WORLD SERIES GAME 3: BOSTON RED SOX AT ST. LOUIS CARDINALS

Where: Busch Stadium, St. Louis, MO
Gametime: 7:30 p.m.
TV: FOX
Radio: ESPN Radio
Weather: Clear, 49 degrees, wind 7 mph
Starting pitchers: BOS – Jake Peavy (12-5, 4.17) / STL – Joe Kelly (10-5 2.69)

After bouncing back to even the series in Game 2, the Cardinals now hold home field advantage as the Fall Classic shifts to Busch Stadium in St. Louis. The Cards are 5-1 there in the 2013 postseason and have won 26 of their last 32 games at home overall.

Adding to fact the Cardinals will be home is the lineup adjustment by the Red Sox to compensate for National League rules. David Ortiz will now grab a glove and man first while Mike Napoli will start the game on the bench. Jake Peavy will also have to bat after spending the last five years of his career in the American League. He does, however, have three postseason at-bats under his belt from his days with the San Diego Padres.
