The St. Louis Cardinals and Boston Red Sox face off on Sunday in an MLB showdown at Fenway Park. The two teams have split the first two games of this series. 

The Cardinals come into this game with a 38-29 record overall and on Saturday the offense was elite scoring 11 runs on the way to the victory. On Friday the Cardinals offense didn’t get hot until the 9th inning, but they couldn’t do enough and lost by a run. The Cardinals offense has been good averaging 4.88 runs per game which is 6th best in baseball. Paul Goldschmidt has hit 16 home runs and driven in 58 RBIs. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Red Sox who sit with a 35-31 record overall but over the last ten innings the pitching has really let them down. The Red Sox are averaging 4.71 runs per game which is 8th best the MLB. Trevor Story is having a big season hitting nine home runs and driven in 44 RBIs.

Andre Pallante will get the start for the Cardinals and he sits with a 2-0 record and a low ERA of 1.04.

Getting the start for the Red Sox will be Nick Pivetta who sits with a 6-5 record and an ERA of 3.50. In his last start against the A’s, he went eight innings giving up three hits and one run. The Red Sox need Pivetta to have a really strong start in this game. 

The Red Sox are 4-1 in their last five games against a team with a winning record. The Cardinals are 1-5 in their last six games as an underdog. The under is 4-0-1 in the Red Sox’s last five during Game 3 of a series. The under is 9-1 in Pivetta’s last 10 starts during Game 3 of a series. 

Runs are going to be hard to come by for both teams in this game. Pivetta is coming off a start where he gave up only one run and Pallante currently sits with an ERA of 1.04. Look for both offenses to have struggles against Pivetta and Pallante, and that will lead to this game staying under the total.
