Follow live: Phillies answer with a solo blast from Schwarber

Game 5 of the 2022 World Series goes down Thursday night with the Philadelphia Phillies and Houston Astros battling for a 3-2 series lead.

Houston’s bullpen made history in Game 4, throwing the first combined no-hitter in MLB postseason history, according to ESPN Stats and Information. Astros pitcher Cristian Javier dominated the Phillies’ lineup, throwing nine strikeouts in six innings. A relief effort from Bryan Abreu, Rafael Montero and Ryan Pressly finished things off. It was a significant contrast with Game 3, where the Phillies mashed five home runs off the Astros.

Thursday’s contest is the final one in Philly before the series shifts back to Houston. Will the Astros head back home with the 3-2 advantage or will the Phillies rebound from a disappointing Game 4?

Here are the best moments and takeaways from Game 5:
