The Cardinals have their first lead of the 2013 World Series.

After St. Louis was held scoreless through the first three innings tonight by John Lackey, Matt Holliday led off the top of the fourth inning by hitting a ball to the right-center field gap. The ball deflected off the wall and rolled along the warning track toward center field, which allowed Holliday to scamper all the way to third base. After Matt Adams was robbed of a hit on a diving catch by Dustin Pedroia, Yadier Molina knocked in Holliday with an infield ground out to get the Cards on the board.

Michael Wacha will head back to the mound in the bottom of the fourth with a 1-0 lead.

    YEAH! Now let’s get more, for the strike zone is tight and the Red Sox plate discipline is absurdly good.

    The rookie’s pitch count was around 100 and he was allowed to pitch to Ortiz. Should have walked him.

      If that were LaRussa, the Cardinals would be on their 8th pitcher by now.

        You know LaRussa better than I do.
