How did we get here?
After losing 10-3 on Monday, the Astros had a chance to close things out on Tuesday but Tampa Bay had different ideas.
The Rays beat the Astros 4-1 on Tuesday to even their AL Division Series at two games apiece.
Ryan Yarbrough and five other pitchers combined on a six-hitter for Tampa Bay. Cy Young Award winner Blake Snell came out of the bullpen for his first career relief appearance, holding off Houston in the ninth inning to earn the save.
Verlander, starting on short rest after dominating the wild-card Rays in Game 1, looked uncomfortable on the mound and was pulled in the fourth after giving up four runs.
