World Series Game Five

“On paper, this projects as a low-scoring game. The Cards are batting just .235 as a team this series. The Red Sox are even worse at .189.”

Boston at St. Louis, 1:30PM HST, 4:30PM Pacific, 7:30PM Eastern on Fox.

The Sox’ pitcher is Jon Lester; the Cardinals’ pitcher is Adam Wainwright.

In two World Series starts, Lester has yet to allow a run, including pitching 7 2/3 shutout innings against the Cards in Game 1.

Wainwright . . . struggled in the opener, allowing five runs (three earned) in five innings.

    What’ll it be today? Triple play? Suicide squeeze? Somebody hitting for the cycle?

    • WBBsAs

      Winning run scores on a balk.

      • RBI

        That works!

          Or a new version of Jeffrey Maier turns up in the outfield seats.

    • WBBsAs

      Alternatively, run forced in on a catcher’s interference call.

  • RBI

    Good game, but seriously lacking in drama.

    Man, Lester was on his game.

    Supposing this goes 7 games, Ortiz keeps this up and Lester wins his third, who takes home the MVP trophy?
    Then again, I see Boston putting them away early in game 6.
