ALDS Game 4 Lineups: Astros vs Royals

New, 10 comments

A whole lot of the the same.

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

The Astros are looking for their first division series win since 2005, and their first playoff series win in the American League. The Astros and Royals will roll out the same lineup as Sunday's 4-2 Astros win.

Carlos Gomez is playing through his intercostal injury. Gomez was 1-for-4 with a key RBI in sixth inning. Gomez took a big swing in the second inning, and followed that with a bunt -- have to question if the injury led to that.

Chris Carter stays in the lineup after 3-for-3 day with a double and a home run.

Rookie Lance McCullers makes his first career postseason start, after going 6-7 with a 3.22 ERA in 22 regular season starts in 2015.
