World Series Game 4: Dodgers at Astros, game time, TV channel and starting pitchers

first_imgDodgers left-hander Alex Wood reached the All-Star break with a 10-0 record and a 1.67 ERA, having allowed just two home runs in 15 games. His velocity dropped some during the second half of the season, and his ERA over the final 12 games was 3.89 as he allowed 13 home runs in 71-2/3 innings.Wood will take the mound for Game 4 of the World Series on Saturday night having pitched just once in the past 30 days. The Dodgers didn’t get to his turn in the rotation during their NLDS sweep of the Arizona Diamondbacks, then Wood started their only loss of the five-game NLCS with the Cubs, allowing three home runs in 4-2/3 innings (seven strikeouts).The Astros will hand the ball to right-hander Charlie Morton exactly a week after he pitched five shutout innings and combined with Lance McCullers Jr. on a gem against the New York Yankees in Game 7 of the ALCS.Worth noting, both Wood and Morton were drafted by the Atlanta Braves, though they were not in the system at the same time.
