LOS ANGELES (AP) Lance McCullers Jr. headed into Game 6 of the World Series not knowing whether he would be attempting to close out a championship on Tuesday night or starting Game 7 one night later.
If anybody could handle the uncertainty amid such high stakes, it's Houston's versatile right-hander. McCullers has already been a resilient contributor to the Astros' remarkable season, and they're likely to need him one more time.
"I think all bets are off," Houston manager A.J. Hinch said before Game 6 when asked what role McCullers would fill over the next 24 hours. "You just try to win the game. I think saving things for the unknown is probably not the way to go."
