Game One lineups and pregame news from Fenway

By Mike Harrington

BOSTON -- The lineups are in for Game One of the World Series and they read as follows:

St. Louis
Matt Carpenter, 2b
Carlos Beltran, rf
Matt Hollidahy, lf
Allen Craig, dh
Yadier Molina, c
David Freese, 3b
Matt Adams, 1b
Shane Robinson, cf
Pete Kozma, ss
---
Adam Wainwright, p

Boston
Jacoby Ellsbury, cf
Shane Victorino, rf
Dustin Pedroia, 2b
David Ortiz, dh
Mike Napoli, 1b
Jonny Gomes, lf
Xander Bogaerts, 3b
Stephen Drew, ss
David Ross, c
---
Jon Lester, p 

With no games yet under their belts in this series, not a lot of pregame chatter. The biggest news was when Red Sox manager John Farrell said Clay Buchholz will pitch this weekend in St. Louis in either Game Three of Four. Buchholz has struggled with his velocity in the postseason and rumors have been rampant here the Sox may replace him with Felix Doubront, especially when Doubront threw an unscheduled simulated game at Fenway Tuesday night.

Buchholz missed three months with a shoulder injury and was taken out of a start last week against Detroit after just 85 pitches. He's struggled with his command and has worked at an ever-increasing slow pace on the mound.

I'll be giving my thoughts on Game One during our live blog/Twitter collection. That will get started at 8 p.m.
