Jalen Hurts has not clearly stated which team he is rooting for in the World Series, but the Houston Astros seem confident that the star quarterback is on their side.

The Astros evened the World Series at 2-2 when they threw a combined no-hitter to beat the Philadelphia Phillies in Game 4 on Thursday night. Following the 5-0 victory, Houston’s official Twitter account trolled Philly fans by sharing a photo of Hurts repping the Astros.

Hurts, of course, is now one of the most prominent athletes in Philadelphia. He has led the Eagles to a 7-0 record this season and has them looking like a Super Bowl contender. It just so happens that he was born and raised in Houston, so he is a big fan of their local teams.

Hurts was asked recently about the Astros and Phillies playing in the World Series, and he basically set up a win-win for himself.
