When: Busch Stadium, St Louis
Through two World Series games between the Cardinals and Red Sox, each has notched a victory. So now the series shifts to the city of the Arch, St. Louis.
In Game 3 — which will take place Saturday at Busch Stadium — the pitching matchup pits Jake Peavy of the Red Sox against Joe Kelly for the home Cardinals.
The 25-year-old right-hander Kelly was 10-5 with a 2.69 ERA in the regular season. As a starter, though, he was far better, going 9-3 with a 2.28 ERA in 15 starts.
Surprisingly, Kelly was actually much worse at home (3.29 ERA) than on the road (2.07). He was excellent after the All-Star break, too, going 9-2 with a 1.91 ERA.
Peavy went 12-5 with a 4.17 ERA this season for the White Sox and Red Sox. He was mostly better after the trade to Boston, but only marginally so.
On the road this season, Peavy was bad. There’s really no sugarcoating it. He had a 5.27 ERA and 1.28 WHIP in 14 regular season road starts.
He wasn’t bad in Tampa Bay for his ALDS start, but he returned to Bad Jake on the road in the ALCS against the Tigers, coughing up seven runs on five hits and three walks in just three innings of work.
In all, the guess is that we will see a high-scoring shootout in game three of the series.
