Unlike the Dodgers, who named Yu Darvish their starting pitcher if the World Series goes to a Game 7 on Wednesday, Astros manager A.J. Hinch didn't name one prior to Tuesday's Game 6. Lance McCullers Jr. lines up to pitch Game 7, but Hinch said the right-hander could be available to close out Game 6, if needed. "I think it's a possibility," Hinch said. "I think all bets are off. You just try to win the game. I think saving things for the unknown is probably not the way to go. But obviously it starts with [Justin] Verlander. We'll see what he can give and how long he can be in the game. And the National League rules with pinch-hitting, does he get to pitch deep in the game or does the game situation dictate otherwise?
