Timely hitting has been the story of the Cardinals’ season, and they came up with those timely hits again on Thursday, with the team putting up three runs in the top of the seventh inning to go ahead for good. Matt Carpenter delivered the decisive hit, lifting a fly ball to left field with the bases loaded for a sac fly.

Pete Kozma came in to score, and when Craig Breslow’s throw to third base ended up in left field, John Jay followed behind him. The next man up was Carlos Beltran and he poked the ball into right field to score Daniel Descalso and add an insurance run that the team wouldn’t end up needing as Carlos Martinez and Trevor Rosenthal shut the door the rest of the way.

The Red Sox face a tough decision now that the series shifts to St. Louis, and the designated hitter comes out of the lineup, but manager John Farrell didn’t consider it a tough decision, announcing on Friday that David Ortiz would start at first base. Ortiz knocked out a two-run home run in Game 2 of the Series. Another change to the Red Sox lineup that was announced by Farrell on Friday was the switch from Jonny Gomes to Daniel Nava in left field. The loss of the D.H. also means Allen Craig comes out of the St. Louis lineup.  


Joe Kelly gets the nod for the Cardinals in this one. He’s actually been one of the few low points for the Cardinals in the postseason, posting a 4.41 ERA with a 1.47 WHIP. The Cardinals have lost two of his three starts in the postseason.

Jake Peavy hasn’t had a memorable postseason either, getting knocked out of his last postseason start after recording just nine outs. Peavy surrendered seven earned runs over three innings of work in a loss to Detroit. His first playoff start went a lot better, as he allowed only one earned run over 5 2/3 innings of work in a 3-1 win over Tampa Bay.

Kelly’s ERA was more than a full point higher at home than it was on the road during the regular season, and he didn’t have to face any opponents as explosive as the Boston lineup. Don’t be surprised if the Red Sox get to Kelly early and knock him out of the game, while Peavy enjoys a bounce back performance, being very comfortable in a National League park after many years with San Diego.

The Red Sox are 9-1 in their last 10 World Series games.

The play: Boston -102
