World Series Game 3: Cardinals at Rangers

With the World Series even at a game apiece, the Rangers take the home field advantage tonight in Arlington. The Rangers are starting their second of three left-handed starters — believed to be an advantage for Texas this series — while the Cardinals are going with veteran Kyle Lohse, who’s never won a postseason game and has never pitched in the World Series.

Amazing story out of St. Louis: The Cardinals postseason run generated enough revenue that the city of St. Louis cancelled plans to force city employees to take an unpaid furlough this year.

• Thursday’s Game 2 drew 5 percent more television viewers than last year’s Game 2. It was the first time in four years that Game 2 rated higher than Game 1.

• Game 2 was also the 12th one-run game of this postseason, tying the record set in 1995 and matched in 1997 and 2003.

• Country music singer Ronnie Dunn — the the Dunn part of Brooks and Dunn — will sing the National Anthem before the game.
