With Game 4 of the ALCS rained out in the Bronx on Wednesday, the Houston Astros faced an intriguing decision regard their starting pitching rotation — which has been the team’s strength in the series.

Before the Game 4’s postponement, the pitching plan for the Astros and New York Yankees was to use an assortment of bullpen pitchers from start to finish. That’s a concept likely favoring the Yankees. But, the rain gave the Astros a reprieve from that less than ideal scenario, as Game 4 will go to Zack Greinke.
