Boston Red Sox Grand Slams the St. Louis Cardinals in Game 1 of the 2013 World Series

Fenway Park Entertains Game 1 of the 2013 World Series

I am a proud BOSTONIAN! 

Right away the energy of my fellow Bostonian’s was through the roof at Fenway Park for the kick off of the 2013 World Series.  A brisk chilly night here in Boston, but you would never know it by the way the Red Sox are heating things up. The starting pitcher John Lester is on a mission from god. He’s focused and certainly ready to intimidate the Cardinals. Pitching for about 8 innings tonight St. Louis was shutdown from the door.

Let’s start with some mistakes that the Cardinals made throughout the night.

Mistakes Made  in the 1st Inning

St Louis Cardinals  Pete Kozma. Dropping the easy double play ball on second base allowing bases loaded.

2nd inning

The terrible communication between St. Louis’s pitcher Adam Wainwright and catcher Yadier Molina for the easy fly ball out that Drew popped up right over the pitchers mound. It seriously looked like a bloopers commercial.

Error again by Pete Kozma dropping the ball that was right in his glove again. Come on buddy

Going into the third inning, the Red Sox are on the boards with 5 runs and the Cardinals with a Goose egg. That means 0.  That’s what makes being a Red Sox fan feel as if we’re on top of the world.

Now, with the nervous feeling that you just want the Red Sox to continue playing the way they have been since the first pitch. There were a few nervous hot spots. The Red Sox goes out quick in the third inning and pitcher John Lester walks his first man.

Game 1 World Series Lester Pitches

Lester seems to be letting things slide just a bit. St Louis has bases loaded. The nerves are high but then all of a sudden what happens…. Lester catches a bounce hit, throws the guy heading home out and the catcher throws it to first getting him out and BAM Double play. St. Louis stays scoreless.

David “Big Papi” Ortiz was outstanding adding another Home run hit to his 2013 Playoff record. 2013 Boston Red Sox Game 1 Win

Game one definitely went to the Boston Red Sox. They played a tremendous game. Winning 8-1.

Let’s hold on strong and continue this effort right into Game 2. Hell the rest of this series.
