World Series Game 4 Preview: Alex Wood Vs Charlie Morton

Published

on

The Houston Astros go for their eighth home win this postseason in as many attempts tonight against the Los Angeles Dodgers, as Game 4 of the World Series is set to begin at 8 PM ET.

In last night’s Game 3, Lance McCullers Jr. and Brad Peacock combined to four-hit the Dodgers in Houston’s 5-3 victory.

Tonight’s pitching matchup features two individuals making their World Series debut- Alex Wood of the Dodgers vs Charlie Morton of the Astros.

Wood has appeared in only one game this postseason, starting and losing Game 4 of the NLCS against the Chicago Cubs where he gave up three earned runs (all solo HR) in 4 2/3 innings; Morton’s 1-1 in three games/starts with a 6.23 ERA in Houston’s playoff run.

Both pitchers are coming off arguably their best regular season to date. Wood was 16-3 in 27 games/25 starts with a 2.72 ERA, while Morton was 14-7 with a 3.62 ERA in 25 games/starts.
