Nothing is official just yet, but Chris Sale's chances of starting Game 5 are at least looking more promising.
Following the Red Sox' win over the Astros in Game 3, Cora informed reporters that Sale told him he would be "good enough" to take the mound. He will throw a bullpen session on Wednesday before any decision is made.

Sale was hospitalized Sunday, a day after his Game 1 start, with a stomach illness. The Red Sox ace rejoined the team in Houston on Tuesday.
