World Series 2013 Game 4 lineup: Boston Red Sox at St. Louis Cardinals

It’s been a long time since I’ve seen a baseball game as good as Game 3 of the World Series, so improving on that tonight will be difficult. Though, as we’ve seen through the series’ first three contests, we’re likely in for another classic.

Earlier today, the Cardinals expressed optimism that Allen Craig, who had an awkward slide at the end of Game 3 did not suffer any setbacks in his foot injury though he isn’t in the starting lineup despite rumors that he might be.

For the Red Sox, Mike Napoli still remains out of the lineup, this after being regulated to pinch hitting duty in Game 3 due to the lack of the designated hitter.
