The 2022 World Series has had a bit of everything: big comebacks, great pitching outings, and in the case of Game 3, home run barrages.

The Phillies enter Game 4 on Wednesday with a 2-1 lead in the series after a five-home run outburst in Game 3 that sent Houston starter Lance McCullers Jr. to the dugout after just 4 1/3 innings. Bryce Harper, Alec Bohm and Brandon Marsh started it off, and then Kyle Schwarber and Rhys Hoskins finished it to drive McCullers out.

The power display showed the depth of the Phillies’ order and highlighted why they’ve been so good this postseason, particularly at home. The club has homered 17 times at Citizens Bank Park in these playoffs and are 6-0.

They’ll be facing Christian Javier in Game 4. Javier has been lights out this postseason, posting a 1.35 ERA over two games: a start against the Yankees and a relief appearance against the Mariners.

Astros vs. Phillies live updates, highlights from 2022 World Series

(Live updates will begin before the game. All times Eastern.)

8:57 p.m. — Alvarez goes behind on a fastball and flies out to left field to end the inning. It’s too early to say definitively, but pitching is ruling the day early.

8:56 p.m. — Peña works Nola to a full count but goes down swinging. It’ll be Alvarez up next as we get (further) into the teeth of the Astros order.

8:53 p.m. — Altuve comes up first pitch swinging and grounds out to Bohm at third. It’ll be Jeremy Peña up with the quickness.

8:49 p.m. — Javier saws off Stott and gets him to pop out to short to end the inning. Despite the leadoff runner, not a lot of high-stress pitches that inning.

8:48 p.m. — Bohm swings and misses and Harper steals second on a high throw from Vasquez. Altuve tried to swipe tag him but missed, so the inning lies on Bryson Stott, who has had some great at-bats this series but still no hits.

8:46 p.m. — Harper is getting a huge secondary lead that is obviously getting to Javier, who is even 2-2 with Bohm after missing in the dirt with a slider.

8:44 p.m. — Castellanos strikes out on three pitches, quick work from Javier. Got him slider-slider-slider. Alec Bohm digs in now with one out.

8:42 p.m. — Bryce Harper worked Javier to a full count and draws the walk. He might have caught a break on that 2-2 pitch — particularly considering the second strike — but he’s on to lead off the inning with Nick Castellanos stepping up.

8:37 p.m. — Nola gets out of it! He goes to the curveball three straight times to get McCormick swinging and get out of the inning. Huge inning there for the Phillies pitcher.

8:34 p.m. — Nola gets Diaz swinging with a cutter after three straight curveballs. Just a brutal strikeout, and now the hopes of the second inning rest of Chas McCormick, who takes a bender over the middle to go down 0-1.

8:31 p.m. — Nola plunks Christian Vasquez on his upper arm, and Aledmys Diaz will try to drive in Tucker with the double play in play.

8:28 p.m. — Kyle Tucker continues to give Nola nightmares. After Nola gets up 0-2, Tucker rakes a double into right field to give the Astros a man in scoring position with no outs. Yuli Gurriel follows up by grounding out and Tucker swipes third on the throw over from Bohm.

8:24 p.m. — Javier gets Realmuto swinging with a slider for the third out of the inning. His stuff looks solid early as well.

8:22 p.m. — Hoskins battled for a long time with a few foul balls, but Javier against gets Hoskins to catch it away from the barrel for the second out via popout. J.T. Realmuto now digs in.

8:19 p.m. — Schwarber just missed in a 1-2 count against Javier, catching if off the end of the bat on a lively fastball. The crowd got excited but Schwarber immediately hung his head. Good pitch by Javier ahead in the count with Rhys Hoskins stepping up.

8:15 p.m. — Re: Nola. His last fastball against Peña was 90.4 mph in Game 1. His average in that inning was 95.4 mph. Seems like the rest is doing him well.

8:14 p.m. — The shift makes things hard for the Phillies with two outs, but Jean Segura throws out Bregman on a ground ball right of the bag to get Nola out of the inning. Schwarber coming up next.

8:11 p.m. — Alvarez seemed to be on Nola that entire at-bat, and he finally flips one out to the gap in left-center for a single to bring up Alex Bregman.

8:08 p.m. — And Nola strikes out Peña in short order. Really good-looking stuff from Nola early on.

8:07 p.m. — Altuve tips one off the end of the bat to right-center but it hangs long enough for Brandon Marsh to get to with relative ease. First batter is retired with Jeremy Peña stepping up.

8:04 p.m. — Nola gets things started right by blowing a 95 mph fastball past Altuve, and we’re underway.

8:01 p.m. — Chase Utley and Mac have a catch alongside Jimmy Rollins and Miles Teller.

7:45 p.m. — Here’s a sneak peek at Javier before he hits the bullpen to finish up his warmup.

7:40 p.m. — Here’s a look at the Astros starting lineup, with Christian Javier on the mound.

7:40 p.m. — The Phillies are staying true to their lineup with Aaron Nola on the mound.
