Phillies vs Astros Game 6 Info
2022 MLB Playoffs — World Series Game 6 (HOU Leads 3-2)
Philadelphia Phillies (87-75, 40-41 Away) vs. Houston Astros (106-56, 55-26 Home)
Date: Saturday, November 5, 2022
Time: 8:03 p.m. ET
Venue: Minute Maid Park — Houston, TX
The 2022 World Series has been anything but a cakewalk for the favored Houston Astros. They found themselves in a 2-1 series hole before winning back-to-back road games against the Philadelphia Phillies. Pitcher Justin Verlander captured his first win in the fall classic during a 3-2 Game 5 victory.
Minute Maid Park will surely be rocking on Saturday night, but Houston has only earned the win in four of its last 10 World Series home games. Can the Phillies force a winner-take-all with a bounce back performance in Game 6? Or will the Astros win the title for the second time in franchise history?

Phillies vs Astros Prediction & Pick
Astros fans have to be feeling good about their team's position as Framber Valdez is set to take the mound for Game 6. The 28-year-old picked apart the Phillies in Game 2, striking out 9 batters and giving up 1 run in 6.1 innings. Valdez has now allowed only 3 earned runs across 19.0 playoff innings.
The Phillies will counter with their ace, Zack Wheeler. Wheeler looked fatigued in Game 2 and allowed 5 runs (4 earned) on 6 hits and 3 walks across 5.0 innings. His velocity was down, so manager Rob Thomson decided to give him an extra day of rest this week. It'll be interesting to see if that helps.
All of the momentum is on the side of the Astros right now. After all, first baseman Trey Mancini and outfielder Chas McCormick each made outstanding defensive plays on Thursday night to seal the win. Philadelphia is also ice cold at the plate, scoring only 2 runs across the last 21.0 innings of play.
It's hard to go against Valdez. Another big performance could earn him World Series MVP honors.
Final Score Prediction: Phillies: 3 | Astros: 4
