The Houston Astros threw a combined no-hitter for just the second no-hitter in World Series history. Wow. The Fall Classic is now tied at two games a piece.

First of all, holy shit, Cristian Javier. The guy takes the mound in a must win World Series game, and was absolutely dominant against one of the hottest lineups in baseball this season.

Javier’s final line was 6 IP, 0 H, 2 BB, 9 SO, and it was one of the most beautiful pitching performances the World Series has ever seen. The Astros got rocked Tuesday night, and needed a huge confidence booster. Wednesday night looks like it gave them all the confidence in the world.

On the other side of the ball, the hitting looked like it was going to be a problem again through four innings. Aaron Nola looked like he had fixed his issues he portrayed in game one.

Chas McCormick led off the fifth inning with a single. Next, Jose Altuve followed it up with a single as well. Nobody out, and the ALCS MVP, Jeremy Peña decided to follow the leader and get a knock of his own.

Yordan Alvarez came up to bat but only got to see one pitch hit him right in the back side. What happened next was what broke the dams wide open.

Alex Bregman comes in clutch, as per usual, and the Astros had the lead they were looking for all night. The Astros ended the inning with a five run lead, and it stayed like that for the rest of the night.

The pitching was immaculate all night long. With Javier, Bryan Abreu, Rafael Montero, and Ryan Pressly shutting the Philadelphia Phillies down all night. They accomplished something that’s only been done in the World Series one other time.

It was a special night, but the job isn’t done just yet. The Astros will lace them up again Thursday night before heading back to Houston for at least game six.
