Urquidy will start Game 2 of the World Series against Atlanta on Wednesday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Urquidy was awful in his lone start thus far this postseason, giving up six runs (five earned) while recording just five outs in Game 3 of the ALCS against Boston. He'll be moved ahead of Luis Garcia nonetheless, though that's not necessarily a vote of confidence in Urquidy. The Game 2 starter can be pulled early more easily, as Thursday's off day means the Astros will get to rest their bullpen after the game, while the Game 3 starter may be asked to provide more length with the teams scheduled to play on each of the following two days.
