Game Overview

It might be a bit of overstatement to call the game 3 of the 2013 World Series a sure win for the Boston Red Sox after dropping the first last baseball game to the St Louis Cardinals.

Actually, the St. Louis Cardinals might be in deep trouble. Boston Red Sox won 21 of the past 25 World Series. If that wouldn’t be enough reasons to worry for the St. Louis Cardinals, the last time when the two teams met back in 2004, in the Fall Classic, Boston won against Cardinals in four games.

As we can see, the history is not on the side of St. Louis Cardinals. But they have the best pitcher in the postseason, Michael Wacha, and that is a good reason for the Cardinals to stay optimistic. On Thursday night Michael Wacha will face off the veteran John Lackey.

Boston Red Sox seemed to have a great chance to a 1-1 series tie after the Ortiz’s home run in the sixth inning of the game 2. However, The St. Louis Cardinals know how to turn a situation and never give up. They made a came back after the home run and won it 4-2.

Each team will be counting on a number of key players to deliver a good performance in the next game. The Boston Red Sox counted on Jake Peavy to have a great impact for the team, but unfortunately until now he struggled a bit during the postseason.
For the Cardinals, Carlos Beltran can turn things around, and if he is able to drive in at least one run, he might bring the victory for his team. The start for the hosting Cardinals will be left for Joe Kelly. The right-hander Joe Kelly did not have such a good performance in the postseason as in the regular season.

Under the National League rules the Red Sox will not be able to designate their hitter. Ortiz will change his normal role to first base from DH. That means that Mike Napoli, the regular first baseman, will have to stay on the bench and just wait for some pinch-hitting opportunities. Having Napoli on the bench will be a challenge for the Boston Red Sox. Napoli is a valuable player and he had a good overall performance during the postseason. Both Boston Red Sox and St. Louis Cardinals have balanced teams and this series will be very tight. Free Pick – Boston Red Sox
