2022 World Series: Phillies complete historic comeback in Game 1 win

Date:

Game 1 of the 2022 World Series was filled with excitement from start to finish, as the Philadelphia Phillies came back from a 5-0 deficit to beat the Houston Astros 6-5 in extra innings.

The Phillies’ victory was the biggest comeback by a National League team in a World Series game since 1956.

These are the top games of Game 1:

Phillies 6, Astros 5

The new mr. October?

Phillies superstar Bryce Harper is playing in the World Series for the first time in his storied career. The FOX MLB broadcast crew has been looking at what Harper will bring to the table when he takes on the biggest baseball stage.

Verlander acts early

Justin Verlander started Game 1 of the World Series with a strikeout when he caught Phillies slugger Kyle Schwarber watching.

Houston strikes first

The first run of the 2022 World Series went to the Astros. Kyle Tucker took Aaron Nola yard on a solo shot to the right to make it 1-0.

Hit, run and score

Martin Maldonado and the Astros executed the hit-and-run to perfection. When Chas McCormick left for second place, Maldonado hit the ball where the second baseman would have been. Yuli Gurriel scored the single to give Houston a 2-0 lead.

A Peña to get out

Jeremy Peña battled a 1-2 count before taking Nola’s sinker the other way for a leadoff double in the third.

Two for Tucker

Kyle Tucker made a strong and early case to win World Series MVP with his three-run homer in the third. It was Tucker’s second homerun of the evening to give the Astros a 5-0 lead.

Digging out a run

The Phillies scored their first run of the series when Nick Castellanos somehow made contact with Verlander’s slider low and gone.

Alec Bohm brought in two more runs to cut the Astros’ lead to make it 5-3 in the fourth inning.

Draw

JT Realmuto’s double scored both runners on base to tie the game in the fifth after the Phillies trailed 5-0.

Bohm does it all

After his double-run double earlier in the game increased the Astros’ lead, Bohm tied the game with his strong play at third base to end the sixth inning.

Taco Time!

Kyle Schwarber stole second base in the seventh inning, meaning Taco Bell will be giving away free tacos to those who have their app.

In the 10 previous World Series in which Taco Bell led the promotion, the team that stole base first has gone 8-2.

Steal smooth

Jose Altuve’s bloop single brought him on base with two outs in the ninth. He then narrowly stole second base to get into scoring position.

Not on Nick’s watch

Peña looked like he won the game for the Astros. But Castellanos slipped to make the catch and prevent Altuve from scoring.

Start the 10th with a bang!

Realmuto stepped up to the plate in the top of the tenth inning and drove a solo homerun to the deep right to give the Phillies a 6-5 lead.

ball game

After some Astros-players got on base and got into scoring position, David Robertson fell into a 3-0 hole against Aledmys Diaz. However, Robertson bounced back and made sure Diaz eventually grounded out to end the game and give the Phillies a 1-0 series lead.
