Astros’ Lance McCullers will start Game 4 of ALCS - Houston Chronicle

Hinch chose McCullers over Brad Peacock, who had the superior regular season on the whole. Essentially, the Astros are betting on McCullers’ upside. Peacock also has experience out of the bullpen and can be the first pitcher warm if McCullers encounters trouble.
“He’s a really good pitcher,” Hinch said when asked about McCullers. “He’s got really electrifying stuff, some of the best stuff in the big leagues.
“Getting him in a normal routine, normal warmup into the game, big-time breaking ball, the whole league knows it, he’s got a really good fastball. He had a really good bullpen (session) in between his last outing and the next outing (Tuesday).”
