(AP) A look at Game 3 of the World Series at Busch Stadium on Saturday night as the Boston Red Sox take on the St. Louis Cardinals:


___


HERE WE GO: Under way in Game 3 as the World Series shifts to Busch Stadium in St. Louis.


Jake Peavy set to start for Boston. He was 0-1 with an 8.31 ERA in two playoff starts this month. This will be the first career World Series start for the 2007 NL Cy Young Award winner.


Joe Kelly gets the ball for the Cardinals. He was 0-1 with a 4.41 ERA in three playoff starts.


One of the Fox broadcasters notes that 16 of the past 18 World Series that were tied 1-all were won by the team that took Game 3.


___


UNFAMILIAR TERRITORY: With the move to the NL ballpark, there was no designated hitter allowed. Wanting to keep David Ortiz in the lineup after he homered in Games 1 and 2, Red Sox manager John Farrell put Big Papi at first base where he played just 39 innings during the regular season.


___


HELP, PLEASE: In the first two games of the Series, Ortiz and Dustin Pedroia combined for seven hits in 13 at-bats. The rest of the Red Sox were 5 for 51 for an .098 batting average.


___


EQUINE GUESTS: The Budweiser Clydesdales took a lap around the warning track before player introductions. Anheuser-Busch Cos. Inc. owned the Cardinals from 1953-96.


There also was a pregame video tribute to Hall of Famer Stan Musial, the Cardinals great who died in January.


Willie McGee, the former St. Louis outfielder and 1985 NL MVP, threw out the first ball.
