Cristian Javier and the Houston Astros pitch the second ever no-hitter in World Series history

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. This happens roughly once in a lifetime. Cristian Javier and the Houston Astros bullpen pitched a no-hitter in the World Series. Not one member of the Phillies got a hit, although a few of them walked. The Astros won the game and tied the series against Philadelphia, two games each. The only other World Series no-hitter ever belongs to Don Larsen. He pitched a perfect game for the Yankees in 1956 - 27 batters, 27 outs. It's MORNING EDITION.
