The LA Dodgers and the Houston Astros clash on Saturday night in Game 4 of the 2017 World Series as the Astros look to move to within one more win of claiming the title. The game has a scheduled start time of 8.20 p.m. ET and takes place from Minute Maid Park in Houston, Texas. The game can be watched on TV on the Fox network or online through live stream (details below).
The Astros have yet to taste defeat at Minute Maid Park this postseason, and that is a record that Dodgers have to break if they are to have any chance of winning this season's World Series.
Houston won Game 3 by a score of 5-3 to take the lead in this series for the first time, and with the next two games set to take place in Houston as well, they could potentially claim the World Series in front of their home fans in Game 5.
Game 3 got away from the Dodgers as early as the second inning, when the Astros hitters smashed LA pitcher Yu Darvish for four runs. The Dodgers could never recover from that and that has given the Astros a great opportunity tonight to take a tight grip of this series.
The Dodgers will send left-handed pitcher Alex Wood to the mound for Game 4 as they look to square the series by doing what no team has managed this postseason; defeat the Astros in Houston.
The Astros will look to move to within one more win of the World Series title by sending out Charlie Morton to the mound.
Word has had a fantastic season, going 16-3 with an ERA of 2.72 with 123 strikeouts across 152.1 innings. However, he has pitched just 4.2 innings in the postseason, going 0-1 with a 5.79 ERA.
Morton similarly did well in the regular season, going 14-7 with a 3.62 ERA, before suffering a tougher time in the postseason, going 1-1 in the Playoffs with a 6.23 ERA. He has given up 15 hits across his 13 innings, and the Dodgers will be looking to go after him from the start tonight.
