The Houston Astros will play the Philadelphia Phillies in Game 5 of the World Series on Thursday night at Citizens Bank Park. The series is tied 2-2.

The Houston Astros were able to tie the series up at two games apiece after they won 5-0 on Wednesday night. The Astros threw a combined a no-hitter and won this game easily. Houston also won Game 2 by a score of 5-2, but lost Games 1 and 3. The Houston pitching staff has a 2.42 ERA, a 0.95 WHIP, and a .176 opponent batting average this postseason. The Astros offense has scored 46 runs with a .230 batting average and a .300 on base percentage. Alex Bregman has led the Astros with a .283 batting average, three home runs and 11 RBI’s this postseason. The projected starting pitcher for Houston is Justin Verlander, who is 1-0 with a 7.20 ERA and a 1.53 WHIP over 15 innings pitched in the playoffs.

The Philadelphia Phillies will need to bounce back after a terrible hitting night on Wednesday. Philadelphia won Game 1 by a score of 6-5 and Game 2 by a score of 7-0 in this series. The Philadelphia pitching staff has a 3.18 ERA, a 1.03 WHIP, and a .203 opponent batting average. The Phillies' offense has scored 72 runs with a .219 batting average and a .292 on base percentage this postseason. Bryce Harper has led the Phillies with a .368 batting average, six home runs, and 13 RBI’s in the playoffs. The projected starting pitcher for Philadelphia is Noah Syndergaard, who is 0-0 with a 1.69 ERA and a 0.75 WHIP over 5.1 innings pitched this season.

Houston is 9-2 in their last 11 playoff games and 4-8 in their last 12 World Series games. The under is 7-2-1 in Houston’s last 10 games. Philadelphia is 5-2 in their last 7 games and 10-4 in their last 14 Thursday games. The over is 5-2-1 in Philadelphia’s last 7 World Series games. Houston is 3-10 in these two team's last 13 head-to-head meetings in Philadelphia.

Philadelphia really needs to win this game to avoid going down 3-2 and heading back to Houston to finish the series. Philadelphia is starting Noah Syndergaard, who hasn’t pitched very much this postseason. Houston is starting Justin Verlander, who has been rouged up this postseason, which includes allowing five runs to the Phillies in Game 1. I like the Phillies in this game, but would not be surprised if it turned into a shootout.
