The Houston Astros and New York Yankees meet on Sunday-evening in the Bronx for Game 4 of the American League Championship Series. The Astros lead the best-of-seven series with a three-game tally to zero, meaning they are one win away from finishing in the World Series for the second year in a row. The Yankees’ current ambitions are more modest — force a Game 5 on Monday and avoid a postseason sweep for the first time since the 2012 ALCS.
Due to rain in the New York area, Game 4 was delayed and started at 8:30 PM ET. The pitching matchup featured righthander Lance McCullers Jr. for the Astros and left-handed Nestor Cortes for the host Yankees. Cortes was chased after getting only six outs when the Astros stormed back with a four-run third inning to erase the Yankees’ early lead. Anthony Rizzo tied the game in the fourth inning with an RBI single.
The winner of this series will face the winner of the Philadelphia Phillies in the World Series. Below we provide live updates, highlights and run analysis for the potential winner at Yankee Stadium.
