MLB Game Preview

After winning the first game of this series 3-1, it seemed the #Los Angeles Dodgers were going to continue to dominate their postseason opponents. However, Houston came through with a momentum-building 7-6 win in Game 2 in extra innings and then followed it with a 5-3 win in their last meeting.

The latest win by the Houston Astros saw four RBI from several different players in just the second inning. That included a 379-foot home run from Yuli Gurriel and singles from Marwin Gonzalez and Brian McCann. Alex Bregman also hit a sac fly to score Gonzalez for a fourth run of the inning. L.A. was unable to provide any sort of answer to that early outburst by the home team.

Dodgers' pitcher Yu Darvish basically got rocked in that inning and ended up taking the loss for the game, while winning pitcher Lance McCullers Jr struck out three in 5.1 innings while giving up just three runs. Brad Peacock recorded his first save of the series after striking out four in just over three innings on the mound.

On the mound for Game 4 will be left-hander Alex Wood for the L.A. Dodgers and right-hander Charlie Morton for the Astros.
