World Series: Astros vs Dodgers Game 4

The Houston Astros have been dominant at home throughout the postseason, and they retained that edge in their first game at Minute Maid Park in the World Series.

The Astros came up with a 5-3 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 3 and have a 2-1 edge heading into Game 4 Saturday night.

The Astros jumped on Dodgers pitcher Yu Darvish for four runs in the second inning to take charge, and the stunned Dodgers were never able to provide a proper answer.

Yuli Gurriel got the Astros started with a leadoff home run in that inning, and the Astros also received RBIs from Marwin Gonzalez on a base hit off the left-field wall, Alex Bregman on a sacrifice fly and Jose Altuve with a double off the left-field wall.

After Gurriel’s home run, he made a racist gesture concerning Darvish that was caught by the Fox cameras. He apologized for the gesture after the game, but he is scheduled to meet with Major League Baseball commissioner Rob Manfred prior to Game 4.

Lance McCullers Jr. came through with a solid effort as he gave the Astros 5.1 innings while allowing four hits and three runs. Houston manager A.J. Hinch went to his bullpen and tabbed Brad Peacock to come in and quiet the Dodgers’ bats.

Not only did Peacock shut down the Dodgers and get the last two outs of the sixth inning, he stayed in the game and shut the Dodgers down in the seventh, eighth and ninth innings.

Peacock recorded a 3.2-inning save and did not allow a hit during his outing.

The relief pitcher did not expect to close the game after he was given the ball.

“I never thought about saving the game,” Peacock said after the game during an MLB Network interview. “I was just thinking about getting one out at a time and I felt locked in like I’ve never been locked in before. I trusted my slider and my heater, and I hit my spots.”

Here’s the remaining schedule for the World Series. (All times ET.)

  10. Learn from this and don’t EVER do this ISH again. You should know better and be ashamed of yourself. It makes me sick.

  11. Why would Yuli Gurriel do something so stupid? I am furious. Just play the darn game. It makes me sick. Just sick. I want to see the Astros win the World Series. This is just beyond the pale. We don’t need this ISH.
