World Series Game 5: Pitching preview, Wainwright vs. Lester

ST. LOUIS - Game 5 of the 2013 World Series between the Boston Red Sox and St. Louis Cardinals is set for 8:07 p.m. ET/7:07 p.m. local time in Busch Stadium Monday night. As far as the weather, we've been blessed thus far through four games and that's a trend that will continue at least through Game 5.

Because, seriously, it's gorgeous today in St. Louis -- with the photo evidence above to prove it.

Once again, the weather.com hourly forecast shows a zero percent chance of rain and low winds throughout the game.

It's not even supposed to be that cold, either, as the temperature isn't expected to dip below 50 until 11 p.m. local time -- or nearly four hours after the first pitch.

So, once again, Mother Nature is kindly staying out of things and letting the Red Sox and Cardinals decide the Fall Classic.
