I’m loathe to put up a game thread, because that would be Alex Hall’s job if Vox didn’t suck elephant te$ticle$, but it’s the World Series so whatevs.

The underdog Phillies are visiting the AL-best Astros, with the caveat that Houston is starting a pitcher who is 0-6 in his World Series career. His name is Justin Verlander and he is opposed by Aaron Nola.

Kyle Schwarber, LF
