When the Phillies went down 5-0 early in Game 1 and Justin Verlander was cruising, I (and probably you) figured: “This game is over.”
But it wasn’t. The Phillies made one of the most amazing comebacks in World Series (and postseason) history, winning on a J.T. Realmuto home run in the 10th inning — but not until after a fantastic game-saving catch by, of all people, Nick Castellanos [VIDEO].
Just how amazing was that comeback?
