History Is Made: 2nd-Ever No-Hitter In 118 Years Of The World Series

After getting blown out of the ballpark on Tuesday night in Game 3, the Houston Astros' pitching staff had a big-time response in Game 4, shutting down the Philadelphia Phillies with a history-making no-hitter. It's the first combined no-no in the history of the World Series, and only the second one ever in the Fall Classic. 

The only other no-hitter in the World Series came 66 years ago, with the legendary perfect game of Don Larsen. 

Christian Javier completely silenced the Phillies' powerful bats, just one night after they'd blasted five home runs to take a 2-1 Series lead. Javier went six innings and 97 pitches, allowing just two walks, with nine strikeouts. 

Bryan Abreu came out of the 'pen in the 7th to strike out the side, while Rafael Montero and Ryan Pressly finished it off with a clean inning each, and the Astros were in the record books with a 5-0 win, while evening the World Series at 2-2. 

Javier also joined the record books on another count. This combined no-hitter thing isn't something that's new to him by any means. He was also key to a combined no-hitter against the New York Yankees back on June 25, making him the the first pitcher ever to start multiple combined no-hitters in a career. And he did it twice just 4+ months apart.
