WORLD SERIES WATCH: Red Sox tie it 2-all in 6th
Question of the Day
Joe Kelly gets the ball for the Cardinals. He was 0-1 with a 4.41 ERA in three playoff starts.
Wearing those distinctive goggles, Kelly looks fired-up. Pumping in a heater at 98 mph in the first inning, he struck out Jacoby Ellsbury looking and then grabbed a comebacker barehanded.
Carpenter helped Kelly with a spectacular, diving play in the second to rob Daniel Nava of a hit. Nava getting his first World Series start in left field instead of Jonny Gomes.
Fox notes that 16 of the past 18 World Series that were tied 1-all were won by the team that took Game 3.
UNFAMILIAR TERRITORY: With the move to the NL ballpark, there was no designated hitter allowed. Wanting to keep David Ortiz in the lineup after he homered in Games 1 and 2, Red Sox manager John Farrell put Big Papi at first base _ where he played just 39 innings during the regular season.
Mike Napoli relegated to the bench for Boston, taking a big bat out of the lineup.
HELP, PLEASE: In the first two games of the Series, Ortiz and Dustin Pedroia combined for seven hits in 13 at-bats. The rest of the Red Sox were 5 for 51 for an .098 batting average.
EQUINE GUESTS: The Budweiser Clydesdales took a lap around the warning track before player introductions. Anheuser-Busch Cos. Inc. owned the Cardinals from 1953-96.
There also was a pregame video tribute to Hall of Famer Stan Musial, the Cardinals great who died in January.
Willie McGee, the former St. Louis outfielder and 1985 NL MVP, threw out the first ball.
