Cristian Javier picks up the win as Houston advances to ALCS on Thursday
Cristian Javier picked up the win in relief on Thursday when he allowed three hits with four strikeouts over 2 1/3 innings as the Astros out-slugged the A's 11-6 in Game 4 of the ALDS.
Javier entered the game in the sixth inning with the score tied up at 4-4. He kept the Oakland offense off the board over 2 1/3 innings pitched, only allowing three hits and whiffing four. The Houston offense broke the game open when he was still the pitcher of record so he able to earn his first second win of the postseason. It's unclear how Javier will be used in the best-of-seven ALCS but it wouldn't be surprising if he stayed in the bullpen as he's been their most consistent pitcher in relief during the playoffs.
