Game Thread; ALCS Game 4, Red Sox @ Astros, Oct 17, 2018, 7:39 CDT.

Charlie Morton takes the mound tonight to get the first of three straight Astros victories in the ALCS as the Stros are World Series bound again. You doubt it? Join the discussion.

MLB: Oakland Athletics at Houston Astros Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

It’s Charlie Freakin Morton, Astros playoff hero, pitching in his first playoff game in 2018, against Boston’s Rick Porcello. Morton’s been a little hurt, and hasn’t pitched since September, but I say he’s tan, rested and ready to lead the Astros back into the driver’s seat in the ALCS. After Morton the Astros bring on Justin Verlander and Gerrit Cole in games 5 and 6. I like our chances.

World Series bound. Here we go. It’s a whole new series starting tonight.

Here’s the lineup. Bregman is lead-off.
