Lance McCullers Jr., will start for the Astros in Game 3 of the World Series on Friday night at Minute Maid Park and Charlie Morton will start Game 4 on Saturday night, Astros manager A.J. Hinch said Wednesday. McCullers, who will oppose ex-Texas Rangers righthander Yu Darvish, pitched six innings of one-run ball against the Yankees in his only previous start of this postseason. Overall, the 24-year-old righthander has a 2.08 ERA in 13 innings in these playoffs. Morton, who will oppose lefthander Alex Wood, has made three starts this postseason. He has a 6.23 ERA in 13 innings, a number somewhat skewed by the seven earned runs he was charged with in his ALCS Game 3 start at Yankee Stadium.
