Which channel has the World Series?: Game 3, Houston Astros at Philadelphia Phillies
The World Series returns to Philadelphia for the first time since 2009.
The Phillies host the Houston Astros on Monday night in Game 3 of the 2022 World Series, their first home game of the series. First pitch is scheduled for 8:03 pm ET and will air on Fox. The teams split the first two games in Houston, 1-1.
The last time the Phillies hosted a World Series game was in 2009, when they lost to the New York Yankees. It was also the last time Philadelphia made the playoffs. But after a remarkable postseason run that followed an 87-win season, it’s back to the Fall Classic.
Noah Syndergaard (10-10, 3.94 ERA) is expected to start for the Phillies against Lance McCullers Jr. of Houston (4-2, 2.27 ERA). The Astros are the betting favorites at -130, with the Phillies at +110, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
The Phillies handed the Astros their first loss of the postseason in Game 1, a thrilling 6-5 victory in 10 innings. Houston evened the series by winning the second game 5-2.
With the division in Houston, Philadelphia now has home field advantage. Games 3, 4 and 5 are all at Citizens Bank Park, where the Phillies are a perfect 5-0 this postseason.
Showers are forecast for Monday night, according to the National Weather Service, which estimated the chance of precipitation at 70%. The temperature during the game was expected to be around 61 degrees.
