J.T. Realmuto leads epic comeback as Phillies hand Astros first postseason loss


The J.T. Realmuto game.

Realmuto hit a go-ahead solo home run to start the 10th inning, giving the Phillies a 6-5 lead and eventual World Series Game 1 win.

Realmuto also tied the game in the 5th with a two-run double, as the Phils erased a 5-0 deficit. Realmuto finished the game 3-4 with a double, a home run, a walk, 3 RBI, and a run scored.

Realmuto is the first catcher with an extra innings home run in the World Series since 1975.

In the bottom of the 9th, Realmuto also almost miraculously threw out Jose Altuve who stole second base with two outs, only to be saved by a diving Nick Castellanos catch.
