Chicago is sticking with its scheduled starter, while Houston is forgoing José Urquidy for McCullers, who was brilliant over 6 2/3 scoreless innings in Game 1. The Astros have a chance to return to a fifth straight ALCS with a win, but the White Sox have a .659 winning percentage at Guaranteed Rate Park this season.

Milwaukee Brewers at Atlanta Braves, 5:07 p.m. on TBS

NLDS Game 4, Braves lead 2-1
MIL: LHP Eric Lauer (0-0, 0.00)
ATL: RHP Charlie Morton (0-1, 3.00)

The Braves just shut out the Brewers for a second straight game, giving them six postseason shutouts over the past two seasons. All other major league teams have combined for five during that span. Milwaukee will need for its bats to wake up to return home for a potential Game 5 on Thursday.

San Francisco Giants at Los Angeles Dodgers, 9:37 p.m. on TBS
NLDS Game 4, Giants leads 2-1
HP Anthony DeSclafani (0-0, 0.00 ERA)
LAD: RHP Walker Buehler (0-1, 4.26 ERA)

The Dodgers have already faced elimination this postseason when they battled the Cardinals in the Wild Card Game last Wednesday. They will face a familiar foe in DeSclafani, whom they have roughed up for 22 runs over 27 innings this season in five starts. Buehler will be making his first career start on short rest.
