Houston is heating up

Phillies choke Aaron Nola held the Astros scoreless for four innings, but in the fifth inning the dam broke.

Houston scored five points in the fifth, taking a 5-0 lead with the Astros starter Christian Xavier carrying a no-hitter through four innings.

The offensive assault began with a Chas McCormick single by Nola followed by two more singles by Astros second baseman Jose Altuve and shortstop Jeremy Pena. With bases loaded and no outs, Phillies manager Rob Thomson pulled Nola out of the game, calling in a left-handed fireball reliever. Jose Alvarado.

But Alvarado immediately got off to a rocky start, hitting Yordan Alvarez with a pitch, scoring McCormick to give Houston their first run of the night. Things only got worse from there for Philadelphia as the Astros’ third baseman Alex Bregman hit a double to right field, scoring Altuve and Peña and extending Houston’s lead to 3-0.

With both legacy runners scoring, Nola’s last pitching line was four innings pitched with three earned runs on seven hits, no walks and four strikeouts.

But the damage didn’t stop with Bregman. Astros outfielder Kyle Tucker hit a sacrificial fly to center field, tagging Alvarez and moving Bregman to third base and Yuli Gurriel kept the offensive turnover going, sending a single into left field to score Bregman and extend Houston’s lead to 5-0. As Alvarado struck Christian Vazquez and Aldemy Diaz at the end of the round, the damage was done. -Joon Lee
