Astros vs. Phillies live score, updates, highlights from Game 3 of 2022 World Series

By | November 1, 2022

In Game 1 of the World Series, the Astros jumped out to a 5-0 lead, only to watch it slip away and lose in extra innings 6-5. In Game 2, the Astros again put up an early 5-0 advantage, but this time held off the Phillies to win the second game 5-2 and even the series at a game each.

Now, the World Series heads to Philadelphia for a three-game stretch that could see the 2022 World Series come to an end if either team is able to sweep the other in the City of Brotherly Love. But not before the two teams had an extra day of rest. Due to rain in Philadelphia, Game 3 was delayed from Monday to Tuesday, pushing the rest of the World Series schedule back a day.

When the two teams return to the field, Lance McCullers will start for the Astros and Ranger Suarez will take the hill for the Phillies, as the two hurlers hope to put their team up two games to one in the World Series.

Neither pitcher has appeared in the World Series in some time. McCullers last pitched in the World Series back in 2017, Houston’s first of four trips, when he started the third and seventh games of the Fall Classic against the Dodgers. Houston won both games.

Astros vs. Phillies live updates, highlights from 2022 World Series

(All times Eastern)

8:41 p.m. Phillies scoring play: Citizens Bank Park erupts as Bohm rips the first pitch he sees over the left field wall for his first postseason home run. That liner was ripped at 109.2 mph off the bat and traveled 373 feet. It was also the 1,000th home run in World Series history. Phillies extend their lead to 3-0.

8:37 p.m. End Top Second: Home plate umpire Dan Iassogna has had a bit of an expanded zone on the inside all night, and McCormick is the victim of a called strike three just inside off the plate to end the inning.

8:34 p.m.: The Astros are getting production out of their DH spot at last. David Hensley singles up the middle, driving a 3-2 changeup through the infield and moving Gurriel up to third. Runners on the corners with two away for Chas McCormick.

8:31 p.m.: The Astros have their first baserunner of the night as Yuli Gurriel bounces a slow roller to third, and Alec Bohm just puts it in his pocket.

8:30 p.m.: Kyle Tucker grounds out to second for the second out of the frame.

8:28 p.m.: Suarez keeps rolling as Alex Bregman bounces out to third on the third pitch he sees. Through four batters, Suarez has thrown 12 pitches.

8:27 p.m.: That home run from Harper moves him up an impressive list. He now has the second-most go-ahead home runs in a single postseason, just one shy of Cardinals legend Albert Pujols.

8:24 p.m. End of First: Nick Castellanos grounds out to third, but the damage is done. The Phillies have a lead and the crowd is about as amped up as it gets.

8:22 p.m. Phillies scoring play: It’s a storybook start for Harper. The first pitch he sees in Philadelphia in the World Series is launched 402 feet to right-center for a no-doubt, two-run blast. Phillies take a 2-0 lead.

8:21 p.m.: Popup by Realmuto to Martin Maldonado in fair territory sends Bryce Harper to the plate with two away and a runner on first.

8:09 p.m. End Top First: The Astros go down in order as Yordan Alvarez comes up empty swinging at a curveball down and away.

8:06 p.m.: Another first pitch swing, this one from Jeremy Pena, and he hits a dribbler to short that is fielded and thrown on to first for the second out.

8:05 p.m.: That will fire up the Philly crowd. First pitch of the game to Jose Altuve is lined to right, but Nick Castellanos makes a sliding grab for the first out. According to Baseball Savant, that ball had an expected batting average of .560.

8:03 p.m.: Ranger Suarez warming up getting ready to throw out the first pitch in Game 3 of the World Series.
