The Dodger have tied the series against the Astros with their 6-2 victory in Game 4 of the World Series! It was a battle till the very end, and highlights are fairly scarce due to excellent outings by both pitching staffs.
Let’s take a look at how it all went down!
Alex Wood was masterful in his start, and his performance was just what the Dodgers needed. Wood was pitching no-hit baseball into the 6th inning, when George Springer took him yard to put the Astros up 1-0. He would be pulled immediately after the home run and replaced with Brandon Morrow, who pitched 1.1 innings of no-hit baseball.
The Dodgers got on the board in the top of the 7th inning. A Cody Bellinger double, his first hit of the World Series, off of Charlie Morton got the party started. Morton would be replaced by Will Harris and Logan Forsythe would drive in Bellinger with an RBI single!
Houston’s Ken Giles would take over the mound for the top of the 9th and would give up a single to Corey Seager and walk Justin Turner to begin the inning. Then Cody Bellinger, who has struggled so much in this series, came up and hit an RBI double to put the Dodgers up 2-1! Austin Barnes would keep the runs coming with a sacrifice fly, scoring Charlie Culberson (who was running for Justin Turner) from third base!
According to Baseball Reference, Bellinger is now the youngest player in Dodgers history with an extra-base hit in the World Series and the youngest player in MLB history with two doubles in a World Series game.
Oh wait, did you think the offense was done? Well, you’d be wrong! Joc Pederson came to the plate with two runners on and hit a home run over the right field wall!

That put the Dodgers up 6-1, and Kenley Jansen would come in for the bottom of the 9th inning. He gave up a solo home run to Alex Bregman, but that would be it! The Dodgers have tied the series, 2-2, and have forced a Game 6 in Los Angeles!
