The Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the Houston Astros in Game 4 on Saturday (local time), reclaiming the home-field advantage that they squandered in Game 2 and handing the Astros their first defeat at home this postseason. At Minute Maid Park in Houston, the Dodgers won the game 6-2, tying the Series at two games apiece.
Tensions ran high as the two teams were only making the score 1-1 until the eighth inning, but the Dodgers finally got a lead during the ninth inning when rookie Cody Bellinger got a hit against Ken Giles, who had to leave the mound without getting a chance to turn the tide later in the inning. The Dodgers showed incredible strength in the ninth inning, making Astros reliever Joe Musgrove to allow Austin Barnes’ sacrifice fly and Joc Pederson’s three-run homer, letting the Dodgers add five in the ninth inning alone and making the score 6-1.
In Game 5, the Dodgers will send ace Clayton Kershaw while Astros’ Dallas Keuchel is scheduled to pitch on the mound.
