We already knew that Chris Sale will pitch for the Red Sox in Game 1. Now Alex Cora has met with the press and officially announced that David Price will start Game 2 of the World Series against the Dodgers on Wednesday.

Price tossed six scoreless innings in his Game 5 start against the Astros last week to pitch the Red Sox into the World Series, relying heavily on his changeup. Some people wondered if Price might be held until Game 3 where he’d be guaranteed the warmer temperatures of Dodger Stadium, but really, wouldn’t everyone prefer that?

Game 3’s starter is still up in he air. It will either be Rick Porcello or Nathan Eovaldi, but given that each of them have been used in relief at various times this postseason, Cora will likely wait to see who will be the fresher come Friday.
