World Series evens on Cardinals base running, Red Sox flubs

(Continued)

BOSTON, Mass. —

The beneficiary of the Cardinals' answer to Ortiz’s homer was the talented Wacha, who has only been with team since early August.

“That’s the reason that they’re here right now,” said Wacha. “They never lose the fight, no matter what the score is, they always come in. They make plays behind you. It’s so much fun pitching out there.”

The Cardinals are beginning to look a lot like the Red Sox in diapers without the facial hair.

Each pitcher that entered the game looked younger and threw harder than the guy before him.

The fact that Matheny didn’t do what every other manager in the league would have done when Ortiz came up again in the eighth inning, with Jacoby Ellsbury on base, and replace the Cardinals' right-handed reliever, Carlos Martinez, speaks volumes of this team’s grit.

Ortiz ended up getting a single, but the inning ended with he and Ellsbury stranded on base.

The Cardinals closed the game with 23-year-old Trevor Rosenthal striking out the side - all on fastballs topping 97 mph. It was impressive.

It was also a sign. We have ourselves a World Series.

And despite early returns, it’s not going to be easy for the Red Sox.
