The Astros are hoping to take a lead in the series after night things up on Wednesday night. Theyll have to get through Braves starter Ian Anderson with Luis Garcia taking the mound for Houston.
Anderson is 1-0 this postseason with an ERA of 3.58. Garcia was pulled after 2.2 innings in the ALDS against the White Sox, though Houston went on to win that game. He pitched 6.2 innings in a win over the Red Sox in the ALCS. This will be his very first World Series appearance.
