Houston Astros defeat Philadelphia Phillies and win Game 7 to tie the World Series.

The Houston Astros recovered admirably to win 5-2 in Game 2 of the World Series on Saturday to even the series after suffering a heartbreaking loss to the Philadelphia Phillies in Game 1 on Friday.

The Astros offense demonstrated its superiority once more by scoring five runs to tie the series at one game each and send it back to Philadelphia.

According to MLB.com, manager Dusty Baker remarked, "It was almost a mathematical necessity, actually, because it's tough when you lose the first two games at home."

With three runs scored against Phillies starting pitcher Zack Wheeler in the first inning, Houston got the game going quickly. 

Wheeler pitched for five innings and allowed five runs, four of which were earned.

Starting pitcher Framber Valdez for the Astros was pitching well through 6.1 innings, giving up just one run on just four hits while striking out nine batters.
