Austin Meadows leading off for Rays Game 4 versus Astros

Tampa Bay Rays outfielder Austin Meadows is leading off Game 4 of the American League Division Series against right-hander Justin Verlander and the Houston Astros.

What It Means:

Meadows hit a 2-run double and scored a run out of the two-hole in Monday's 10-3 Game 3 win over the Astros. He's in the leadoff spot Tuesday in place of Yandy Diaz (foot). Tommy Pham, Ji-Man Choi, Avisail Garcia, Brandon Lowe, and Travis d'Arnaud are lined up 2-6 after also moving up a spot in the lineup.
