FRIDAY SPORTS: Cards even Series; Panthers win; Mississppi State beats UK

October 25, 2013

*The St. Louis Cardinals defeated the Boston Red Sox 4-2 Thursday night at Fenway Park to even the World Series at one game each. Although St. Louis got on the board first, David Ortiz again went long for Boston in the loss, with a two-run homer in the sixth that put them up 2-1. But the Cardinals came back to score three more runs, all of them in the seventh inning. Carlos Beltran, who bruised his ribs the night before when he stole an Ortiz grand slam with a catch over the right-field fence, was in the game and drove in one of the runs in the seventh with an RBI single. Game 3 will be played Saturday in St. Louis. Jake Peavy will start for Boston and Joe Kelly for the Cardinals.
