Phillies starting Syndergaard in Game 3, Astros countering with McCullers


The Philadelphia Phillies will have trade-deadline acquisition Noah Syndergaard on the mound when they host the Houston Astros in Game 3 of the World Series.

Phillies manager Rob Thomson announced his starting plans following Houston’s 5-2 win in Game 2 Sunday, which tied the series. The Phillies will go with Ranger Suarez in Game 4 after the fifth-year starter came out of the bullpen in Game 1.

Syndergaard was acquired by the Phillies from the Angels in the final moments before the Aug. 2 trade deadline. He posted a 5-2 record in seven regular season starts after the trade with a 4.12 ERA. In the playoffs, he has only made one start — three innings in Game 4 of the ALDS — and made two other bullpen appearances.

The Astros will counter with Lance McCullers Jr. in Game 3. The start will be a redemption of sorts for McCullers, who was unable to pitch in the 2021 World Series due to a forearm injury and didn’t return to the rotation until August. McCullers has made two starts in the post-season — six scoreless innings in Game 3 of the ALDS and five innings in the series-clinching win in the ALCS.

Fans can watch Game 3 of the World Series on Sportsnet Monday night with first pitch scheduled for 8 p.m. ET/ 5 p.m. PT.
