Well, that was a nice way to treat the home fans. Five home runs.
The Phillies kept alive their post-season home unbeaten streak with a 7-0 shutout of the Astros.
It’s easy to gush over the five home runs. But just as impressive is shutting out the Astros powerful offense, which was the second most potent in the American League.
Bryce Harper got the home run parade going in the first with a two-run shot. Alec Bohm and Brandon Marsh hit solo shots in the second. The Phillies piled on in the fifth with a Kyle Schwarber two-run homer followed by a Rhys Hoskins home run.
The Astros were shell shocked and never recovered.
Phillies fans, on the other hand, are getting pretty used to watching this.
