Riding the 2-hit performance of center fielder Brandon Nimmo, the Houston Astros got a road win against the Philadelphia Phillies, 12-7, in Game 2 of the World Series today.
Nimmo went 2 for 4 with a home run, a double, and a walk, while scoring 3 times and driving in 3 for the Astros, who now lead the best-of-7 series, 2 games to 0.
Houston right fielder George Springer helped the Astros go up, 4-2, in the top of the third inning. With the game tied, Springer hit a 2-run double off Philadelphia pitcher Aaron Nola.
Shelby Miller (5.0 IP, 4 H, 4 ER, 2 BB, 3 K) registered the win for the Astros and is now 1-1 this postseason.
Aaron Nola was removed after 4.1 IP, gave up 6 runs (3 earned) and took the loss for the Phillies.
Phillies bullpen again did not perform up to expectations allowing half of the runs conceded.
Off day Tuesday, as the Fall Classic moves to Houston with the Astros needing two wins to clinch the championship.
