Astros v Phillies

The 118th edition of the World Series, it is a best-of-seven playoff that will be played between the American League (AL) champion Houston Astros and the National League (NL) champion Philadelphia Phillies. The series is scheduled to be played between October 28 and November 5, if all seven games are necessary. The Astros, holding the better regular season record, have home field advantage and will host Games 1 and 2, and, if necessary, Games 6 and 7

Houston Astros

This is the fifth World Series appearance for the Astros, and the fourth as the American League team. The Astros qualified for the 2022 postseason as the American League (AL) West division winner.
It was their fifth AL West championship in six years and their second straight divisional championship. The Astros entered the postseason as the top seed in the American League.
In the Division Series, they swept the fifth-seeded Seattle Mariners. In the American League Championship Series, they swept the second-seeded New York Yankees to make it to the World Series for the fourth time in the previous six seasons (2017, 2019, 2021) and the second consecutive season.


Philadelphia Phillies


This is the eighth World Series appearance for the Phillies, and first since 2009. The Phillies struggled at the start of the 2022 season. On June 3, and at a record of 22–29 (.431), manager Joe Girardi was dismissed from the team, and Rob Thomson, their bench coach, was named the new interim manager. From there, the Phillies went 65–46 (.586).
They clinched a postseason berth on the third to last day of the season; they were the last postseason team of the 12 to clinch a berth. They qualified for the postseason as the sixth seed wild card entrant with an 87–75 (.537) record.

In the National League Wild Card Series, they swept the National League Central division winner St. Louis Cardinals, who were seeded third in the National League. In the National League Division Series, they defeated the defending World Series champion and National League East division winner Atlanta Braves in four games, the NL's second seed. In the National League Championship Series (NLCS), they defeated the fifth-seeded San Diego Padres in five games to clinch a World Series berth for the first time since 2009, which the Phillies lost in six games to the New York Yankees.

Phillies come from 0-5 down, to win it 6-5 in an extra innings!
Amazing!

The Phillies are $2.20 to win game 2, but are now favourites @ $1.75 to win the trophy.

Astros level the series with a 5-0 win.

2 games a piece, next game in Philadelphia, then it's back to Texas for game 6 and 7 (if required)

AP:

From trash can scandal to top of the heap: Astros win world series

"Baker finally got his first title in his 25th season as a manager, the past three since being hired by the Astros to help the team regain credibility after the sign-stealing scandal that cost manger A.J. Hinch and general manager Jeff Luhnow their jobs, and made Houston the most reviled team in baseball.

Baker, who had been to the World Series twice before as a skipper, is the oldest championship manager."


[Dusty Baker is 73.]

Philadelphia lose the MLB and the MLS on the same day. Rough day for the city.
