Cardinals Tickets Well Below Average For World Series Rematch
A World Series rematch will be taking place this week, but the two teams are going in two different directions. After taking two out of three games against the Milwaukee Brewers at home over the weekend, the St. Louis Cardinals welcome the Boston Red Sox to Busch Stadium for three games this week. While the Red Sox will miss the playoffs following a championship 2013 season, the Cardinals are in the thick of the hunt as they continue to battle with the Brewers for first place in the NL Central. The Redbirds sit just one game behind the Brewers, who are 61-51 on the season.
The Cardinals schedule will see the team host the Red Sox this week for the final time this season. The season average for St. Louis Cardinals tickets is $54 but each game of the series will have an average well below that price on the secondary market.
8/5 – Rubby De La Rosa vs Lance Lynn | Avg. Price: $36 | Get-in Price: $10
The series begins Monday night when Lance Lynn takes the mound for the Cardinals against Red Sox pitcher Rubby De La Rosa. The average price for Tuesday Cardinals vs Red Sox tickets is $36 on the secondary market, 33.3% below the season average, with a get-in price of $10. Lynn has been a source of consistency for the Cardinals, going 11-8 with a 2.98 ERA this season. After losing to the Blue Jays in both of his last two starts, De La Rosa will make his 10th start of the season. The righty is 3-4 with a 3.64 ERA.
8/6 – Joe Kelly vs Shelby Miller | Avg. Price: $37 | Get-in Price: $9
The second game of the series will feature Cardinals pitcher Shelby Miller against the newly acquired Joe Kelly of the Red Sox. The average secondary price for Wednesday’s game is $37, the most expensive game of the series but still 31.4% below the season average. The get-in price starts at $9. Miller enters Tuesday’s game at 8-8 with a 4.14 ERA. Kelly will make his debut for the Red Sox after being traded by the Cardinals last week. He is 9-7 with a 2.90 ERA lifetime at Busch Stadium and will make his eighth start of the season.
8/7 – Brandon Workman vs Adam Wainwright | Avg. Price: $32 | Get-in Price: $8
