Boston pulls even in the World Series 2-2.


For a moment, David Ortiz looked like a college coach calling a 20-second time out. It was getting late, and the Red Sox were running out of chances. Ortiz wanted to let his teammates know that opportunities like this don't come every year.

The peptalk worked.

The Red Sox were tied with the Cardinals 1-1. A loss would have given St. Louis a commanding lead in the World Series. Dustin Pedroia reached base with a single. The Cardinals pitched around Ortiz, who is hitting .727 in the series.  Johnny Gomes followed with a three run home run. It proved to be enough.

Boston won the game 4-2. The game ended with a pick off at first base, while Carlos Beltran stood at the plate representing the tying run. This is the 109th World Series, and it was the first game ever to end with a pick off play.

Saturday's game ended with the first World Series game ending with an obstruction play. There is no telling how these games are going to end, or how this series will end. One thing is for certain, Ortiz will not let his team waste this opportunity.
