Marquee pitchers that make more for 1 regular season start than they do for 5 postseason starts.

Innings pitched after the 4th are important for a high game score.

Good pitching, tight games and not taking three-and-a-half hours (or longer) to play.

The last time the first two games of the World Series were played this crisply? It was the Cardinals again, in 2006 against Detroit.

Is that right?

Wild Bill Donovan had an 83 in a 13-inning tie game in the 1907 opener:

WS Game 1: 16 occurrences
WS Game 2: 12 occurrences
WS Game 3: 16 occurrences
WS Game 4: 13 occurrences
WS Game 5: 13 occurrences
WS Game 6: 3 occurrences
WS Game 7: 5 occurrences

Game 1; that's when the teams are most likely to start their marquis pitchers

Forgive me, Frank — I'm going to take this one, tuck it under my arm and run with it. The answer is Game 4 of the 2004 World Series, for the Cardinals, Game Score of 47 in a 3-0 loss to the Red Sox.
