Cristian Javier led the Astros’ historic no-hit, no-run encounter over the Phillies in game four of the World Series. At the end of the match, the pitcher assured that his parents had already predicted that he would give a no-hitter during his performance at Citizens Bank Park.
“My parents told me I was going to throw a no-hitter today.Javier said at the end of the historic duel in statements to Fox News.
“We were in the hotel room and there we were talking about the game and he told me to stay positive and that if God allowed me tomorrow I was going to throw a no-hitter and no run. This is the best gift I can give my family, my father“, the pitcher from the Dominican Republic excitedly related.
Notably Cristian Javier was responsible for taking out the first six zeros of the match. He had a historic performance with 97 pitches in which he struck out nine opponents and only walked one.
However, it is not the first game without a hit or runs in which Javier is involved, since on June 25 he had been in charge of opening a game with a No-Hitter against the New York Yankees.
On this occasion his countrymen Bryan Abreu and Rafael Montero together with the closer Ryan Pressly were in charge of concretizing the work of Cristian Javier in a historic night. For now, the series is tied at two games apiece between the Phillies and Astros.
