The starting pitcher is who?

Astros: McCullers will still start Game 3 despite Monday’s delay, Astros manager Dusty Baker before the start of the game Announce. McCullers (0-0, 2.45 ERA this playoffs) will make his third start in the 2022 playoffs, with victories in the ALDS and ALCS.

York gave up 4 runs (3 won) in 5 innings. It will be his first start in the World Series since 2017, when he started Game 7 against the Dodgers and lasted 2 1/3 innings in Houston’s title race.

Phillies: Due to Monday’s postponement, the Phillies, as originally planned, will move to Rangers Suarez instead of Noah Sindgard in Game 3. Aaron Nola will start Game 4 on Wednesday — also with regular breaks. Head coach Rob Thomson noted that a reshuffled rotation would allow Suarez to start a potential Game 7 with a regular break if needed. As for Syndegard, Thomson said the club will wait to see if the veteran right-hander needs to leave the bullpen in Game 3 or 4 before deciding whether he will start Game 5. Kyle Gibson will likely get a Game 5 nod if Syndergard is used to clear the next two games. Regardless, Zach Wheeler will still be the starter for Game 6 — and benefit from an extra day off.
