Red Sox Win Game Four

Game three ended with a trip-off, and game four ended with a pickoff. The Red Sox tied up the World Series on Sunday night with a 4-2 victory after a crushing defeat 24 hours earlier. Johnny Gomes, who was not originally on the lineup and who was batting 0 for 9 in the series, hit a three-run homer in the sixth, giving the Red Sox the lead 4-1. The Cardinals picked up a run in the seventh, but things got a little nutty in the bottom of the ninth. The Cards' Allen Craig (who scored on an obstruction call the night before) singled with two outs, and the team replaced him with Kolten Wong to pinch run with Carlos Beltran at the plate. But Beltran never got a chance to swing—Wong was picked off at first.
