a pinch runner. just thinking now. you want to take him out. i'm sure john farrell is thinking about that anyway, they have got a two-run lead. put berry in there. berry with a stolen base last night and then napoli for defense. let's see. >> joe: he is not leaving. still in the game with one out. although ortiz, in talking to john farrell before game three, said he doesn't have the range of mike napoli but he's not a liability over at fifrst pace. >> tim: and he's not a slow runner either. he's lost a lot of weight. >> joe: he's on with one out here in the eighth and the batter is jonny gomes. strike one.
runner at first, one out. 0-1 on gomes. strike two. david ortiz just became the first red sox player all time with back-to-back three-hit games in a world series. we said he's 11 out of 15 in this world series. he'd be 12 out of 15 if beltran didn't rob him of a home run. that was back in game one. a strikeout for the second out. >> tim: sweeping slider from martinez. little pedro.
kind of unfair to pedro martinez in a sense, because he had such an illustrious career. i always thought a guy who had a career like pedro martinez, you don't want to name someone prematurely. but if you're going to name anybody, it could be this guy, carlos martinez. >> joe: that stays at home plate. not only do they have the same body type -- >> tim: yeah. >> joe: -- but even the delivery is similar. >> tim: the freedom of movement of the shoulder. which scouts just love. >> joe: and a former infielder. >> tim: yeah. >> joe: 185-pound right-hander. maybe six feet. 22 years old from the dominican republic.
one on, two out, a 1-0 pitch. flied into left. holliday is there, and we go to the bottom of the eighth inning here in game five. jon lester has been dominant here tonight. he's allowed only one run on three hits. will he go back to work? or is it the bullpen's turn? we'll find out after this.

getting loose here in the eighth. yeah, right on the inside part of that left foot. here's the 0-1. lester still throwing hard. one ball, one strike. craig has bounced into a double play, grounded out to second. getting the surprise start tonight. lester had him fooled and the count 1-2. >> tim: david ross doing a very good job behind home plate with pitch selection. obviously an important part of that tandem pitcher and catcher. >> joe: he's done a great job at the plate where he's got two hits, an rbi double. set up that two-run rally in the seventh. craig rounds left side, it's bogaerts to his left with time. one out.
after the game, fox sports live is your home for world series postgame coverage. jay and dan with all the highlights, plus live reaction from the ballpark. jimmy rollins, a.j. pierzynski here at busch stadium. a complete breakdown of tonight's seahawks/rams game which is just down the street and a one-on-one with lebron james. that's all after the game on "fox sports live" on fox sports 1. here's david freese. strike one. freese with a hit and a strikeout. and he has just four singles in eight games since game four of the nlcs. no extra base hits. the 0-1.
michael wacha gets the ball on wednesday night in fenway. he was the winner in game two. a rematch with john lackey. here's the 1-1. inside corner, strike two. one out, bases empty. the 1-2 pitch. hard hit, fair past the first baseman and down the right field line. freese will try to make it a double, and he does. with one out. just fair in between the line and david ortiz. >> tim: that was a good pitch from lester too. he tried that cutter, just over the bag. it may have even landed foul,
but that doesn't matter. if it goes over the bag and lands foul, it's a fair ball. now with the potential tying run at the plate, we'll see what john farrell is going to do with a loose, warm, koji uehara in the bullpen. >> joe: pete kozma is up here. kozma who has just one hit since the start of the nlcs. and i know it's a left-handed heavy bench, with guys
like matt adams, jon jay and daniel descalso. there was a decision made with adams on deck to send kozma to the plate here. 0 for 1 tonight. ball one.
the only right-hander that the cardinals have on their bench to start the night is the backup catcher, tony cruz. four lefties with adams, wong, jay and descalso. flied into left, easy for gomes. two out. a big out picked up by lester. and now matt adams will come off the bench and try and deliver something big here in the eighth. but it does not look like it will be against jon
lester. >> tim: i think this move is being made, joe, because ko koji uehara is equally as effective against left-handers or right-handers. >> joe: mike napoli will be a
part of the double switch. he'll bat in the number nine spot. david ortiz is finished for the night. and the pitcher will bat in the number three spot. and john farrell will go to the mound. and like it was in game one of this world series, jon lester brilliant through 7 2/3. uehara takes over here in the eighth.

now it's matt adams taking a strike from koji uehara, as mike napoli takes over at first base. the tying run at the plate. six saves this postseason for the red sox closer. the 0-1. strike two. >> tim: two splitters. we've talked about how uehara, his splitters go down, they go away from a left-hander or they go away from a right-hander. very difficult to pick up. >> joe: koji brings it, adams strikes out. and on three pitches, game number five heads into the ninth. a three-pitch pinch hitting appearance for matt adams. and these red sox have seen a lot of this from their closer.

>> joe: well, if koji uehara is going to get his seventh save of this postseason and his second of this world series, he's going to have to do it against the top of the cardinal lineup. up 3-1, bottom of the ninth inning, carpenter takes a ball outside. matt carpenter, then a pinch hitter, jon jay, it appears, then matt holliday. if anybody gets on, carlos beltran. uehara struck out the pinch hitter, matt adams, to end the eighth. strike one. the 1-1.
that was a two-seam fastball. talk about deceptive. >> joe: like john farrell has told us more than once in this postseason, koji uehara has an amazing ability to read a hitter and be one pitch ahead of him. here's jon jay batting for robinson. strike one as he starts in with a fastball. >> tim: a former pitching coach saying he's the best he's ever seen. >> joe: one ball, one strike. that's down the left field line, out of play, strike two.
the boston red sox win here tonight, they'll have a chance to clinch the world series at home, at fenway park for the first time since 1918. with one out, nobody on, the 1-2 pitch. just up and away with the fastball. 2-2. uehara trying to save it for jon lester. here's the 2-2 pitch. back-to-back fastballs from the boston right-hander. st. louis needs one base runner to have a chance. matt holliday on deck. >> tim: uehara has no breaking ball. he's thrown it one time this year. and when he threw it, he hit
kendrick of the angels. >> joe: right side napoli tosses it to uehara for out number two. napoli who did not start, but was inserted for what he can do at first base makes the play to his right. he fed koji uehara perfectly. two out. and the red sox really believe napoli in his first full year at first base was gold glove worthy with the job he did after a lot of work with brian butterfield in learning the position. two out, nobody on. here's matt holliday, who hit a home run back in the fourth inning for the only st. louis run tonight. that's into right.
