The Houston Astros made history Wednesday with just the second World Series no-hitter ever, blanking the Philadelphia Phillies 5-0 in Game 4 of the 2022 World Series behind a four-pitcher effort led by starter Cristian Javier.
Houston’s performance also caused a popular Pennsylvania-based convenience store chain to suffer an extremely ill-timed promotion – one that was tied to when the Phillies would get a hit.
Wawa’s tweet, sent before first pitch of the eventual no-hitter, went downhill fast over the next several hours:
Meanwhile, others marveled at how unpredictable the series has been.
Undisputed co-host Skip Bayless also gave Javier plenty of credit after the no-hitter went final.
Javier went viral again on social media postgame when he told FOX Sports MLB reporter Ken Rosenthal that his parents predicted his historic performance.
