Alex Cora waited until after Game 2 of the World Series to name his Game 3 starter, but he’s made his decision.
Rick Porcello will get the ball for the Boston Red Sox in Game 3 on Friday and will be opposed by Los Angeles Dodgers right-hander Walker Buehler.
Porcello is 1-0 in two starts this postseason. He’s pitched two more times as a reliever, and the Red Sox have won every game in which he’s appeared.
While some suggest Buehler is surpassing Clayton Kershaw as the Dodgers’ top pitcher, the 24-year-old is 0-1 with a 5.40 ERA in three starts this postseason.
