A record-breaking performance by Houston’s pitchers helped the Astros win the World Series 2-2 with a 5-0 win over the Philadelphia Phillies.
Houston starting pitcher Cristian Javier and the Astros bullpen combined were the second no-hitter in World Series history and the first since 1956.
It was the perfect response after being demolished 7-0 in game three of the Fall Classic.
Javier set the table for the visitors with nine strikeouts in his six innings before Bryan Abreu, Rafael Montero and Ryan Pressly took it in turns to carry his momentum home.
Philadelphia kept pace with the Astros scoreless in the first four innings until Houston exploded and scored all five runs in the fifth.
Game five is scheduled for Friday night in Philadelphia.
