2022 World Series: J.T. Realmuto's 10th inning home run completes Game 1 comeback over Astros

Oct 29, 2022

The Houston Astros took a 5-0 lead early in Game 1 with the favorite to win the AL Cy Young Award on the mound - it looked like they would coast the rest of the night.

But they aren't called the Fightin' Phils for no reason.

The Philadelphia Phillies scored six unanswered runs to complete the comeback and take Game 1 of the World Series, 6-5.

After Jose Altuve stole second on as bang-bang of a play you'll ever see, Jeremy Pena blooped one into shallow right-center, but Nick Castellanos laid out to make the catch to save the game and send it to extras. J.T. Realmuto immediately jumped on the opportunity - the catcher launched an opposite field home run to give the Phillies a 6-5 lead.
