The Boston Red Sox and the St. Louis Cardinals will square off in a crucial game three of the Fall Classic, when the World Series travels to Busch stadium tied at one a piece this Saturday at 8:07 PM ET.
St. Louis rookie pitcher Michael Wacha took game two of the series and posted his fourth win in four postseason games played. He has been outstanding and somehow knows how to handle the most complicated situations despite he’s only 22 years old.
The win by the Cards cut a nine game winning streak for Boston in World Series games dating the 2004 matchup.
Joe Kelly will start for the Cardinals on Saturday. He’s 0-1 in this postseason after three starts with a 4.41 ERA and a 1.47 WHIP. “Well, we love playing here at Busch Stadium. Like I said, it’s a sea of red,” Kelly said.
For Boston, the responsibility will be on Jake Peavy, who like Kelly will make his debut in the Fall Classic. He’s 0-1 after two starts with an 8.31 ERA during this postseason.
“This is what I’ve lived for my whole life — my whole baseball career, I should say,” Peavy said. “I’m as prepared as I’ll ever be — physically, mentally.”
According to the World Series Odds Kelly is the favorite to get the win in the moneyline listed -110; Peavy is +100 and the runs total was set at 7.5 for game three.
