World Series schedule 2013 news has the St. Louis Cardinals clinching a spot after dominating the LA Dodgers. The World Series schedule will begin with Game 1 next Wednesday (Oct. 23) at the home field of the American League champion. On Friday night (Oct. 18), the Cardinals came through in a big way on offense, scoring four runs in the third inning and then five more in the fifth inning to take a 9-0 lead over the Dodgers.
With Clayton Kershaw on the mound, this was supposed to be a game that the Dodgers could win and force the series to a Game 7. Instead, it was rookie Michael Wacha who was again the best pitcher on the field for the Cardinals. He gave up only two hits in the first six innings, putting the Cardinals in the perfect position to clinch the NLCS at home. Anyone watching the game saw just how supportive those Cardinals fans can be as well.
Because the American League won the All-Star Game this season, the winner of the ALCS will host Games 1 and 2 of the 2013 World Series schedule. It means the St. Louis Cardinals have to wait to find out if they will be heading to play the Boston Red Sox or Detroit Tigers next. After Game 1 on Oct. 23, Game 2 is on Oct. 24. Both are at 7:30 p.m. ET on FOX. After that, the two teams travel to St. Louis for Game 3 on Saturday (Oct. 26) at 7:30 p.m. ET, Game 5 on Sunday (Oct. 27) at 8 p.m. ET, and Game 5 on Monday (Oct. 28) at 7:30 p.m. ET.
Should further games be needed, Game 6 will be hosted by the AL champion on Oct. 30 at 7:30 p.m. ET, followed by Game 7 on Oct. 31 at 7:30 p.m. ET. All games will be on FOX. While there are still three more innings in Game 6 of the NLCS left, it appears that the Cardinals are about to start celebrating. Should the LA Dodgers mount a miraculous comeback, Game 7 of the NLCS is Saturday night (Oct. 19) at 8:30 p.m. ET.
