NEW YORK -- The struggles of the Red Sox starting rotation in the postseason  -- combined, they've earned one October win and even that didn't come until Chris Sale won Game 1 last Friday night -- have been well-chronicled, so maybe it's not a bad thing that the Red Sox have decided to go with someone who has never before pitched in the postseason as their Game 3 starter Monday night.

Manager Alex Cora had the option of going with Rick Porcello, but went with Nathan Eovaldi instead.
