Despite an easy rout of the St. Louis Cardinals in Game 1 of the World Series, things are not going as planned for the Boston Red Sox with Game 3 at Busch Stadium on the horizon.

Boston was set to send Clay Buchholz to the mound for Game 3, but Buchholz will not be making the start due to soreness in his shoulder as reported by Jeff Jacobs of the Hartford Courant and SportsCenter:
