CHICAGO - The Chicago White Sox will start Dylan Cease in Game 3 of their AL Division Series against the Houston Astros on Sunday, hoping he can help the AL Central champions avoid a sweep.
Manager Tony La Russa confirmed the 25-year-old right-hander will get the ball when the series shifts to Chicago.
Cease tied Carlos Rodon for the team lead in wins while going 13-7 with a 3.91 ERA in 32 starts.
La Russa also said Rodon might pitch a potential Game 4 on Monday after being limited down the regular-season stretch because of shoulder soreness and fatigue.
