The starters of World Series Game 4 couldn’t be more different.
The Astros will hand the ball to 38-year-old Zack Greinke, who, between the MLB regular and the playoffs, has 3,219 innings pitched during a Hall of Fame career. The Braves will start the game with 27-year-old rookie Dylan Lee on the mound, who has accumulated a total of 4.2 MLB innings over his career.

The usage for both teams, however, could stay the same. Greinke missed the time in September with a neck injury and returned to the Houston lineup as a reliever. He’s yet to pitch more than 1.1 innings in the playoffs. He hits the eighth in the lineup and could potentially have an early exit for a pinch hitter.
Lee is starting a boxing game and certainly shouldn’t eat much more than an innings or two before giving way to another reliever. Lee already made an appearance in this World Series when he pitched 0.2 innings in Game 2. He allowed one of the two legacy base runners to score, but didn’t give up a hit. He took one out.
Braves manager Brian Snitker is hoping this reliever box game can put an end to the Astros’ dangerous lineup as his side aim to take the 3-1 lead in the World Series. If Atlanta won, he would have a chance at home in Game 5 on Sunday. The Astros, meanwhile, are hoping to steal a road game and force the series back to Houston.
