South Side Sox Bird App Recap: World Series Game 1, Phillies 6, Astros 5 (10 innings)

Apparently the World Series is starting (who would know, when the LCS ended almost a week ago). If you support the Astros, you’re going to get a lot of Phillies-biased tweets here, and rightly so. If you’re on the Phillies bandwagon, welcome, there’s plenty to see here.

Oh, and uh, forget that thing that happened with Twitter and hating the Astros.

The Astros made an interesting choice for music to release.

Root for the Phillies, if not for the Astros sucking, but for them not being able to go 11-0 in the playoffs

Oh yeah, you probably want to know who’s starting, right?

Mixed feelings about missing Joe Buck:

Hey, not cool, but also, fair.

White Sox? Never heard of them.

Jeremy Peña: excellent position, scratched.

Bryce Harper: Hot, also scratched.

Verlander has some evil magic going on early.

Kyle Tucker puts the Astros up, 1-0, with a first home run in the second.

Ask the real questions.

It’s 2-0 now.

Altuve double play to end the round.

A bad call at first base is called off and the Phillies get a crucial out at third.

Kyle Tucker hits another home run in the third, and it’s 5-0, Houston.

A little blooper from Nick Castellanos puts the Phils on the board, and a brace from Alec Bohm sets up two more, and it’s 5-3 Astros in fourth.

JT Realmuto hits a brace in the fifth to tie the match, 5-5.

Classic World Series Justin Verlander

Tied between five and five, and this game is now a must.

Alec Bohm makes a fantastic play to get Zach Eflin out of a jam in the sixth.

Kyle Schwarber steals second, our hearts and tacos in seventh to get into scoring position.

Realmuto and Harper walk, and Castellanos heads for the plate with the bases loaded and two outs.

And Castellanos strikes to finish the seventh.

Nothing to do in the eighth, so we head for the ninth still tied at five.

Altuve bloops a two-out single and attempts to steal the second – it’s called safe and we’ll revisit, but the call holds.

The greatest defenseman in baseball history, Nick Castellanos, pulls off a superb sliding catch to end the inning and send the game to 10th.

JT Realmuto throws a ball to the right field wall to lead the 10th, and the Phillies have their first lead of the game, 6-5.

Bregman bare-handed a ball that beat Bohm to base one.

We go to the bottom of the 10th with an old friend alert, as David Robertson takes the hill for the Phils.

Bregman hits a left double, and there’s now a runner in position to score with one out.

Yuli Gurriel walks, and a wild pitch sends the runners to second and third with two outs — then Aledmys Díaz gets in the way of a pitch.

Robertson completes the save and the Phillies win Game 1, 6-5.

Despite, you know, cheating, the Astros suck at home in the World Series.
