The Dodgers will start pitcher Ricky Nolasco in Game 4 of the NLCS, according to the LA Times.

Los Angeles manager Don Mattingly said before his team's Game 3 win that he would decide on the starter after the game. The skipper confirmed today that Nolasco would get the ball in Game 4 instead of Zack Greinke, who would have been on short rest.

Nolasco has not pitched since Sept. 25 after he was bumped from the rotation in the NLDS by Clayton Kershaw.
