World Series 2023 live score: Rangers vs. Diamondbacks updates, highlights, results from Game 4

The Diamondbacks have been branded the ‘Answerbacks’ for a reason. When they suffered a heartbreaking World Series Game 1 loss to the Rangers on Friday, they came right back 24 hours later and earned a resounding win. Can they do it again?

Arizona’s offense sputtered in Game 3, putting just one run on the board despite another strong performance by the bullpen. A two-run home run by Corey Seager was the difference, propelling Texas to its second win of the series.

The burning question entering Game 4 is how each manager will map out pitching plans. After Max Scherzer’s injury forced the Rangers to use Jon Gray in Game 3, it’ll be Andrew Heaney leading off what will be effectively a bullpen game for Texas.

For the Diamondbacks, there’s no doubt a bullpen game is in store. Reliever Joe Mantiply will serve as the opener, and a ‘pen that has been excellent throughout October will be asked to carry the load the rest of the way.

Arizona’s staff did catch a break hours before first pitch, as Rangers slugger Adolis Garcia was not included in the starting lineup after suffering an injury to his side in Game 3.

While Garcia’s injury might not be as serious as it initially appeared, the ALCS MVP isn’t ready to suit up for Game 4 — at least not for the start of it. If the Rangers can manage a win without him, though, they will sit just one victory away from their first championship.

8:35 p.m. WILD PITCH — Jung scores on a ball that gets away from Moreno! Castro’s pitch in the dirt took a bad bounce, and there was no play at the plate. The Rangers lead early.

7:55 p.m. — Jon Rahm and Michael Phelps are among the stars in attendance at Chase Field.

7:35 p.m. — For all of the Rangers’ losses, a win tonight with Nathan Eovaldi and Jordan Montgomery in line to start the next two games would put Texas in a terrific position.
