Justin Verlander started Game 1 for the Astros while Aaron Nola started for the Phillies. This was the first World Series since 1915 to start on a Friday.

Kyle Tucker hit a solo home run off of Nola in the bottom of the second inning. Nola then gave up two singles to Yuli Gurriel and Chas McCormick. With runners at the corners, Martín Maldonado hit a run batted in single scoring Gurriel.

José Altuve grounded into a double play to end the inning. Jeremy Peña doubled to start the third for Houston and Alex Bregman drew a walk.

Kyle Tucker is up next for the Astros, facing Aaron Nola. Nola’s first pitch is a ball and his second is taken for a strike. On pitch three, Kyle Tucker hits it a long way and he breaks the scoreless tie with a 359 foot home run.

Martín Maldonado is up next and should just be looking to avoid a strikeout here. Nola’s first pitch is another called strike.

And here’s Tucker again. He has a chance to be a hometown legend this at-bat. He hits Nola’s first pitch foul and then takes a strike. 0-2. Nola tries to get him to chance with a low ball but there’s no dice. 1-2. He wouldn’t mind a strikeout right here, one imagines.

The next pitch is a ball in the dark. Didn’t get it there. 2-2. Tucker breaks his bat on the next pitch, the ball goes foul and out of play. Still 2-2. The next pitch is outside. 3-2. A much tougher at bat than this seemed it would be after Tucker fell 0-2. The payoff pitch.. Tucker hits yet another home run! OH MY GOODNESS!

And Bohm hits a double, it’s all of a sudden a two-run game! That’s an answer for you!

Luis Garcia is in pitching for the Astros, who have to feel like they should be out of this game. The Phillies have their first lead of the game and it comes at a perfect time!

Well, so much for there being no surprises this World Series as this writer predicted just (checks watch) yesterday. The Philadelphia Phillies came in knowing they had to win at least one of these first two games away at Minute Maid Park to have the chance at pulling off an upset against the Houston Astros.

The Phillies became the first team in two decades to overcome a five-run deficit in a World Series game, and in doing so, they served notice that the result here is no foregone conclusion.
