David Ortiz seems to be the only consistent source of offense for the Red Sox thus far in the World Series. He led off the fifth inning of Game 4 with a double to right-center, their first extra-base hit of the night against Cardinals starter Lance Lynn. Lynn started to unravel, walking Jonny Gomes, and then walking Xander Bogaerts.
Stephen Drew, who has had an awful World Series at least with the bat, muscled a fly ball to left fielder Matt Holliday. Holliday fired home but catcher Yadier Molina was unable to corral the ball to apply the tag to Ortiz. With the score tied 1-1, Molina made several trips to the mound to coach Lynn through the final two batters of the inning, striking out David Ross and getting an inning-ending ground out from Mike Carp.
