The Cardinals scored the first two runs of the World Series in the bottom of the fourth. That put them in excellent position, where they remained for some minutes, until Mike Napoli and the Rangers got those two runs right back with a home run. So as the game headed to the bottom of the fifth, it was even once more.
That's when C.J. Wilson opened the door for the Cards to re-assume the lead. After an eight-pitch battle, Rafael Furcal drew a leadoff walk. He advanced to second on Jon Jay's sac bunt, and then Wilson intentionally walked Albert Pujols. That meant the Cards had two on and one out for Matt Holliday, who's a good guy to have up in those sorts of situations.
Holliday hit the first pitch he saw hard, too. Unfortunately...
It was the Cardinals' second double play of the game, but it felt like the fourth. So we move on, with the score still 2-2. Wilson's at 74 pitches, with a lousy 39 strikes.
