Today's Lineups

HOUSTON ASTROS NEW YORK YANKEES
George Springer - CF Brett Gardner - LF
Josh Reddick - RF Aaron Judge - RF
Jose Altuve - 2B Didi Gregorius - SS
Carlos Correa - SS Gary Sanchez - DH
Yulieski Gurriel - 1B Greg Bird - 1B
Alex Bregman - 3B Starlin Castro - 2B
Carlos Beltran - DH Aaron Hicks - CF
Marwin Gonzalez - LF Todd Frazier - 3B
Brian McCann - C Austin Romine - C
Lance McCullers - RHP Sonny Gray - RHP

The Houston Astros have again changed their lineup for Game 4. Gone are Cameron Maybin and Evan Gattis. In again are Brian McCann and Carlos Beltran.

The Astros are facing right-handed pitcher Sonny Gray and that means that Josh Reddick has been moved back up to the No. 2 spot. But Alex Bregman isn’t hitting at the bottom of the lineup this time as a corner move, Bregman is the No. 6 spot. While the struggling Marwin Gonzalez is batting No. 8, he is batting .125 (3x24) with one extra-base hit and two RBIs.

The biggest change for the Yankees is Austin Romine gets the call at catcher while Gary Sanchez is at designated hitter. Romine is likely out to help with Gray’s tough breaking pitches in the dirt.

Outside of that change the Yankees are still staying with the same top four in the lineup: Brett Gardener, Aaron Judge, Didi Gregorius, and Sanchez.
