Game 4 Preview 

On Saturday night game 4 of the World Series between the Dodgers and the Red Sox was played at Dodger Stadium in southern California. 

 Game 4 Starters 

The starting pitchers for game 4 of the World Series were 25-year-old Eduardo Rodriguez for Boston and the 38-year-old Rich Hill for Los Angeles.  Eduardo Rodriguez pitched 5.2 innings against the Dodgers and allowed 4 runs on 4 hits to the boys in blue.  On the other hand, the Dodgers pitcher Rich Hill hand a great World Series outing.  Hill pitched 6.1 innings and only game up one run on one hit to Boston.  

 Game 4 Scoring  

The Dodgers got on the board first in the 6th innings by a throwing error from the Red Sox catcher Christian Vazquez, when Cody Bellinger ground out to first, and the first baseman Steve Pearce threw home to get the force out and then Vazquez threw the ball away allowing Justin Turner to score from second giving the Dodger an 1-0 lead.  

L.A. would add some more runs in the bottom of the sixth when their right fielder Yasiel Puig stepped up to the plate with runners on first and third.  Puig would blast a 3-run-home run far and deep into the right field bleachers extending L.A.’s lead to 4-0. 

A half-inning later Boston would claw their way back into the game when their catcher Mitch Moreland stepped up to the plate with runners on first and second.  Moreland would explode on an off-speed offering from Ryan Madson.  Moreland would send the ball half-way up the right field bleachers and cut L.A.’s lead down to one, making the game 4-3 Dodgers.  

An inning later in the top of the 8th Boston would tie the game up a 4 a piece by a solo home run from their first baseman Steve Pearce. 

Boston would add 5 more runs in the top half of the 9th inning.  Boston would get their first run in the 9th when Boston sent up pinch hitter Rafael Devers delivered an RBI single up the middle that scored Brock Holt from second giving Boston a slim 5-4 lead.  

However, that slim lead would soon get bigger.  When Steve Pearce stepped up to the plate again.  Pearce would clear the bases with a 3-run RBI double into the right-center field gap extending the lead 8-4.   

For good measure two batters later Xander Bogaerts hit an RBI single into center with runners on first and second, now making the game 9-4 in favor of Boston. 

The Dodgers would make a slim dent in Boston’s big lead with a two-run home run from center fielder Kike’ Hernandez.  Making the game 9-6 Boston. 

 Game 4 Recap 

However, that would not be enough for L.A.  Boston would hold on to that 9-6 lead, by shutting down L.A.’s offense the rest of the game.  Boston’s closer Craig Kimbrel would get the final out by getting Cody Bellinger to fly out to left fielder Andrew Benintendi and securing the win for Boston. 

With that game 4-win, Boston would take a commanding 3-1 lead in the series and now only need one more win to win the World Series.
