World Series Game Five Preview: Red Sox at Cardinals

by Mike Gianella


While the end of Game Four wasn’t quite as wild as Game Three’s crazy conclusion, last night was the first time a postseason game ended on a base running play since Game Five of the 1936 World Series (according to Baseball Reference). Propelled by Jonny Gomes’ huge three run home run and a strong bullpen performance, the Red Sox evened the series 2-2 and at a minimum ensured the series will return to Boston. Here is a preview of Game Five of the 2013 World Series.

Red Sox (Jon Lester) at Cardinals (Adam Wainwright) 8:07 p.m. ET

PECOTA odds of winning: Cardinals 56.9%, Red Sox 43.1%

Projected Starting Lineups

Red Sox vs Wainwright (R)

Cardinals vs. Lester (L)
