The LA Dodgers Score against the Houston Astros in game four of the World Series was six to two. What started out as a pitching dual, turned into a four run win by the Dodgers. This series is tied at two games a piece.
The Houston Astros could only muster two hits in nine innings. The Los Angeles Dodgers had seven hits. This game was tied one a piece in the seventh inning.
The Dodgers scored five runs in the top of the ninth to seal their second victory of this World Series. The Houston Astros hit a solo home run in the bottom of the ninth, too little too late. This was Houston’s first loss at home during the playoffs.
Charlie Morton for Houston, pitched six and one third innings while allowing one run. Alex Wood pitched five and two third innings while also allowing just one earned run. There were no errors in this game.
Houston Astros only manufactured two hits, but both of them were solo home runs. I watched this entire game and felt it might head to extra innings. That is until Houston’s bullpen ran into difficulties.
Two of their relief pitchers gave up a total of five runs, in the ninth inning, after Los Angeles could only score one run in the first eight innings. Meanwhile the Los Angeles Dodgers relief pitchers only gave up one run in basically three innings. Houston hosts game five of the World Series tomorrow night.
One item that I do know is that this will be at least a six game series. Houston is trying to win their first World Series championship in franchise history. The Los Angeles Dodgers are trying to win their first World Series since nineteen eighty eight.
Amazingly, both starting pitchers had terrible earned run averages this post season. One pitcher had a five ERA, while the other pitcher had a six ERA. Instead of a high scoring affair, this game was a pitchers dual for the most part.
