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.

Carp was pinch-hitting for Red Sox starter Clay Buchholz, whose night ends with a line that reads: 4 IP, 1 R (0 ER), 3 H, 3 BB, 2 K. Lefty Felix Doubront has taken over for him on the mound.

      I hope that was sarcasm. I could understand if you were talking about LGBT or something, as that can be pretty controversial to some, but what’s your problem with opposing a disease that has a 1 in 4 chance of killing you, yourself?

        no, it wasn’t sarcasm. i don’t favor cancer, i oppose corporate entertainment entities manipulating our natural and commendable moral inclinations to obtain for themselves a more profitable marketing opportunity. especially when the corporate entity is something special to me, MLB.

      up here in minnesota last year the twins shamelessly milked killebrew’s death. ad nauseously reminding us that he taught younger players of the importance of providing a conscientious signature to fan autograph requests, as if we mere mortals should enjoy plqayer john hancocks on something other then a check. as far as i can tell, never personally having met him, harmon killebrew was a decent human being who played baseball pretty damn well for a pretty good long time. thanks dude and RIP, but it don’t go no further then that.

      when mlb does a we hate cancer and so do you and therefore you should love us thing, i consider that to be a money grubbing PR lie. that ain’t real baseball.

    Looks like Tim Lincecum co-stars in the new ‘Thor’ movie.
