After another dominant Red Sox effort on the mound in Game Five, the Cardinals bats will have to wake up if they want to win the title.
In any seven-game series, Game Three is perhaps the most pivotal one. Who will win it on Saturday?
The Boston Red Sox had not lost in the World Series since Game Seven of the 1986 World Series, after sweeping in both 2004 and 2007.
The Tigers chased Jake Peavy early on their way to a 7-3 win to even the ALCS at 2-2.
It wasn’t easy, and the game itself was anything but conventional, but the Red Sox earned a hard-fought victory in Game 4 of the ALDS to earn a trip to the ALCS.
They won’t know who they are playing until later tonight, but Red Sox manager John Farrell announced his rotation for the ALDS on Wednesday.
The Oakland A’s could emerge as a contender for Chicago White Sox star right-hander Jake Peavy in a suprise move as Major League Baseball’s trade-deadline nears, according to people who have spoken to A’s general manager Billy Beane.
