After 12 major-league seasons, Jake Peavy, the guy rumored to be coming to the Cubs more than four years ago, makes his first appearance in the World Series. He'd better have a better performance than he has in his previous postseason outings (four starts, 10.31 ERA), or the Red Sox will be in trouble.
Meanwhile, the Cardinals are 5-1 at home in the postseason and won their last seven regular-season home games (although, granted, three of those were a sweep of a clearly disinterested Cubs squad).
Here are the rest of the particulars for tonight's game.
Game 3 time: 7 p.m. CT. TV: Fox. Announcers: Joe Buck, Tim McCarver, Ken Rosenthal, Erin Andrews. Series tied 1-1.
