On an appearance on SIRIUS XM’s Mad Dog Radio, Colby Lewis said that he expects to start Game 3 of the World Series when the World Series shifts back to Arlington.
Um, I think it was, I don’t know if it was announced yesterday or not but I’m almost positive I’m going to be going in Game 3, so, first game back here. Yeah, it’s going to be a lot of fun. I mean, I don’t know, it’s just a situation where hopefully we can snag that first one with Cliff [Lee] going and, of course, C.J. [Wilson] has been awesome for us this year and I know he’s going to go out there and give us a quality start. Hopefully we can take two from them and come back here and take two out of three and finish it up.
It had been unknown if Wilson or Lewis would start Game 2 until now. Still, there has been no official announcement made by Ron Washington and the Rangers staff. If Wilson goes in Game 2, that means the Rangers will have their ALDS 1-2-3 lined up with Lee, Wilson and Lewis going in the first three games.
It has not been announced that Tommy Hunter will start Game 4 but he is expected to make his third postseason start, keeping Derek Holland in long relief out of the bullpen.
