World Series Game 5 Goes To Red Sox
The Boston Red Sox head back to Boston leading the World Series three games to two in the best of seven series. Game five saw a pitching duel between Jon Lester and Adam Wainwright again as the Sox were 3-1 winners at Busch Stadium. Lester only allowed one run in his 7 2/3 innings of work, to pick up his second win of the series. Koji Uehara picked up his second save getting the final four outs. Red Sox offense was supplied by a David Ortiz double in the first inning, plus a David Ross one-run double and Jacoby Ellsbury RBI single in the seventh. The series now shifts back to Fenway Park for game six and game seven if needed. John Lackey will start for the Sox and St. Louis will start Michael Wacha.
