Nimmo, Astros Sink Phillies Again in Game 2
Riding the 2-hit performance of center fielder Brandon Nimmo, the Houston Astros got a road win against the Philadelphia Phillies, 12-7, in Game 2 of the World Series today. Nimmo went 2 for 4 with a home run, a double, and a walk, while scoring 3 times and driving in 3 for the Astros, who now lead the best-of-7 series, 2 games to 0.

Houston right fielder George Springer helped the Astros go up, 4-2, in the top of the third inning. With the game tied, Springer hit a 2-run double off Philadelphia pitcher Aaron Nola.

"We aren't quitting," Philadelphia manager Tristan Bugbie said. "Yeah, the odds are definitely in their favor, but they've got to earn it."

Game 3 is scheduled for Wednesday at Minute Maid Park. Slated to start are Severino Gonzalez for the Philadelphia Phillies and Carlos Carrasco for the the Houston Astros.
