That Championship has been marred with controversy due to their sign cheating scandal.

Yordan Álvarez launched a game-winning home run to center field. This home run was costly for the Phillies.

The home run came the Astros a 3-1 lead in the bottom of the sixth inning.

In the same inning, Christian Vázquez singled to left field. This scored Alex Bregman for the 4-1 lead.

The Phillies got on the board in the top half of the sixth inning. Kyle Schwarber hit a 395-foot home run to right field.

Astros pitcher Framber Valdez received the win. He improved to 2-0 in the World Series.

He went six innings. He allowed two hits and one run over the aforementioned six innings.

Phillies pitcher Zach Wheeler received the loss. He lost both World Series starts.

He allowed two runs on three hits in 5 1/3rd innings.

Astros pitcher Ryan Pressly received the save. This was his second save of the series.
