LEADING OFF: Curious pitching strategy in playoffs all over


By The Associated Press

In a postseason already marked by curious pitching strategy, Julio Urías returns to his regular role in the rotation when the Los Angeles Dodgers play Atlanta in Game 4 of the NL Championship Series. Braves manager Brian Snitker says he’ll go with a bullpen game Wednesday with his team leading the series 2-1. Urías led the majors with 20 wins this season while pitching 32 times, all as a starter.

Framber Valdez will start for Houston against Chris Sale.
