After each team claimed two victories, it was anyone’s game on Monday night in St. Louis. Boston was the first to score when David Ortiz‘s double in the first inning brought Dustin Pedroia home. St. Louis caught up in the fourth inning when Matt Holliday homered.
The game was tied 1-1 for several innings, before Red Sox’s David Ross hit a double to bring Xander Bogaerts home in the seventh inning. Stephen Drew later made it home in the same inning to bring the score to 3-1.
This victory means that the Red Sox need only one more win to clinch the World Series.
Game 6 of the World Series airs Wednesday at 8/7c on Fox from Fenway Park in Boston.
