The 2013 MLB World Series live stream and televised schedule brings Game 2 to the spotlight on Thursday night, as the Red Sox look to jump out to a 2-0 lead, and the Cardinals look to even things up at Fenway. Boston already jumped out to a 1-0 series lead, behind an 8-1 eruption in Game 1, which featured fielding mistakes and miscues on the part of St. Louis. The latest Cardinals vs. Red Sox live stream and TV game arrives on Thursday via FOX and MLB's subscription service.
According to ESPN.com, Michael Wacha will get the start for St. Louis, and the 22-year-old pitcher has been definitely proving his worth in the postseason. Wacha was instrumental in wins over Pittsburgh and Los Angeles which helped the Cardinals to get to the World Series. Wacha shut out the Dodgers in Game 5 of the NLCS, en route to a 9-0 World Series berth-clinching win. However, Wacha has been humble about it all, as he takes in his first postseason experiences. He recently told the media:
"I'm just trying not to think too much about it, just trying to approach every game the same, trying not to get too caught up in the moment. I'm sure after the season, I'll be able to look back and think about, 'Hey, I pitched in the World Series,' and that kind of stuff. So, you know, right now just trying to get focused on the next start coming up and just go from there."
Boston will reportedly start the 2-0 John Lackey who has a 3.00 ERA in the postseason. Lackey has been with the Red Sox for four years now, and has endured some criticisms during that time. Lackey missed the 2012 season due to Tommy John surgery. He was 10-13 for this past season with 29 starts and a 3.52 ERA. However, he struck out eight batters in six innings when the Red Sox took down the Tigers in Game 3 of the ALCS, 1-0.
Lackey, who will be facing St. Louis for the first time in his career, told reporters:
"I'm not really concerned about some of that outside stuff. I know who I was in the clubhouse and where I stood with the guys in the clubhouse. That means more to me than anything. You want to be on a good team. You want to try to help out the boys. You want to pull your weight. And that's been fun this year."
Odds makers have listed Boston as the favorites tonight, with odds as high as -120 on the money line. The underdog Cardinals are priced at +100 to +110 at various sports books, with the over/under generally set at 7 runs for the game. Weather reports indicate the outside temperature at game time around 47 degrees, with partly cloudy skies. Carlos Beltran has been listed as questionable for tonight's game, but will likely play.
Thursday night's Game 2 between the Cardinals and Red Sox gets started at 8:07 p.m. EST. Television coverage is available nationally on cable or satellite TV services via FOX.
