2017 World Series: Astros set their starting pitchers for Games 3 and 4, sort of
Charlie Morton will start either Game 3 or 4
Tuesday night, when the 2017 World Series begins at Dodger Stadium, the Dodgers will have Clayton Kershaw on the mound while the Astros counter with Dallas Keuchel. Rich Hill and Justin Verlander will be the pitching matchup in Game 2.
On Monday, Astros skipper A.J. Hinch announced his starters for Games 3 and 4, though only somewhat.
Charlie Morton and Lance McCullers combined to hold the Yankees to three hits in Houston's shutout win in Game 7 of the ALCS on Saturday. Morton started and threw five innings. McCullers came out of the bullpen for an old school four-inning save.
It should be noted, however, Hinch could still use McCullers in relief in Game 1 or 2, then start him in Game 4 depending on his relief workload. One inning in Game 1 or 2 wouldn't necessarily rule him out for Game 4. The potential for McCullers to pitch in relief in Game 1 or 2 is likely why Hinch won't commit to a Game 3 starter just yet.
