Boston won game one with strong hitting, but St. Louis won game two behind the solid pitching of rookie Michael Wacha. Game 3 sees Jake Peavy take the mound for Boston and Joe Kelly start for St. Louis. Peavy has pitched in two games this postseason, with a 0-1 record and an ugly 8.31 ERA. That loss was against Detroit when he gave up seven runs on five hits over three innings. During the regular season, he finished with a 4.17 ERA and a 12-5 record.
Kelly has thrown in three games this postseason, also posting a 0-1 record with a 4.41 ERA. That is down from his impressive 2.69 regular season ERA, finishing with a 10-5 record.
With both pitchers struggling this postseason, this game might see a higher score than usual and that always favors Boston. However, the home field advantage of St. Louis can’t be overlooked either. The Cardinals led the NL in scoring in their home at Busch Stadium in 2013.
