World Series Game 3 Postponed, Phillies Name Ranger Suárez Starter
Game 3 of the World Series has been postponed due weather and has been rescheduled for Tuesday at 8:03 p.m.
With that, the remainder of the series, will push back by a day, meaning the teams will now play Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday in Philadelphia. They will have a travel day on Friday and play Game 6 and 7 in Houston if needed on Saturday and Sunday.
With the day off, the Philies have announced some changes to their pitching with Rob Thomson naming Ranger Suárez their Game 3 starter. Aaron Nola will get the ball on Wednesday in Game 4.
Suárez has been a key weapon in these playoff, being used as both a starter and out of the pen, allowing just two earned runs in 9 2/3 total innings this postseason. He came into a key spot in Game 1 to face Yordan Alvarez.
The original Game 3 starter, Noah Syndergaard will now likely bounce to Game 5 on Thursday with Kyle Gibson also an option. Zach Wheeler will pitch Game 6 on Saturday if needed.
The Astros are sticking with right-hander Lance McCullers Jr. and went with this lineup:
Kyle Schwarber (LF)
Rhys Hoskins (1B)
J.T. Realmuto (C)
Bryce Harper (DH)
Nick Castellanos (RF)
Alec Bohm (3B)
Bryson Stott (SS)
Jean Segura (2B)
Brandon Marsh (CF)
