Kansas City Royals at Houston Astros, Game 4
Time: 1:00 p.m. ET
Pitching: RHP Yordano Vetnura (13-8, 4.08 ERA) vs. RHP Lance McCullers (6-7, 3.22 ERA)
The Astros lead the series 2-1, so the Royals will need a win to force a Game 5.
Toronto Blue Jays at Texas Rangers, Game 4
Time: 4:00 p.m. ET
Pitching: RHP R.A. Dickey (11-11, 3.91 ERA) vs. LHP Derek Holland (4-3, 4.91 ERA)
The Blue Jays were able to avoid the sweep on Sunday, but they'll still need two more wins to advance. Facing Derek Holland today might give them a fighting chance.
St. Louis Cardinals at Chicago Cubs, Game 3
Time: 6:00 p.m. ET
Pitching: RHP Michael Wacha (17-7, 3.38 ERA) vs. Jake Arrieta (22-6, 1.77 ERA)
This series is tied at one game each, but the Cubs have a heavy advantage with Arrieta taking the mound at Wrigley. But never count out the Cardinals in October.
Los Angeles Dodgers at New York Mets, Game 3
Time: 8:30 p.m. ET
Pitching: LHP Brett Anderson (10-9, 3.69 ERA) vs. RHP Matt Harvey (13-8, 2.71 ERA)
The Mets will run out of studly young pitchers eventually, I think, but apparently we're not there yet. Check back tomorrow.
