Though Down (5-0), J.T. Realmuto And The Phils Won “The Opener”

October 29, 2022

Despite being down (5-0), the 87 “reg” wins, Philadelphia Phillies (10-2) in this baseball tournament, rode J.T. Realmuto’s tying 2 run double (T5) and solo homer top 10, to (6-5) the Astros (Houston is 0-5 in World Series opening games and have lost 7 of 8 home World Series games since winning 1″3″-1″2″ to take a “3”-“2”, 2017 World Series lead, en route to their lone crown) in the 2022 World Series opening game.

Once again, Houston starter, Justin Verlander (this was a no decision for the (0-6) in World Series play, pitcher) failed, this time, truly, big time!

The Phillies playing on a 4th consecutive Friday, all in different post-season entities, are (4-0) in such games and are now (6-2) in World Series opening games.

As cited in an earlier post, thrice the Phils have won the World Series opener only to lose the series, including the entity held 107 years ago in 1915, when after Grover Cleveland Alexander and the Philly beat Boston in the “opener,” in a game played on a Friday, the Philly team lost the last 4 games of that World Series.
