I love Kyle Schwarber.
Man has no BS.
When informed that the Phillies were the second-most no-hitter in World Series history, he replied:
“I really don’t give sh–.”
Phillies sluggers Kyle Schwarber, Bryce Harper, Alec Bohm and Nick Castellanos reacted to the Houston Astros’ no-hitter pitch in Game 4 of the World Series Wednesday night. With the World Series tied, they’re looking to Game 5 and beyond. John Clark reports on his NBC10.
That was probably the best way to deal with what happened Wednesday night.
“A lot of people will see this as a big deal,” added Schwarber. “For us, it’s literally just a loss.”
he is right
embarrassingly Four Houston Astros pitchers went hitless One loss in a 5-0 loss in Game 4 of the World Series. The series is tied in two games. Game 5 is Thursday night. It will be the last game of the season at Citizens Bank Park. The Phils overcame a slow start, manager change and numerous injuries in 2022.
This is another subplot to keep things interesting.
“It’s been great for them,” Schwalber said of the Astros. “We did a no-hitter, which is great for them, but the series isn’t over. It’s up to two races.”

The race to two wins will see the Phillies return to Houston for at least a sixth game on Saturday. The Phillies still believe they can win it all, even if their pitching looks in favor of the Astros. The Astros will send Justin Verlander and Flamber Valdes to the mound for Games 5 and 6. 5 and Zach Wheeler battling arm fatigue in Game 6.
There are only three no-hitters in postseason history, and two of them came at Citizens Bank Park. Roy Halladay scored a no-hitter for his Reds in Game 1 of his 2010 National League Division series against Cincinnati, before the Astros held the Phillies hitless on Wednesday night.
Of course, the first no-hitter in postseason history came in 1956 when New York Yankees pitcher Don Larsen pitched a perfect game in Game 5 of the World Series.
The night before the no-hitter, the Phillies hit five homers en route to a 7–0 victory in Game 3.
The Phillies may or may not have picked up something from McCullers’ pitches when they sniffed out McCullers’ pitches and drove five of them over the wall. One night, Phils couldn’t figure out anything about right-hander Cristian Javier, except for the fact that he had a very good fastball.
Bryce Harper said “spin rate” was the reason Javier’s fastball was so effective. “His 93 (mph) he looks like he’s 97. The slider is good. He’s good.”
Javier has nine strikeouts and two walks in six innings.
“His fastball rides really well,” said Nick Castellanos. “So it’s pretty much a pitch that needs to be cheated a little bit to be able to square it, and cheating on his fastball is open to all his off-speed stuff. He and ( Catcher Christian Vazquez is doing a good job planning the game and throwing us off balance.”

The Phillies hitters have struck out 14 times. From No. 3 to No. 6 he hit JT Realmut, Harper, Castellanos, and Alek He Bohm went 0-for-12 combined, with 11 strikeouts and he walked one.
“Good pitching beats good hitting,” Harper said. “I have to wash this off and get ready for tomorrow.”
In Game 5, the Phillies will face another power arm named Verlander, who led the majors with a 1.75 ERA. The Phillies proved in Game 1 that they can attack Verlander. They trailed 5–0, but came back with a home run by Real Muto in the 10th inning to win.
This Phillies team has experience coming back from a no-hitter. On April 29, his five pitchers for the New York Mets had a combined no-hitter against the Phils at Citi Field. Aaron Nola, who was the starting pitcher in Wednesday night’s Game 4 loss, was also the starting pitcher in that game.
Shortly after Wednesday night’s loss, manager Rob Thomson, who was still his bench coach as of April 29, walked into the clubhouse to remind the Phils of their no-hitter loss.
He also reminded them that they bounced back and won the next day on the strength of second-half homers by Schwalber and Rhys Hoskins.
“Topper came right after the game and when we hit the last no-hitter, he said we came back and won the next day,” Castellanos said.
“We’ve done a great job this season holistically in the face of adversity. This is another opportunity.”
