Astros throw no-hitter in Philadelphia

A night after being blanked by the hard-hitting Philadelphia Phillies, the Houston Astros returned the favor in Game 4 by throwing only the second no-hitter in World Series history. Cristian Javier got Houston’s staff started with six clean innings, including nine strikeouts, and the bullpen took over from there with closer Ryan Pressly hammering in the final nails. The Astros will look to head home with a commanding 3-2 lead Thursday night. First pitch is set for 7:03 p.m. at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia. Chron’s Josh Criswell and Michael Shapiro will provide live updates throughout the World Series between the Astros and Phillies.

The Houston Astros made history in Game 4 of the World Series on Wednesday night. 

Houston’s pitching staff shut down Philadelphia across nine no-hit innings, marking just the second no-hitter in World Series history. Former Yankees pitcher Don Larsen holds the only solo no-hitter in the Fall Classic after nine no-hit frames in the 1956 Fall Classic.
