WORLD SERIES WATCH: Red Sox look to clinch at home
Question of the Day
BOSTON (AP) - A look at Game 6 of the World Series at Fenway Park on Wednesday night as the St. Louis Cardinals take on the Boston Red Sox:
QUICK WORK: John Lackey needs only five pitches to get through the third inning _ even though Matt Carpenter singled with one out.
Daniel Descalso looked at three straight strikes to start the inning. After the single by Carpenter, Carlos Beltran grounded into a double play.
EARLY ESCAPES: Both starters pitch out of trouble in the second inning.
St. Louis put two on with none out but failed to score. John Lackey threw a two-out wild pitch that pushed the runners to second and third, then struck out Jon Jay.
That left the Cardinals 6 for 36 with runners in scoring position during the Series after setting a franchise record with a .330 mark in those situations during the regular season.
You get the feeling if the Cardinals can break through for one big hit at the right time in this game, the floodgates might open. But without it, they’ll go home lamenting their lack of clutch hitting in this Series.
Matt Adams flied out to deep left, but David Freese skied to shallow center on a hittable breaking ball. Tim McCarver on Fox notes Freese, the hometown star for St. Louis in the 2011 Series, has stranded 15 runners this postseason.
Boston put two on to start the bottom of the second and failed to score, too. Chose not to bunt with rookie Xander Bogaerts. Not a surprise _ the Red Sox don’t like to sacrifice.
Michael Wacha got two foul popups and a strikeout to keep it scoreless.
PACKED HOUSE: Man, oh man, are they fired up in Boston.
Red Sox looking to clinch a World Series title on their own field at fabled Fenway Park for the first time in 95 years, a stretch that’s lasted from Babe Ruth to Big Papi.
