Porcello starts ALDS Game 4 if Bosox avoid sweep 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.
