The World Series is tied at two games apiece following a statement win in Game 4 of the World Series by the Houston Astros.
After the Philadelphia Phillies busted out for a 7-0 win in Game 3, Houston bounced back, throwing a combined no-hitter led by Cristian Javier, who got the start and threw six scoreless innings, striking out nine and walking just two.
Needless to say, everybody around baseball is pretty excited to see a combined no-hitter.
Alex Bregman is one of many who enjoyed the historic events of last night.
After the Astros’ pivotal victory, Bregman talked about the no-hitter and what it meant to him to have been a part of it.
Bregman: “I mean, it's crazy. We grew up watching the World Series. We know the baseball's been going on for a long, long time. So to be a part of, just be a teammate on a team that did that and what Javy and all the guys did is really special.”

Bregman Comments On No-No
Bregman wasted no time singing the praises of Javier and the rest of the Astros pitching staff.
Even with his hit being the biggest of the game, a two-run double back in the top of the fifth to make it 3-0, Bregman was more focused on the fact that his team had accomplished a historic feat.
It was the first combined no-hitter in postseason or World Series history.
Bregman certainly contributed to the Astros’ victory, but he was clearly more interested in what the team had accomplished rather than what he accomplished.
Javier led the way with six no-hit innings before giving way to the bullpen.
Justin Verlander will get the start tonight in Game 5.
