Game 3 Phillies vs. Astros Prediction

The Astros leaned on their experience and saw veteran players like Bregman and Jose Altuve step up at the plate in Game 2. They’ll have to hope that success can carry over on the road. Lance McCullers Jr. is set to take the mound after allowing only 3 runs over 11.0 innings (2 starts) this postseason.

The Phillies will counter with Noah Syndergaard, who has given up just 1 run over 5.1 innings (3 appearances) during this playoff run. Don’t expect the 30-year-old to go more than a few innings, though, as manager Rob Thomson looks to continue leaning on his bullpen to get important outs.

McCullers has only faced the Phillies once in his career, which was when he gave up 1 run over 6.0 innings in a 3-0 loss back on October 3. These hitters were able to get a feel for him and now get to play with their fans cheering. Philly is also 9-2 straight up in its last 11 home games against Houston.

This is a toss-up game, so I’ll side with the team that is 5-0 at home this postseason.

Final Score Prediction: Phillies 5, Astros 4

Probable Starting Pitchers: World Series Game 3

The Houston Astros will look to Lance McCullers Jr. (4-2, 2.27 ERA) in Game 3.

The Philadelphia Phillies will hand the ball to Noah Syndergaard (10-10, 3.94 ERA).
