The Atlanta Braves will try to extend their home winning streak Saturday night when they face the Houston Astros in Game 4 of the World Series. Atlanta took a 2-1 lead in the series Friday night with a 2-0 win in Game 3. The Braves will go with a bullpen game in Game 4 with lefty Dylan Lee making his first career start as the opener. Houston will go with veteran righty Zack Greinke.

The Braves will make a couple of changes to their lineup for Game 4. Joc Pederson replaces Jorge Soler in right and will hit fifth. Travis d’Arnaud moves up to the sixth spot in the order. Adam Duvall will hit seventh and will be in center field.

The Astros have a new look as well. Dusty Baker will hit pitcher Zack Greinke in the eighth spot with Martin Maldonado hitting ninth. Yordan Alvarez will get another start in left field with Kyle Tucker in center and Michael Brantley in right.

Game 4 is scheduled to begin at 8:09 p.m. ET and can be seen on FOX.
