WORLD SERIES WATCH: Ortiz gives Red Sox early lead
CAN’T GET HIM OUT: David Ortiz singles in the fourth to make him 10 for 13 (.769) with four walks in the Series.
FINDING HIS STROKE? David Freese grounded a leadoff single up the middle in the third, perhaps a good sign for St. Louis. The hometown favorite entered 1 for 12 in the Series and 8 for 49 (.163) in the postseason. He’s left a bunch of guys on base, too.
LARGE FATHER: Boston breaks out to a 1-0 lead in the first inning on an RBI double by Ortiz _ who else? Big Papi has six RBIs in the Series.
Wainwright prevented further damage and then looked very sharp in the second inning, striking out all three batters. In fact, his first six outs came on strikeouts _ including five in a row.
As a hitter, Lester is 0 for 31 with 19 strikeouts in his regular-season career.
ON THE BAG: Allen Craig started at first base for St. Louis, his first time playing defense since Sept. 4.
Craig returned from a sprained left foot in this Series, but had only seen time as the DH in Boston and a pinch-hitter in St. Louis. He definitely appeared to have a hard time running the past two nights.
