The Astros and White Sox will face off in an elimination game for the second straight matchup when they take the field for game four. Houston is looking to finish off this best-of-five series as they hold the two games to one advantage and thanks to some bad weather in Chicago, they get to put Lance McCullers on the hill today. The Astros originally had  Jose Urquidy slated to start for game four but Dusty Baker has elected to start McCullers with the extra day of rest. 

The White Sox will also have their ace throwing in this one as Carlos Rodon gets the start, marking the first start of the postseason. The lefty is coming off an incredible year where he not only went 13-5 with a 2.37 ERA, but he also tossed a no-hitter in his second start of the season. Rodon faced the Astros twice this year and was dominant, allowing just one run on four hits in 14 innings for a 0.64 ERA.


The White Sox will look to keep their bats. They not only scored 12 runs in game three, but also record 16 hits, five walks and saw a lineup that had five different players put together multi-hit games.

The White Sox jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the first inning of game three on a Eloy Jimenez RBI single, but before Chicago could blink, the Astros roared back to take a 5-1 lead by the third inning. Then the Sox responded with five-run bottom of the third thanks to a two-run homer by Yasmani Grandal and a three-run home run by Leury Garcia. The South Siders would tack on three more in the fourth and another three runs in the eighth.  

The White Sox are 1.5-run favorites against the Astros. The over/under is 8.5.
