At the home of the Arizona Diamondbacks, the Texas Rangers took a 2-1 lead and now have the opportunity to leave the World Series practically settled in a fourth game where the offenses are expected to show up.
The last game ended 3-1 for the Rangers, with a masterful performance by all their pitchers, even though Max Scherzer only pitched three innings.

Where Can I Watch?
Why Bet on Diamondbacks?
The Arizona Diamondbacks have a chance to win the next two games at home and go to Arlington with the lead in the World Series, but for that, they need to end their losing streak.
In the first game at Chase Field, they lost 3-1 against the Texas Rangers, hitting only six hits and scoring one run. This confirms their drought at home, as they have lost the last four games.
Arizona has very little to look forward to if they do not respect their home, and if they do not raise their level, they could lose the World Series in front of their home fans.
That is why they need Corbin Carroll not to have another night like the one in the third game, where he did not give up a hit. In addition, they must hope that Ketel Marte extends his streak of 19 games batting at least one hit and above all that Christian Walker and Tommy Pham show the power they are known for.
Manager Torey Lovullo designated experienced left-hander Joe Mantiply as his starter for the fourth game. This postseason he has a 2-0 record with a 4.26 ERA, however, keep in mind that he has only pitched 6.1 innings. He will surely be an opener.
Why Bet on the Rangers?
The Texas Rangers have already recovered from the loss they suffered in game two and, in the worst-case scenario, are assured of returning home to define the World Series.
Although Max Scherzer pitched only three innings, the Texas Rangers defeated Arizona 3-1 in the third game, thanks to a home run by Corey Seager in the third inning that towed Marcus Semien.
Precisely, second baseman Semien is awakening offensively, as he has given at least one hit in every game of the ‘Fall Classic’ and already has an RBI.
But there is no doubt that the Rangers offense depends on what Seager, Cuban Adolis Garcia, and young Evan Carter can do. Between them, they have 38 RBIs and 14 home runs.
Manager Bruce Bochy chose left-hander Andrew Heaney to pitch at Chase Field. His postseason work records four games, but only two starts, with a poor 6.00 ERA.
