In tonight's World Series 2013 Game 2 schedule, the Cardinals try to even thins up at one win apiece with the Red Sox, in a live stream MLB online WS showdown from Fenway Park in Beantown.
Last night, the (1-0) Boston Red Sox took care of business at home against the (0-1) St. Louis Cardinals, on the strength of yet another quality start by LHP Jon Lester (7.2 IP, 5 hits, 0 runs, 1 walk, 8 strikeouts, 0.00 ERA).
According to an Oct. 24 MLB report, Cards skipper Mike Matheny will hand the ball to undefeated RHP Michael Wacha (MLB Postseason 2013: 3-0, 0.43 ERA) tonight, in hopes that the rookie sensation embraces the role of stopper.
Wacha hopes his microscopic earned-run-average holds up versus a Boston offense that was on fire in the opener (8 hits, 8 runs, 8 RBI in 33 at-bats).
First pitch for Game 2 of this best-of-seven World Series 2013 is scheduled for 8:07 p.m. EST (7:07 p.m. CST), broadcasting live on FOX.

For the reigning American League champs, first-year manager John Farrell will try and deal the Cards a devastating blow, sending battle-tested RHP John Lackey (MLB Postseason 2013: 2-0, 3.00 ERA) to toe the Fenway rubber this evening.
Boston comes in feeling very confident about its chances to take a 2-0 lead to Busch Stadium, especially with a fresh bullpen available thanks to Lester’s 7.2 innings of shutout ball last night.
It comes as no coincidence that World Series 2013 oddsmakers agree, listing the BoSox [-116] as favorites in Game 2 over the STL Cards [+106].
The OVER/UNDER for this pivotal game is set at a combined total of 7 runs and alternate run spreads have the visiting team at +1½ [-190] and the home squad at -1½ [+165].
