Red Sox grab early lead in World Series Game 6

Boston is on top in Game 6 of the World Series.

Cardinals rookie sensation Michael Wacha was sharp through the first two innings, but Jacoby Ellsbury opened the bottom of the third with a single to right field, David Ortiz was issued an intentional walk and Jonny Gomes took a pitch off his left shoulder to load the bases with Red Sox. Shane Victorino then slugged a bases-clearing double off the Green Monster to put the Red Sox up 3-0.

Red Sox starter John Lackey has given up some hard-hit balls, but the Cardinals have again failed to make any real noise with runners in scoring position. The top of the fourth inning is about to begin at a ready-to-celebrate Fenway Park.

    i have it on good authority that in spite of his dislike for the mutant coastal regions, and his desire that there be a game seven, that god has a decided preference for the american league and that he clearly favors the DH rule.

    Stephen Drew has hit a Homer Run. It’s a sign of the Apocalypse.

      Then Beltran gives up on Ellsbury’s hit.

    While it’s only the 4th Inning, it should be all hands on Deck for St. Louis, is Lance Lynn REALLY Matheny’s best option?

    • jss1330 - Oct 30, 2013 at 9:46 PM

      Shelby Miller is on the roster.

    I notice a serious absence of St. Louis Fan commenters, are they all drinking already? Surely that’s not the Cardinal Way?

    • jcmeyer10 - Oct 30, 2013 at 9:43 PM

      I’m happy drinking which make it more fun to comment. They are sad drinking in a dark room, no fun commenting.

    I’m rooting for the Cardinals, but I can take some solace in it being McCarver’s last game in the booth.

    He was criticizing Ross for the way he went after that curveball in the dirt in the first inning, saying the ball went off the heel of his mitt. The ball hit the front edge of the plate and skipped sideways, and Ross had no prayer of touching it no matter what he did.

    So long, Tim. Thanks for the memories.

      Its kind of sad to watch. He’s like an old man that lost his marbles. Yet, he’s always been like this. He tried so hard to villainize Victorino tonight before the hits that it was literally sad to watch. I know he didn’t want to go out this way, as I know how big of a Cardinal fan he is, but my god.. grasping at straws doesn’t help.

    Holy Hell. Matheny is an idiot. Your season is on the line, you need to stop the other team from scoring, you have every pitcher available, and you do nothing….then when you finally do something, you bring in Lance Freaking Lynn? Really? That is your solution? Jesus, they need to teach this guy a few things about actually managing important games….leverage, and recency bias….just to start. Given, his hitters and the roster construction haven’t helped, and they are still losing mostly because they are getting beaten….but he’s been about as bad as possible managing this series.

      It’s like he and Farrell have been trying to one-up each other’s horrific decisions the entire series.

    McCarver wants the Cards to get back in this one so bad. Too bad Timmy!
