We take a look at the three biggest takeaways from Game 4 as the Houston Astros were able to tie up this World Series with the Washington Nationals at two games.
The Washington Nationals have dropped the first two games at home in this World Series and allowed the Houston Astros to tie things up with an 8-1 win in Game 4.
Home field advantage hasn’t meant much so far in this World Series as neither home team has won a game.
That’s a bit unusual as both teams were excellent at home this season. The Astros won 60 games at home, while the Nationals won 50 games at Nationals Park.
But now the Nationals have just one more chance to get a win at home in this World Series before things shift back to Houston.
And while Rendon had a couple of hits in Game 4, it was Bregman who had his signature moment with 5 RBI, including a grand slam to put the game away in the seventh.
As Nationals fans, you just have to keep hoping Rendon will have his moment at some point.
Again, the Nats third baseman now has 4 hits in this series, but none of them in the biggest moments of the game. At some point the Nats are going to need him to have that moment if Washington is going to win the World Series.
To be honest, there’s not much to breakdown from Game 4. There isn’t really a key moment or two that swung this game one way or the other — the Astros just simply won the game.
But we’ll look at the three biggest takeaways from Game 4 and what it could mean going forward.
