The Tampa Bay Rays face the Houston Astros on Wednesday, October 14th at Petco Park for game four of the ALCS. 

The Tampa Bay Rays have moved within one game of their second World Series in franchise history, as the Rays took game three of the series on Tuesday night. The Rays defeated the Astros by the final score of 5-2 in that game, and they now own a 3-0 series lead. The Rays have only allowed five total runs in the first three games of the series, as their pitching staff has led the way thus far. The Astros started the 2020 postseason on the right foot, taking care of the Twins and Athletics in a timely fashion. Houston has had a lot of trouble with the Rays' pitching staff in this series, and the offense will have to figure it out in game four in order to avoid the sweep.

The Tampa Bay Rays are projected to bring right-hander Tyler Glasnow to the mound to face the Astros in game four. Glasnow went 5-1 with a 4.08 ERA during the regular season with the Rays. Glasnow has already pitched three times during the 2020 postseason, and he pitched two games on two days rest against the Yankees in the ALDS. Glasnow has racked up the strikeouts in the playoffs so far, but he has run into trouble at times. 

The Houston Astros will send their ace in right-hander Zack Greinke to the bump for game four of the series. Greinke went 3-3 with a 4.03 ERA during the regular season with the Astros. Greinke will pitch in his third game of this postseason and for the first time in this ALCS. In 8.2 innings in the playoffs, Grienke has allowed five earned runs and only has five strikeouts. 

With Glasnow on the mound, I like the Rays to complete the sweep and return to the World Series for the first time since 2008. The Rays have the Astros' number in this series, and there are no signs that tell me that the Rays will not complete the sweep on Wednesday night. I will take Tampa Bay on the money line.
