The Philadelphia Phillies and Houston Astros face off in Game 6 of the World Series on Saturday at MinuteMaid Park. The Astors currently have a 3-2 series lead, and can win the World Series with a victory in this game.

The Phillies had a 2-1 series lead heading into Game 4, but the Astros won back-to-back games. The Astros scored a run in the 1st, 4th, and 8th inning in Game 5 to secure the 3-2 win. Jose Altuve has struggled all postseason, but he finally showed some flashes in Game 5. Altuve finished with two hits and two runs and one walk. Jeremy Pena had a big game also finishing with three hits, two RBIs, and one run. Kyle Schwarber has had a huge postseason for the Phillies and hit another home run in Game 5. Bryce Harper also finished with two walks and one hit. Yuli Gurriel was injured during Game 5, and it’s unclear if he will be able to play for the Astros here. 

On the mound for the Phillies is Zack Wheeler, who sits with a 1-2 record and an ERA of 2.67. In his last start against Houston, he went five innings, giving up six hits and five runs. 

On the mound for the Astros will be Framber Valdez, who sits with a 2-0 record and an ERA of 1.42. In his last start against the Phillies, he went 6.1 innings, giving up four hits and one run. 

The Phillies are 7-0 in their last seven games following an off day. The Phillies are 0-4 in their last four during Game 6 of a series. The Astros are 1-7 in their last eight during Game 6 of a series. The Under is 4-0-1 in Valdez's last 5 starts after allowing 2 runs or fewer in their previous game. The under is 3-0-1 in the Astros last four games. 

This is going to be the last game of the World Series. Valdez has been lights out all playoffs, and he has already proven that the Phillies have issues hitting off him. Wheeler in his last start gave up five runs, and the Astros bats are going to get to him here. This is going to be an easy victory for Houston. Back the Astros -1.5.
