Red Sox vie for season series sweep of Cardinals

According to STATS
According to STATS

St. Louis Cardinals at Boston Red Sox

  1. The Cardinals dropped a 6-3 home decision to the Braves on Sunday, snapping their season-high eight-game win streak in the process. St. Louis is 28-17 in its last 45 contests -- second best in the majors since June 25 (Dodgers are 33-8).
  2. Boston lost, 7-3, in a make-up game against the Indians last night at Fenway Park, snapping its season-high six-game home win streak with the setback. Including three solo shots last night, the Red Sox have gone deep 19 times in 11 games this month -- tied for third most in the AL.
  3. The Red Sox swept two from the Cardinals in these clubs' first meeting of the season at Busch Stadium (May 16-17). St. Louis and Boston have played two all-time regular-season series at Fenway Park, and the Cards have taken both by the count of 2-1.
  4. Mike Leake allowed five runs (four earned) in 5.0 IP last Wednesday against the Royals, but the Cardinals' offense bailed him out, and he received a no-decision for his efforts. Leake is 0-1 with a 4.26 ERA in three career starts against the Red Sox.
  5. Rick Porcello went 6.0 innings and allowed two runs (both earned), last Wednesday against the Rays, garnering his second straight victory for the first time of the season. Porcello is 1-1 with a 3.38 ERA in three career starts vs. the Cardinals.
  6. Eduardo Nunez went 3-for-5 last night against the Indians, and is now batting .382 with four homers and 12 RBI in 15 games since the Red Sox acquired him from the Giants. Nunez' three-hit game on Monday night was his fifth in a Boston uniform -- tied for most of any MLB player since July 28.

BOSTON -- Back in May, Boston's Eduardo Rodriguez and St. Louis' Lance Lynn faced each other when the Red Sox and Cardinals squared off at Busch Stadium in the first of four games this year between the old World Series rivals.

On Wednesday night, the pitchers face each other again when the teams meet in the second contest of the two-game Boston portion of the season series.

Lynn looks to continue his recent pitching spurt, while Rodriguez again seeks for his first victory since coming off the disabled list after recovering from his latest knee injury.

Lynn (10-6, 3.12 ERA) also will attempt to keep his team from dropping all four 2017 games to the Red Sox -- and from losing their third in a row overall after an eight-game winning streak.

The 30-year-old right-hander, who lost that May game to the Red Sox, was the subject of trade rumors when the Cardinals were teetering on the brink at the deadline. However, Lynn stayed as he and his team took off. St. Louis is tied with the Milwaukee Brewers for second place in the National League Central, 1 1/2 games behind the first-place Chicago Cubs.

Lynn is 4-0 with a 1.45 ERA in his past seven starts, and he hasn't lost since July 4. He has held opponents to two runs or fewer in an major-league-best 18 starts and one or fewer in 12 -- tied for the major league lead.

He is 0-1 with a 2.08 ERA in two regular-season starts against the Red Sox. He also pitched twice against Boston in the 2013 World Series, starting and losing Game 4.

In his most recent start, Thursday against the Kansas City Royals, Lynn took a line drive off the head and stayed in the game.

When manager Mike Matheny and trainer Adam Olsen came out to see him, Lynn, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, said: "Go back to the dugout where you belong." Told they were doing their job by checking on his wellbeing, Lynn snapped: "I'm trying to do mine. Get off the mound."

Lynn wound up allowing three runs (two earned) on six hits and five walks over six innings. He got a no-decision in the Cardinals' 8-6 win.

Boston's active roster is a combined 5-for-36 against Lynn, while no Cardinal has more than three career at-bats against Rodriguez.

Rodriguez (4-3, 3.80 ERA) is 0-1 with a 4.39 ERA in five starts since coming off the DL, but he deserved a better fate his last two times out. He gave up two runs on four hits in six innings against the Chicago White Sox on Aug. 4, then yielded two hits in six shutout innings against the Yankees on Friday in New York. He walked two and fanned seven during a game the Yankees rallied to win.

The Red Sox, winners of 11 of their last 13 games, improved to 12-4 in interleague play this season with a 10-4 victory over St. Louis on Tuesday night. Boston holds a 4 1/2-game lead the second-place Yankees in the American League East.
