Despite losing both Max Scherzer and Adolis Garcia to injuries in Game Three of the World Series, the Texas Rangers extended their road dominance this postseason and took a 2-1 series lead after beating the Diamondbacks last night. The Rangers are now 9-0 on the road during the 2023 playoffs after being a below .500 team away from home in the regular season. Baseball is weird sometimes.
Hoping to make it a nice round 10 wins on the road in the postseason, Texas is turning to Andrew Heaney and his 4.15 regular season ERA in Game Four while the Diamondbacks will be sending Joe Mantiply to the mound.
2023 World Series Game Four: How to watch the Texas Rangers today (October 31)
The Rangers have to be feeling pretty good for tonight's Halloween World Series matchup, although not all the news is great. Adolis Garcia has been on an absolute tear during the playoffs, but it sounds like Adolis is going to have an MRI on his side and his ability to play the rest of the series is very much in question. If Heaney's previous postseason appearances are any indication, expect Texas to have him on a very short leash tonight even with Max's early exit in Game Three. Jon Gray's stellar three innings in relief last night helped that cause a LOT, but a bullpen game after your starter only goes three innings may not be ideal.

Coming off a hard fought win and potentially losing one of their best offensive players in Garcia, Game Four is going to tell us a lot about this Rangers team. It would be easy for them to have a letdown game especially against a Diamondbacks team that has proven to be surprisingly resilient this postseason. However, if Texas has shown anything during this playoff run, it is that they tend to rise to the occasion when their backs are against the wall and being on the road apparently is rather good news as well.
