“On paper, this projects as a low-scoring game. The Cards are batting just .235 as a team this series. The Red Sox are even worse at .189.”
The Sox’ pitcher is Jon Lester; the Cardinals’ pitcher is Adam Wainwright.
In two World Series starts, Lester has yet to allow a run, including pitching 7 2/3 shutout innings against the Cards in Game 1.
Wainwright . . . struggled in the opener, allowing five runs (three earned) in five innings.
