Kansas City’s rally in Game 4 has forced a winner-take-all contest in their American League Division Series against Houston on Wednesday. The eliminator will be played at Kauffman Stadium and is on October 14, 2015. The game starts at 8:07 PM ET.
The series is tied after a heartbreaking loss at Minute Maid Park on Monday, but the Houston Astros are focused on game five with pitcher Collin McHugh starting on the mound.
Houston have greatly impressed so far in the series as they came in as the wild card and are in fifth place in the standings.
The odds were greatly against them as they were pitted against the top-seeded Royals who won 95 matches in the regular season.
However, to the Astros, those were only numbers and will not determine how the series is going to be played.
They came in Game 1 with a sense of purpose and were very aggressive, which ultimately paid off as they won 5-2 despite playing away from their home field.
In the second game, the match was close and Houston’s drive was still present as they held things close against the Royals, but the hosts came to win 5-4 to tie the series.
When the scene shifted, Houston regained the series lead with a 4-2 win in Game 3 and were now only one win away from completing the big upset and moving on to the next round of the competition.
However, Kansas City also showed that they were a strong team and will not go down easily as they took it to the hosts and put up nine runs in the game to even the series at 2-2 with a 9-6 victory.
Now there is only one game left and Kansas City are back at home to try and wrap things up and stop a big upset in the early rounds of the postseason.
Collin McHugh is projected to start for the Astros, while Johnny Cueto will be on for the Royals
