World Series 2013 Game 3 lineup: Boston Red Sox at St. Louis Cardinals

American League teams never enjoy hitting the road in the World Series as they’re always less a hitter. The story will be no different for the Boston Red Sox who have been forced to make a lineup change thanks to playing in a National League park for the next few games.

Red Sox slugger David Ortiz will stick in the lineup at first base, though, Mike Napoli (the normal starter) will be regulated to bench duty for Game 3.

Meanwhile, for the Cardinals, Allen Craig who played in the series’ first two contests as their designated hitter will take a seat though it’s expected he will draw a start in the field for Game 4 and/or Game 5.
