Porcello to start Game 4 if Red Sox win Game 3 vs. Indians


BOSTON (AP) — The Boston Red Sox will start Rick Porcello in Game 4 of their AL Division Series against the Cleveland Indians — if they can make it that far.

Manager John Farrell confirmed the decision on Monday before his team tried to extend the best-of-five series with a victory in Game 3.

Eduardo Rodriguez had been scheduled to start Game 4. But Sunday’s rainout allows the Red Sox to bring back Porcello, a 22-game winner, on the usual four days of rest.
