There may be only two baseball games left this year, and at any rate there will be no more than four, counting the one tonight. It’s been a fun series between the Astros and Dodgers so far and hopefully that will continue on through at least this weekend.
Saturday night’s Game 4 certainly doesn’t feature the same pitching star power, or at least not name recognition, as Game 1, Game 2, or even Game 3. That doesn’t mean that the game where Alex Wood starts for the Dodgers and Charlie Morton starts for the Astros won’t be a good one - just, you know, it’s not Kershaw or Verlander out there.
The Dodgers may want to try to employ a plan that result in their getting more than four hits. It’s always going to be a difficult proposition to win a game where the team gets such little offense. This is especially true when the starting pitcher gives up four runs in the second inning. Charlie Morton got blasted by the Yankees earlier in the playoffs, so maybe that will make this LA’s night.
