J.T. Realmuto’s heroic homer in 10th inning lifts Phillies over Astros in Game 1 of World Series
The chaos of one month moves forward to the World Series Game.
Earlier, the fans were wondering what the future holds for Philadelphia Phillies, the team has earlier not been qualified for the playoffs. Time has changed, and things have moved towards a better phase. The team had earlier not qualified for the playoffs. One month of chaos continued through to a World Series Game 1 stunner.
“The way we fought back in that game after being down 5-0,” said Realmuto, “that’s a Phillies win right there.”
The Phillies played a great inning which led the fans to wonder about their possibility in the upcoming match. The 10th inning was played and the team survived with David Robertson closed out.
“We know [Houston] is a good baseball team. There are no if, and, or buts about it. They won that many games in a row and they’ve been going good in the postseason,” Phillies outfielder Kyle Schwarber said. “We just have to be able to do our thing, play our brand of baseball, and we’re going to see what happens.”
“I’ve watched enough sports in my life to know that sometimes you need a little help from, whatever sport you’re playing, the baseball gods, right?” Hoskins said. “If it’s a weird hit, a weird bounce, whatever it may be — sometimes you need that. We felt like throughout the year sometimes, those things didn’t go our way. But we’ll take them going our way now.”
Thomson has experienced great appreciation for his part. Baker said, “That was the deciding run, but we had the winning runs on base to end the game. We had a pretty good lead early,” he noted. “It’s easy to say if Stanek had given it up, how come we used Stanek? It didn’t work.”
“Any time we get down early in the game, when we have outs left, we feel pretty confident in ourselves,” Realmuto said. “You never want to get down early. It’s not a fun way to play baseball.”
