The Houston Astros were completely shut down by Ranger Suarez and the Philadelphia Phillies’ pitching staff in Game 3 of the 2022 World Series. They couldn’t even muster one extra-base hit in the 7-0 defeat, which marked the fourth time in Astros franchise history that they were blanked in a World Series game. But drastic changes are not coming for Game 4, which is scheduled to begin tonight at 8:03 p.m. ET from Citizens Bank Park.
Here is Houston’s lineup for this crucial contest:

Christian Vazquez gets his first start of this World Series, and Aledmys Diaz gets his second. Vazquez is 2-for-7 with a couple of doubles against Phillies starter Aaron Nola while Diaz is 0-for-8. Kyle Tucker has to be happy that Nola is on the mound tonight; he homered twice off of Nola in the series opener on Friday. Nola allowed six hits, five runs and five hard-hit balls over his 4.1 innings of work. That hard-hit quintet included Tucker’s two homers and a 104-mph double to Jeremy Pena.
