The Houston Astros became the first team in World Series history to throw two no-hitters in a single game. This was impressive considering Philly's home run barrage.
The World Series will be decided in Houston, where the series is tied 2-2, and thePhillies have one more game at home to win it.
The best moments from the game are listed.
The only no-hitter in World Series history has changed hands.
In the fourth game of the series, the Astros combined to no-hit the PhiladelphiaPhillies, riding off of six dominant pitchers and a combined relief effort. There were only two base runners in the game, and both of them walked off of the field. With a combination of a four-seam fastball and a slider, Javier was able to throw 97 pitches and strike out nine.
The Astros scored all five runs with no long ball. A few mistakes by Nola in the fifth allowed Houston to score all of its runs. Nola ended the night by allowing three runs on seven hits while striking out four.
The 19th combined no-hitter in MLB history is the first in the playoffs. On June 25 of this season, the Astros had a combined regular-season no-no against the New York Yankees. They've thrown 11 straight no-hitters, tying the Yankees 1939 for the longest streak in playoffs history.
This is the first time in MLB history that a team has hit five or more home runs in a single game and then have no-hit in the next game.
There have been two no-hitters at Citizens Bank Park. The Cincinnati Reds' manager was against Roy Halladay's no-no in the first game of the NLCS.
Domination is pure. It's absolute filthy.
Philadelphia was no match for the Houston Astros in the fourth game of the series.
The World Series start marked the continuation of an incredible postseason for Javier, who entered the evening allowing just one run in 6 1/3 frames pitched in the American League Division and Championship Series.
His four-seamer was thrown 72 percent of the time and his pitch was used 26 percent. There were two ground outs in the sixth by Brandon Marsh and Kyle Schwarber, both of which were hits over 90 mph. In the third game of the series, Philadelphia scored seven runs on five homers, but the offense struggled.
Bryan Abreu struck out the side in the seventh to keep the no-hitter going.

After a single by Nola, the Astros had two more singles by Jose Altuve and Jeremy Pea. Nola was removed from the game with the bases loaded and no outs.
Houston's first run of the night was scored when Yordan Alvarez was hit by a pitch, and he scored on a fielder's choice. Things only got worse for Philadelphia when Astros third baseman Alex Bregman hit a double to right field, scoring Altuve and Pena and giving Houston a 2-0 lead.
Nola's final pitching line was four hours with three earned runs on seven hits, no walks and four strikeouts.
The damage did not stop there. Astros outfielder Kyle Tucker knocked a sacrifice fly to center field to give the Astros a 2-0 lead. Gurriel knocked a single into left field to score Bregman and give Houston a five run lead. The damage was done when Christian Vzquez and Aldemys Daz were struck out by the pitcher.
There is beer in the family.
The wife of a baseball player called on fans to meet her for beer at Citizens Bank Park before the fourth game of the World Series.
