August 6: Red Sox (49-63) @ Cardinals (60-51)
All the intrigue tonight is on the pitching matchup, which features best buddies Joe Kelly and Shelby Miller as opponents for the first time in their career. Both members of the 2009 Draft class, Kelly and Miller made the climb through the Cardinals’ system together, often living together as roommates along the way. For more on the matchup and their thoughts about it, you can read the full game preview.
Not much else in the way of important pregame news. The lineup is unchanged from Tuesday, when the Cardinals struck for a second straight come-from-behind win. The club is 3-1 on this homestand and has won four of five since the Trade Deadline.
For those of you out-of-market folks, a reminder that tonight’s game will be shown on ESPN in addition to FOX Sports Midwest.
