillies relief pitcher Jose Alvarado gave up the two other runs.
