The Texas Rangers still hold a 2-1 advantage in the ALCS over their rival, the Houston Astros. No one expected the Astros to lay down for the Rangers, and they found their offense in Game 3. The Rangers desperately want to win tonight to extend their series lead and get one win closer to a return trip to the World Series. A loss would knot the series at two games and shift home field advantage back to the Astros.
At this time, neither the Rangers nor the Astros have named a starter for Game 4 of the ALCS. The Rangers will more than likely go with some combination of Andrew Heaney and Dane Dunning. In the ALDS Heaney started Game 1 with Dunning coming in to relieve him, with two outs in the fourth inning. Manager Bruce Bochy could easily flip the two and start Dunning, but we will just have to wait and see how he decides to play it.
Last night the Rangers' fans were somewhat taken out of the game early with the Astros scoring so much in the first few innings. Tonight, hopefully the Rangers will give the sellout crowd something to cheer about all night long.
