Undefeated going into the World Series, will the Philadelphia Phillies be able to slow down the Astros? Or will Jose Altuve and the Astros’ World Series dominance continue?
NATIONAL LEAGUE RECAP: PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES #RingTheBell #RedOctober
The Philadelphia Phillies’ journey to the 2022 World Series has been less dominant and filled with injuries. Losing Bryce Harper at the end of June to a wild pitch from Blake Snell derailed the Phillies, but not enough to keep them out.
