World Series Game 5

Game 5 of the World Series with the series tied 2-2. Game 1 was a blowout win for Boston 8-1. Then game 2 was a pitching duel that St. Louis won by a score of 4-2. Game 3 was won by St. Louis on an obstruction call in the 9th inning with the score being 5-4. Game 4 was won by a score of 4-2.

 

Game 4 Recap

Clay Buchholz pitched very well for the Red Sox going 4 innings giving up 1 run(not earned) on 3 hits, 3 walks and 2 strikeouts. Lance Lynn pitched well for the Cardinals also going 5 2/3 innings giving up 3 runs on 3 hits, 3 walks and 5 strikeouts. 2 of the 3 runs Lynn gave up were because when he was taken out of the game their were runners on 1st and 2nd. The reliever who came in for Lynn was Sean Maness and he gave up a  home run to Johnny Gomes to give Boston the lead 4-1 at the time. St. Louis would score another run but would not be able to overcome that home run by Gomes and Boston won the game 4-2.

The game was a pitching duel at 1-1 until the 6th inning when Gomes hit that 3 run home run ton left field. You could feel the life just sucked out of the Cardinals when the home run was hit. And you could tell all the momentum was going to the Red Sox.

 

Game 5 Previewjon lester cheating

The Red Sox will send game 1 winner Jon Lester to the mound for game 5. Lester dominated the Cardinals lineup in game 1. He pitched 7 2/3 innings giving up no runs on 5 hits, 1 walk and struck out 8. In game 1 it appeared as if Jon Lester cheated by having some sort of banned substance in his glove to help the ball move more then it should. The green stuff in his glove is the supposed banned substance.

On the other side the Cardinals will send game 1 loser back to the mound Adam Wainwright. Wainwright got lit up in his 1st start of the World Series giving up 5 runs(3 earned) on 5 hits, 1 walks and 4 strikeouts in 5 innings pitched. The veteran Wainwright didn’t seem himself as for the entire game. He would like to get back on track for game 5 so that his team can go back to Boston with a lead of 3-2.

 

Keys To The Game

For Boston

1. Can Jon Lester dominate the Cardinals lineup again?
2. Get to Wainwright early again. When they faced him in game 1 they scored 5 runs in the first 2 innings.
3. When will Stephen Drew’s hitting slump end? This postseason Drew is batting .085 (4 hits in 47 at-bats)

For St. Louis

1. Can Matt Holiday continue his postseason success? He has 16 hits in 62 at-bats with 3 home runs and 9 RBIs.
2. Can Adam Wainwright pitch better then he did in game 1 and give his team a chance to win?
3. Can they slow down David Ortiz? Ortiz has 15 hits in 46 at-bats with 5 home runs and 12 RBIs.

 

My Prediction

Adam Wainwright gets his revenge against Boston as he goes 7 innings strong giving up only 2 runs on 4 hits and striking out 7. Jon Lester pitches well also giving up 3 runs on 6 hits and striking out 5 in 6 innings. Boston ties up the game in the 8th 3-3 when the Cardinals bullpen comes in but in the bottom of the 8th the Cardinals take the lead right back on an RBI single from Matt Holiday. Trevor Rosenthal pitches a scoreless 9th inning to get the save. Thus having the Cardinals up 3-2 in the series as it heads back to Boston for games 6 and 7.

Final Score

St. Louis: 4
Boston: 3
