The Astros were able to get 1 in the win column last night, can they do it again? So far this World Series, teams can only win on the road!
Houston Astros at Washington Nationals
2019 MLB World Series: Game 4
Give me the Astros again! I win not waiver on them during this Fall Classic. Finally, the moneyline for both teams is close (-112 Astros, -108 Nationals) and the total is set to 8.5 runs (-115 OVER). I, of course, am sticking with the Astros and I like this game to hit the 9-run threshold. Neither starting pitcher has been promising this postseason so a high scoring game seems to be on the slate tonight.
|Houston Astros||Washington Nationals|
|Starting Pitcher: Jose Urquidy||Starting Pitcher: Patrick Corbin|
|1. George Springer||1. Trea Turner|
|2. Jose Altuve||2. Adam Eaton|
|3. Michael Brantley||3. Anthony Rendon|
|4. Alex Bregman||4. Juan Soto|
|5. Yulieski Gurriel||5. Howie Kendrick|
|6. Carlos Correa||6. Ryan Zimmerman|
|7. Robinson Chirinos||7. Victor Robles|
|8. Jake Marisnick||8. Yan Gomes|
|9. Jose Urquidy||9. Patrick Corbin|
Both teams insert some new guys into their lineups in hopes of finding an advantage tonight.
The World Series… so far!
The Astros were able to get a victory in Game 3 but the Nationals remain on top 2-1 as we enter Game 4. The road team has won each game this World Series and I see that trend continuing, at least through Game 4 tonight. Also, the first 2 games were high-scoring and last night’s game was fairly low-scoring. The Nationals continue to fear their own bullpen.
Game 4 Takes
Let’s make this short and sweet, neither starting pitcher has performed well and both teams altered their lineups for this game. Not a single Washington National has ever faced Urquidy so there’s the advantage for Houston in this one. Meanwhile, Houston has inserted Marisnick into the lineup in place of Reddick because Marisnick is 4-5 in his career with an RBI on the Nationals starter, Corbin. It should be noted, George Springer is 4-6 with 4 RBI’s against Corbin in his career. I like the Astros and their experience in this one. I also seem them being able to get the Nationals into their bullpen fairly quickly.
