Boston Red Sox vs St Louis Cardinals in Game 4 of the World Series 2013 takes place on Sunday night following a dramatic Game 3 that saw the Cardinals take the lead in the series for the first time after an obstruction call ended the game in the Cardinals' favor. Tonight's game will start at 8.15 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream (details below).
The starting pitchers for Game 4 in Busch Stadium will be Lance Lynn for St Louis, and Clay Buchholz for the Red Sox.
Lynn has made three postseason appearances so far for the Cardinals, including two starts. In those games he has gone 2-1 with a 5.40 ERA, and has been a little inconsistent and erratic at times for St Louis. He has also recorded a WHIP of 1.80 over 11 2/3rds innings.
Meanwhile, Clay Buchholz will be starting on the mound for the Red Sox. The right hander has started three games in the playoffs for Boston this season, and has a 5.40 ERA. He has struck out 15 batters, giving up five walks, and surrendering 19 hits, including three home runs throughout his 16 2/3rds innings.
It is likely that the two teams will use the bullpen a lot tonight. A similar tactic was used by both sides in Game 3, and it would appear things would head in a similar way tonight, as neither starting pitcher has worked more than six innings through their playoff appearances this year.
Buchholz is also still shaking off a niggling injury, and so that could limit his participation somewhat. But obviously things could depend on how well he does to see how long he will stay out on the mound tonight.
