We’re all tied up in Game 5 of the World Series.
After the Red Sox grabbed an early lead on an RBI double from David Ortiz in the top of the first inning, the Cardinals evened things up in the bottom of the fourth inning when Matt Holliday took Jon Lester deep for a long solo homer to straight-away center field. He has both home runs for the Cardinals during the series.
Carlos Beltran nearly followed Holliday with a home run of his own, but the ball died near the warning track in left field. Stephen Drew then made a highlight reel jumping catch to rob Yadier Molina of a hit to end the inning. Drew isn’t hitting a lick this postseason, but he’s sure playing a nice shortstop.
The Red Sox and Cardinals are tied 1-1 as Game 5 moves into the top of the fifth inning.
