Date: Wednesday, November 2, 2022
Time: 8:03 p.m. ET
Venue: Citizens Bank Park — Philadelphia, PA
The 2022 World Series is underway and has brought nothing but excitement for baseball fans so far. The first two games were split in Houston, but the Phillies triumphed in a 7-0 shutout victory in front of their home crowd in Game 3. Astros' starter Lance McCullers Jr. gave up 5 home runs in the loss.
The win kept the Phillies undefeated at home during this postseason (6-0) and now they have a chance to take a substantial 3-1 lead in the series. Can Philadelphia land another big blow to Houston or will the Astros stay calm and collected by stealing back home-field advantage on Wednesday?

Astros vs Phillies Prediction & Pick
There's simply no understating how well the Phillies have played at Citizens Bank Park during this playoff run. They are averaging 7.0 runs per game and have smashed 17 home runs across the six contests. Philadelphia has also only allowed 2.5 runs per game with their own fans cheering them on.
The Astros will look to quiet the noise with Cristian Javier on the mound. Javier has only pitched twice during the postseason, giving up 1 earned run in 6.2 innings. The command of his four-seam fastball will make the biggest difference against a lineup he is facing for the first time in his career.
The Phillies will counter with veteran Aaron Nola. Nola has been up-and-down during the playoffs and most recently got rocked in Game 2 of this series. He allowed 5 earned runs on 6 hits and 2 walks in only 5.0 innings. Keep in mind he pitched 6.0 shutout innings in his lone playoff home start, though.
I'm going to keep backing the Phillies at home until they provide a reason for me not to.
Final Score Prediction: Astros: 3 | Phillies: 6
Astros vs Phillies Probable Starting Pitchers
The Houston Astros will look to Cristian Javier (11-9, 2.54 ERA) in Game 4 and the Philadelphia Phillies hand the ball to Aaron Nola (11-13, 3.25 ERA).
