Charlie Morton Gets The Nod For Game 3 Of World Series

Tampa Bay Rays starting pitcher Charlie Morton, who is 5-0 in five playoff starts with the team, will get the ball for Game 3 of the World Series against the Dodgers on Friday. Morton's velocity was down during the regular season, but he's been great in the postseason. The right-hander threw 5 2/3 scoreless innings in just 66 pitches in Game 7 of the American League Championship Series against the Astros. The 36-year-old is 3-0 with a 0.57 ERA in three playoff starts this year, with opposing hitters sporting just a .474 OPS against him. Morton helped beat the Dodgers in Game 7 of the World Series with the Astros back in 2017. The playoff experience and success is there, but he's also facing a historically stacked Dodgers lineup, making him a risk/reward DFS choice.
