Houston held on this time with an early 5-0 lead as the Phillies had no answer for Framber Valdez, who pitched 6 1/3 innings and gave up a run on four hits and now they have to face Lance McCullers, Jr. and he has pitched twice this postseason and allowed three earned runs in 11 innings and the Astros won both his starts. Philadelphia hitters are batting just .214 with one home run in 56 at-bats against McCullers, Jr., who didn't return to action until August and posted a 2.27 ERA in eight games in the regular season, including once against the Phillies when he allowed one run on six hits in six innings. Noah Syndergaard has only pitched 5 1/3 innings this postseason and he was 10-10 with a 3.94 ERA this year. Houston's bullpen has a 0.89 ERA and 0.81 WHIP so far in the playoffs and the Astros are 79-29 following a day off. They have also won five of their past seven World Series road games.
