World Series: Astros throw no-hitter in Game 4 win over Phillies to even series

Houston starting pitcher Cristian Javier and Astros bullpen teamed up to throw the first combined no-hitter in World Series history, earning them the 5-0 win in Game 4 over the Philadelphia Phillies on Wednesday in Philadelphia. Javier issued nine strikeouts, two walks and earned strikes on 63 of his 97 pitches Wednesday at Citizens Bank Park. Astros relievers Bryan Abreu, Rafael Montero and Ryan Pressly pitched for the final three innings to complete the rare feat.

The four Astros pitchers threw just the second overall no-hitter in World Series history; Don Larsen pitched (solo) the first World Series no-hitter for the New York Yankees in 1956.

The best-of-seven game series is now tied 2-2. Game 5 will be Thursday at 8:03 p.m. EDT Thursday in Philadelphia.
