The Houston Astros probably weren't thinking pitching Justin Verlander on three days' rest would be a problem, but they're already experiencing issues during Game 4 of the ALDS. In the bottom of the first inning, Tommy Pham crushed a solo home run off the right-hander to make it 1-0.
Goodbye! And the Trop is going nuts!!
Verlander then issued a walk and a single to put runners on first and second before Travis d'Arnaud delivered with a clutch RBI single to make it 2-0.
Then came a Joey Wendle RBI double to make it 3-0!
Are we sure that's Verlander pitching? He got out of trouble with runners on second and third, but this certainly doesn't bode well for the Astros.
