Why you should support Phyllis

Philadelphia was the last team to make the playoffs this year, but has been riding a wave of momentum ever since. The Phillies have lost just two games all postseason and enter Game 2 of the World Series on a four-game winning streak. They have extra steam after erasing a 5-0 deficit Friday night, shutting down Houston ace Justin Verlander for five runs between the fourth and fifth innings. Designated hitter Bryce Harper already has 20 hits and five home runs this postseason, driving in 11 runs.

The Phillies have their ace on the mound in this game, as Wheeler went 12-7 with a 2.82 ERA during the regular season. He was even better in the playoffs, going 1-1 with a 1.78 ERA. Valdez struggled in last year’s World Series, posting a 19.29 ERA while allowing four home runs in just 4.2 innings. Philadelphia is rated as the underdog Saturday night, but has the better pitcher and more momentum in this game.

Why you should support the Astros

Valdez takes the ball for Houston in Game 2 and plans to lead an outstanding run prevention team. Valdez, a 28-year-old lefty, was named a 2022 American League All-Star, and he posted a 2.82 ERA in more than 200 innings of work. This season Valdez has an elite 66.5% ground ball rate and he led the American League allowing just 0.49 home runs per nine innings.

Valdez also enters this game with a 1.42 ERA in 12.2 playoff innings this season, generating 15 hits and three walks. Behind him, Houston will deploy arguably the best bullpen in baseball, leading MLB with a 2.80 ERA and 10.45 strikeouts per nine innings during the regular season. Offensively, the Astros are balanced and powerful. Houston finished 2nd in the American League in home runs and strikeouts this season, with top-five AL marks in runs scored, walks, batting average, on-base percentage, OPS, doubles, slugging percentage and total bases.
