Red Sox head to St. Louis for Game 3
BOSTON (WHDH) -- Red sox players returned to Fenway as prepared to head to St. Louis with the World Series now tied a game apiece. Fans were also there to see the team off.
“Given a good luck on their way to St. Louis,” said John Ebert, Red Sox fan.
“It’s cold but well worth it,” said Judy Johns, Sox fan.
But even Ryan Dempster's loud plaid suit can't distract the team from costly errors during last night's game.
“Uncharacteristic of the way we’ve, I think taken care of the baseball this year,” said John Farrell, Sox manager.
Both starting pitchers: Michael Wacha and John Lackey were solid.
But when Craig Breslow came in, the Sox buckled.
This time it was the Sox who were sloppy and the Cardinals capitalized.
In the seventh inning, a throwing error from Gomes to Saltalmacchia at home, immediately followed by a wild throw to third by Breslow gave Cardinals the 4-2 win.
“One of those plays kinda do or die, but obviously could’ve hung on to the ball but at the time we're trying to get the out, were trying to play a hard game,” said Saltalamacchia.
David Ortiz's two-run homerun was the highlight for the Sox.
“We're a tough team, a resilient team, we'll bounce back, we'll head out there and battle like we have the last two days,” said Breslow.
