A pitcher’s duel broke open in the top of the ninth inning as the Los Angeles Dodgers scored five runs (the latter three off a home run from Joc Pederson) to defeat the Houston Astros 6-2 in Game 4 of the World Series. With the series knotted at two games apiece, Game 5 will take place on Sunday night at 8 p.m. ET in Houston’s Minute Maid Park. Fox will televise the game, and FS1 will have a pregame show at 7 p.m. ET. Fans can also live-stream the game through Fox Sports Go.
It will be a battle of two aces between the Dodgers’ Clayton Kershaw and the Astros’ Dallas Keuchel. Combined, they have won four Cy Young awards (Kershaw three, Keuchel one). This is also a rematch of Game 1 of the World Series in which Kershaw outdueled Keuchel for a 3-1 win. After Houston Astros closer Ken Giles blew a save in Game 4, one has to wonder if Brad Peacock, who started 21 games this season but moved to the bullpen for the playoffs, will take over the closer role for the remainder of the postseason.
As well as Giles has done this year (2.30 ERA, 34 saves), his postseason struggles make him hard to trust right now. He’s given up at least one earned run in six of seven playoff appearances. Peacock earned an 11-out save to finish off Game 3, and his name wasn’t called in Game 4 given the previous night’s workload. However, after a day of rest, Peacock should be available to pitch again.
