Red Sox, Cardinals Game Six Tonight
(Boston, MA) -- The World Series shifts back to Boston as the Red Sox and Cardinals play Game Six tonight at Fenway Park with a 7:07 p.m. start time. The Sox took a three-games-to-two lead in the best-of-seven series with a 3-1 win in Monday's Game Five in St. Louis. Cards manager Mike Matheny understands what's at stake.
John Lackey will start tonight for Boston, while St. Louis counters with rookie Michael Wacha. It's a rematch of Game Two, which resulted in a 4-2 Cardinals' win. The Red Sox are looking to clinch their first World Series title at home since 1918 against the Cubs. If the Cardinals win tonight, the Sox will host a deciding Game Seven on Thursday.
Cardinals' Molina Earns Sixth Straight Gold Glove
(New York, NY) -- St. Louis Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina is a Gold Glove winner for the sixth straight year. Molina and teammate Adam Wainwright headlined the National League Gold Glove winners Tuesday. The two Cards are among four players in the World Series to win Gold Gloves.
Chevy Pulls Game Five Ad
(St. Louis, MO) -- Chevy and Major League Baseball say sensitivity concerns led them to cancel a scheduled promotion in the middle of Game Five of the World Series. The Chevy Silverado ad was going to involve fans holding up placards in the stands to read "Silverado Strong." Chevy says they realized during a rehearsal that the promotion may come across as offensive because of the "Boston Strong" rally following the Boston Marathon bombings. The ad had been set to take place after the second inning.
