@   Gametime: Thursday 8:07 | Fenway Park | FOX/WEEI +7 Run differential in WS Game 2 Matchup: Michael Wacha, RHP  2013: 4-1, 2.78 ERA, 1.098 WHIP | 2013 Postseason: 3-0, 0.43 ERA, 0.571 WHIP John Lackey, RHP  2013: 10-13, 3.52 ERA, 1.157 WHIP | 2013 Postseason: 2-0, 3.00 ERA, 1.167 WHIP Career vs. Sox: N/A Career vs. Cardinals: N/A 2013 vs. AL: 0-1, 2.25 ERA, 0.833 WHIP 2013 vs. NL: 2-3, 3.09 ERA, 0.971 WHIP Last outing against the Sox:  N/A Last outing against the Cardinals: N/A  LINEUPS:               To be updated shortly                                                                               Last game: The Sox cashed in on some costly St. Louis errors, and hit nearly every good pitch to take a 1-0 lead with the 8-1 victory, yesterday. No need to refresh everyones mind, it is pretty fresh. Which Cardinal(s) to watch out for: Michael Wacha A young righty, with a very strong arm, who has everything working for him this postseason. Wacha has only surrendered 8 hits and 1 run in 21 innings this postseason. Not many runners have reached base with that 0.571 WHIP, and those who have reached, have been stranded. Makes Wainwright look like a pile of ****. I'm not saying the Sox won't be able to hit Wacha, they will just have a tougher time tonight than last night. Key to Sox victory: John Lackey repeating his last outing Lackey pitched the best outing of his Red sox career in game 3. Maybe make it a clean 7 innings? That could be asking too much. Another 6+ inning, 4 hit, no run outing will be just fine. Prediction This game is going to be a *****. John Lackey is going to battle and keep the score low, and so will Wacha. The Sox will get to the Cardinals' bullpen late in the game and work some late-inning magic to pull out a 3-2 victory.
