St. Louis Bound
The World Series shifts from Boston to St. Louis for the weekend and with the series tied at 1-1, one team can make a serious move towards a championship.
Game 3 is tonight at Busch Stadium (8:07 p.m.) and the Red Sox will send Jake Peavy to the hill to square off against Joe Kelly of the Cardinals. Both pitchers have struggled at times during the postseason as Peavy is 0-1 with an 8.31 ERA and Kelly is 0-1 with a 4.41 ERA.
Game 4 is Sunday night (8:15 p.m.) and Clay Buchholz is tentatively scheduled to pitch for the Red Sox against Lance Lynn of the Padres. Buchholz, however, may miss the start with an injury, Felix Doubront will most likely take his place if Buchholz can not go.
Game 5 is Monday night (8:07 p.m.) and will feature a pitching rematch from Game 1 as Sox ace Jon Lester will face off against Cards ace Adam Wainwright. The Sox took an 8-1 win in Game 1 Wednesday with this same pitching matchup.
Wednesday’s sports centerpiece incorrectly stated that last Friday night’s Soccer Night at Newell, featuring a pair of New England Revolution players, incorrectly stated that the event was put on by Moore Soccer Academy. The event was actually put on by Fishermen Youth Soccer in collaboration with the Gloucester High School soccer program.
Could we see a completely healthy Patriots offense on Sunday when the Miami Dolphins visit Gillette Stadium?
If the positive reports on the health of Danny Amendola are true we will see the Pats offense completely intact for the first time this season.
Amendola, who did not play against the Jets last week after suffering a concussion against the Saints, has been practicing all week and told reporters on Friday that he is ready to go against Miami on Sunday. Amendola will join Rob Gronkowski on the field for the first time this season, which has to be music to Tom Brady’s ears.
