Philadelphia Phillies manager Charlie Manuel has named right-handed pitcher Pedro Martinez his starter for game three of the NLDS against the Rockies. UK alum and Franklin-Simpson graduate Joe Blanton had been rumored a candidate for the start, but appeared in relief in game two. No starter has been named for game four yet, so Blanton may still start that game.
