Bryce Harper hit the first home run of the night against the Astros.

A barrage of homers gives the Phillies a landslide victory over the Astros in Game 3 of the World Series

The Phillies overwhelmed the Astros and took the lead in the World Series with a home run fest from home

Citizens Bank Park hosted another World Series matchup in which the Phillies blew out the Astros 7-0 and took a two-game-loss lead. Philadelphia’s battery was fired up at all times and squeezed the game at all times, unleashing the power of their sluggers.

In total there were five homers by the Philadelphia Phillies, who made all their annotations by way of full-return hits.

Ranger Suárez was the starter for the Philadelphia Phillies, while for the Astros, Lance McCullers Jr, was the starter and the victim of a game where the bats were not going to stop ringing. Bryce Harper hit the first home run of the night at Citizens Bank Park and scored the first two streaks of the night with a home run that flew 401 down the right field.

But Bryce Harper’s home run was just the beginning of a night that would be an ordeal for the Houston mound. Alec Bohm and Brandon Marsh added a couple more solo homers in the second inning.

The Houston bats were still handcuffed, only in the fifth inning was there a real option but the Venezuelan José Altuve did not know how to take advantage of the opportunity and the runners were left on the pads and another zero inning.

Before the zero of the Astros, the Phillies were going to respond quickly in the fifth episode, the home run party was not over, Kyle Schwarber brought two more with a direct home run to the center and 443 feet. Rhys Hoskins did the same and the advantage was more than solid for the homeowners.

Lance McCullers Jr. announced his pitches and the result was fatal, he also became the first pitcher in MLB history to allow five home runs in a single World Series game, a record that no one would have wanted to achieve.

And so Rob Thomson chose his closer Andrew Bellatti to take the mound in the ninth inning for the final three outs of the game. He first put out Gurriel, then Trey Mancini who replaced David Hensley as a pinch hitter.

Bellatti finally struck out Chas McCormick and sealed the Phillies’ beating of the Astros that gives them the lead in the series.
