WORLD SERIES WATCH: Sox win 3-1, lead Series 3-2
DOUBLE SWITCH: Boston manager John Farrell makes a double switch in the eighth inning _ a move he said he should have made late in Game 3.
Farrell replaces David Ortiz at first base with Mike Napoli and lifts starter Jon Lester to go to Uehara for a four-out save. A little unusual to pull a lefty and bring in a right-hander to face lefty pinch-hitter Matt Adams. Uehara, however, is plenty effective against lefties with that fading splitter.
Ortiz finishes the night with three hits and is 11 for 15 (.733) in the Series.
BACK IN FRONT: David Ross hits an RBI double in the seventh inning to put Boston back on top.
Cardinals caught a break when the ball bounced into the stands for a ground-rule double. That left runners at second and third and probably saved them a run _ but only momentarily.
Ross was thrown out at the plate by Shane Robinson to end the inning. Yadier Molina lunged for the tag on a sliding Ross. He and Molina patted each other after the play _ mutual respect from two catchers.
It was the bottom of the lineup, which hadn’t done much for Boston all Series, that got the Red Sox going.
