World Series Game 3: Phillies-Astros time, TV channel, starting pitchers after Monday’s rain

The 2022 World Series goes to Philadelphia. The Philadelphia Phillies and Houston Astros split Games 1 and 2 at Minute Maid Park over the weekend, so the World Series is now a best-of-five series as it shifts to Citizens Bank Park for Games 3-5. Game 3 was rained out on Monday night and the series will be picked up again on Tuesday.

Oddly enough, the Phillies are 1-3 in Game 2s and 9-0 in all other games this postseason. They certainly hope that trend continues after they drop Game 2 and even allow the Astros to continue the series. Houston is 8-1 in nine games after the season in October and they led 5-0 in that one loss. They have been ahead in every game so far.

How to watch?

One thing is certain: the Phillies want to avoid another 5-0 deficit in Game 3. They trailed 5-0 early in Game 1, but made a remarkable comeback, winning in the 10th inning. They then trailed 5-0 in Game 2 and took the loss. The Astros are doing a great job jumping to early lead in October — not just against the Phillies, in all their post-season games — and the Phillies need to keep them off the board early to have their best shot at Game 3 to win. You can only play so much from behind and beat a team as good as Houston.


On paper, the pitching advantage is in Houston’s favor. The Philadelphia rotation gets a little thinner behind Aaron Nola and Zack Wheeler. There’s more to life than starting pitch matchups, but sometimes a team has an advantage that’s too big to ignore. I have the Astros in Game 3.

Choose: Astros 5, Phillies 3
