Apparently the World Series is starting (who would know, when the LCS’s ended almost a week ago). If you’re rooting for the Astros, you’re going to get a lot of Phillies-biased tweets here, and rightfully so. If you’re on the Phillies bandwagon, welcome, there’s a lot to see here.

Oh, and uh, just forget about that thing that happened with Twitter and hate on the Astros.
Elon Musk roots for the Astros— Dump Ump (@DumpOnTheUmp) October 28, 2022
The Astros made an interesting choice for music to come out to.
LMAO they're playing Avengers music??????— Stephen (@TangoGolfKilo) October 28, 2022
Root for the Phillies, if not for the fact that the Astros suck, but so that they can’t go 11-0 in the playoffs
With a win tonight, the @astros would tie the MLB record for longest winning streak to start the postseason pic.twitter.com/M8rpPu8OSi— FOX Sports: MLB (@MLBONFOX) October 28, 2022
Oh yeah, you probably want to know who’s starting, don’t you?

Jeremy Peña: great stance, struck out.
Jeremy Peña has that batting stance kids are going to practice in the mirror for years— Chris Pennant (The Black Sydney Carton) (@kwandarykitten) October 29, 2022
Bryce Harper: Hot, also struck out.
bryce harper is so hot and then justin verlander just looks like some guy you’d see at the lake— scout (@septa_lemore) October 29, 2022
Verlander has some evil magic going on early.
I’m not one to cast aspersions but if the Phillies destroy the phylactery Verlander has hidden in his lich lair they might have a better chance of victory tonight— . (@OldHossRadbourn) October 29, 2022
Kyle Tucker puts the Astros up, 1-0, with a leadoff home run in the second.

Why isn’t second base “a corner”?— Dump Ump (@DumpOnTheUmp) October 29, 2022
It’s 2-0 stros now.
Gotta love a perfectly executed hit-and-run in the World Series. Can't do it much better than Martin Maldonado did.— Jeff Passan (@JeffPassan) October 29, 2022
Houston leads, 2-0.
Altuve double play to end the inning.
Or Altuve could hit into a 6-4-3. He's hitting .088 in the postseason https://t.co/djgyXpnBok— Jesse Rogers (@JesseRogersESPN) October 29, 2022
A bad call at first base gets overturned, and the Phillies get a crucial out in the third.
“idk he mighta been safe his feet are huge”-me doing baseball analysis— alyssa, the hornt phillies watcher, (@alyssakeiko) October 29, 2022
Kyle Tucker hits another home run in the third, and it’s 5-0, Houston.

Well this will most likely be the most unenjoyable World Series of all time— Sergio Santos fan club (@santossergio46) October 29, 2022
A little blooper from Nick Castellanos puts the Phils on the board, and a double from Alec Bohm puts up two more, and it’s 5-3 Astros in the fourth.

J.T. Realmuto hits a wall-banging double in the fifth to tie the game, 5-5.

if you go up 5-0 in a game it seems like a bad idea to let the other team then score 5 runs in a row but i’m no baseball expert so i could be wrong— Shea Serrano (@SheaSerrano) October 29, 2022

Kyle Schwarber steals second, our hearts, and tacos in the seventh to get himself in scoring position.
Thank you Kyle for the taco— Al (@baseballgalal) October 29, 2022

Realmuto and Harper walk, and Castellanos heads to the plate with the bases loaded and two outs.
Oh god what awful thing is going to happen in this commercial break— whitest sox u'know (@flannelGoddess) October 29, 2022
And Castellanos strikes out to end the seventh.

Nothing doing in the eighth, so we head to the ninth still tied at five.
I'm enjoying the hell out of Game 1.— Josh Nelson (@soxmachine_josh) October 29, 2022
As a nervous eater, no doubt I would have already ate a Party Sized bag of Doritos if White Sox were in a World Series game tied late. This has to be intense for Astros and Phillies fans.
Altuve bloops a single with two outs and attempts to steal second — he is called safe and we go to review, but the call stands.
UMPIRES ARE COPS AND ALL COPS ARE BASTARDS— Stephen (@TangoGolfKilo) October 29, 2022
The greatest defender in the history of baseball, Nick Castellanos, makes a great sliding catch to end the inning and send the game to the 10th.

J.T Realmuto rocks a ball over the right-field wall to lead off the 10th, and the Phillies have their first lead of the game, 6-5.

Bregman barehands a ball that beats Bohm to base one.
Alex Bregman made that look way too easy.— Josh Nelson (@soxmachine_josh) October 29, 2022
Damn, Bregman is so good.— Trooper Galactus (@TrooperGalactus) October 29, 2022
We go to the bottom of the 10th with an old friend alert, as David Robertson takes the hill for the Phils.

Bregman hits a double to left, and there’s now a runner in scoring position with one out.
The thud when he ran into the building— temp Phillies fan (@DontizzleJones) October 29, 2022
Yuli Gurriel walks, and a wild pitch sends the runners to second and third with two outs — and then Aledmys Díaz puts himself in the way of a pitch.
Ah. The David Robertson experience is turning it up to 11.— Josh Nelson (@soxmachine_josh) October 29, 2022

Robertson completes the save, and the Phillies take Game 1, 6-5.
FINAL: Phillies 6, Astros 5— Jeff Passan (@JeffPassan) October 29, 2022
Down 5-0, Phillies score 5 off Verlander, get a game-saving Castellanos catch in the 9th, a Realmuto homer in the 10th and a wobbly Robertson save to win Game 1 of the World Series.
Doesn't make much sense. Win anyway. The 2022 Philadelphia Phillies.
