boston vs st louisWill the World Series be won tonight? Boston has a 3-2 series lead and would like to close out the series in front of their home fans. This is the 1st time since 1918 that Boston has a chance to win the World Series at their home ballpark.

 

Game 5 Recap

Jon Lester dominated the Cardinals lineup again as he allowed only 1 run on 4 hits and struck out 7 in 7 2/3 innings pitched. For the Cardinals Adam Wainwright didn’t pitch bad he just didn’t get any run support. Wainwright allowed 3 runs on 8 hits and struck out 10 in 7 innings pitched. There was just nothing the Cardinals could do against Lester as the 4 hits he gave up were the only hits on the game and 1 of the 4 hits was a home run by Matt Holiday in the 4th inning.

Lester and Wainwright were even in runs allowed until the 7th when Wainwright gave up 2 runs to break the tie and ultimately give Boston the 3-1 lead and that would be enough as they went on to win by a final score of 3-1.

Keys To The Game

For St. Louis 

1. Can they bounce back after losing 2 straight?
2. Can Carlos Beltran stay hot? Beltran is batting .269 with 2 home runs and 14 RBIs.
3. Can  Michael Wacha out duel John Lackey again?

For Boston

1. Which John Lackey will show up? The one who held Detroit scoreless or the one who gave up 3 runs to St. Louis?
2. Can the Boston pitching slow down Matt Holliday? Holliday has 17 hits in 66 at-bats with 4 home runs and 10 RBIs.
3. Can David Ortiz keep his unreal batting average in the World Series? Ortiz has 11 hits in 15 at-bats during the World Series.

 

My Prediction

John Lackey pitches well for Boston only allowing 4 runs on 6 hits in 6 innings pitched but its not as good as Michael Wacha as he goes 7 innings giving up only 1 run on 4 hits and strikes out 7. Boston’s bullpen holds the Cardinals scoreless for the 3 innings they pitch and the Cardinal bullpen gives up 1 run during the 2 innings they pitch but the damage is already done and Boston is never able to recover.

Final Score

St. Louis: 4
Boston: 2
