The Astros Will Start Rookie Jose Urquidy In Game 4

The Houston Astros got their first win of the World Series in game 3 on the road. Astros manager AJ Hinch has announced he is going with rookie pitcher Jose Urquidy to start game 4 of the World Series. 

Urquidy has a 2.08 ERA with 4.1 innings pitched in the 2019 playoffs. Hinch has only used Jose Urquidy in the 2019 postseason out of the bullpen. 

"Jose Urquidy will start, he can go as long as he's good. I don't have a predetermined plan on how many innings, how many pitches. It's Game 4 of the World Series, all things are being considered. Jose gets the ball." - AJ Hinch
If the Astro can get the same production they got out of their bullpen in game 3, they will only need 4 innings out of Jose Urquidy. Zack Greinke only gave up 1 run and he was pulled in the 5th inning.
