After splitting the first two game of the World Series at Fenway Park, the Boston Red Sox and St. Louis Cardinals look to continue the battle for baseball supremacy in St. Louis. For the Red Sox, their game plan for game 3 has not gone exactly like it was supposed to. After it was revealed that Clay Buchholz was suffering from shoulder fatigue, the Red Sox decided to give Jake Peavy the start in Game 3. The 32 year old righty is coming off a dreadful start against the Detroit Tigers in game 4 of the ALCS in which he allowed 7 runs over just 3 innings pitched. But if there's one thing that Red Sox fans can hang their hopes on with Peavy it's his ability to not let losses linger. During the regular season, Peavy was able to bounce back from a loss with a win and/or a quality start following 3 of his 5 losses. In contrast to the veteran, Jake Peavy, St. Louis will send out another one of their young arms, Joe Kelly. The 25 year old has enjoyed an effective playoff run with the ...

ST. LOUIS -- Jake Peavy could have been starting Game 3 of the World Series for the home team. Dealt from the Chicago White Sox to Boston as part of a three-team trade in July, Peavy was being pursued by the Cardinals last summer.

Jake Peavy, Clay Buchholz Must Answer Lingering Questions in St. Louis for Red Sox to Regain Control in Series (Podcast)

With two World Series games in the books, the Red Sox and Cardinals are in a dead heat. Poor fielding doomed the Cards in Game 1, but it was Boston’s defensive lapses in Game 2 that allowed the visitors to knot up the series at one apiece. Now, the teams will head to Busch Stadium for three games under National League rules, which will certainly result in a number of lineup adjustments...

Game 4 Tale of the Tape: Clay Buchholz vs. Lance Lynn

Game 4 of the 2013 World Series is a must win for the Boston Red Sox after Saturday night's "obstruction-gate" loss. With the series hanging in the balance, Boston will turn to Clay Buchholz. It's been a question all week whether Buchholz would be good to go with "shoulder weakness." Manager John Farrell's leash will likely be short. The St.Louis...

Buchholz hoping injury won’t hinder him in Game 4

Clay Buchholz is banking that his right shoulder won’t be a problem on Sunday. “It’s going to be my first World Series experience being on the field,” said the Red Sox right-hander, who will be opposed by Lance Lynn in Game 4, with Boston trailing St. Louis two games to one after the Cardinals’ 5-4 win in Game 3 Saturday night. “Just the environment, the crowd, the adrenaline...

The Clay Buchholz Data We All Could’ve Guessed

I’d like to share something with you from last Saturday’s ALCS Game 6. We all know now how that game turned out, but in the top of the sixth the eventual result was still a mystery, and the Red Sox were clinging to a tenuous lead. Given that the score was so close, every pitch was important, and when Clay Buchholz got to two strikes against Miguel Cabrera, a fan in the stands...

Preview: Cards look to Lynn in Game 4, chase commanding 3-1 lead

Clay Buchholz may not be fully healthy, but the way he sees it, no player is by the time the World Series rolls around. "I've said it a couple of times this year -- I don't think anybody, especially at this time of the season, is 100 percent." Boston manager John Farrell hopes his Game 4 starter can muster a solid performance despite a bum right shoulder Sunday...

Red Sox’ Clay Buchholz may not go deep in Game 4 due to shoulder

Boston Red Sox manager John Farrell made the decision to start Clay Buchholz in Game 4 on Sunday night, but it now appears that he will also need his bullpen ready at a moment’s notice. In his Game 4 preview, MLB.com’s Paul Hagan explains that Farrell does not expect his right-hander to go deep into the game. Even if he pitches well, Buchholz may have a short leash because...

MLB Game Picks - Sunday: October 27, 2013

Well...that was different. The St. Louis Cardinals won Game 3 of the World Series in about as unlikely a fashion as anything most people will ever see in their lifetimes. An obstruction call at third base ended it after Jarrod Saltalamacchia's throw bounced off the tip of Will Middlebrook's glove, off Allen Craig and into the left field foul grounds. I believe the call...

Koji Uehara Really Excited to Hug Clay Buchholz After Red Sox’ Game 4 Win in St. Louis (Video)

Koji Uehara is an excitable man, as evidenced by his love for the high-five, which has been documented over and over again this season.

Red Sox Are 'Hit To Be Tied', Take Game 4, 4-2

(Photo by Elsa/Getty Images)There were so many questions before Game Four—could Clay Buchholz give the team anything?; could the moribund offense come alive?; could the Red Sox wrest home-field advantage back by winning one game in St. Louis? And then, it all cam down to Shane Victorino's aching back. Because of that, Jonny Gomes was the surprise starter in left and all he...

The Boston Red Sox beat the St Louis Cardinals 4-2 in Game 4 of the World Series, tying the series at two games apiece.

And while Buchholz did only last four innings for the Sox, he pitched relatively well. In his four innings of work, Buchholz allowed just...
