Coming off a controversial ending in Game 3, the Boston Red Sox evened the series with a 4-2 road win over the St. Louis Cardinals.

Boston was desperate to avoid a 3-1 deficit in the series and sent out ace Clay Bucholz to face off against St. Louis’ Lance Lynn.

St. Louis dropped the first game to Boston with shoddy defense, but the teams reversed roles tonight and the Cardinals, thanks also to clutch pitching from Michael Wacha, Carlos Martinez and Trevor Rosenthal, walked away with a 4-2 victory in Game 2.

The World Series is now tied, 1-1.

Jon Lester led the Red Sox with 7 2/3 innings of shutout baseball, striking out eight and allowing just five hits and one walk in Boston’s 8-1 win against St. Louis. The Red Sox lead the World Series, 1-0.

The night started ominously for the Cardinals when 6-foot-7, right-handed starter Adam Wainwright conked his head off the top of the visitor’s dugout at Fenway.

Dock Ellis is a deceased former Pirates' pitcher who passed away nearly five years ago. Todd Snider is a 46-year-old singer-songwriter from Portland, Oregon, who plays country-tinged rock-n-roll. What are these two doing in the same article on a sports web site?

Snider’s 2009 song “America’s Favorite Pastime” chronicles the day in 1970 that Ellis threw a no-hitter for the Pittsburgh Pirates… while under the influence of LSD.

Moments after the Game 4 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals at PNC Park on Monday afternoon, the second-guessers flocked to the parking garages, the local bars and the radio waves.

Why were the Pirates so afraid of Carlos Beltran (as if his post-season numbers weren’t enough of a reason)?

Matt Holliday's two-run homer was the difference and Pedro Alvarez's eighth inning solo home run was the only hit Michael Wacha allowed, as the Cardinals evened the NLDS at two games apiece with a 2-1 win over the Pirates.

Wacha's outing bordered on historic margins, as the rookie retired the first 15 batters he faced and allowed a single hit in the form of Alvarez's home run.

The opportunity for the Pittsburgh Pirates to clinch their first playoff-series win since the franchise defeated the Baltimore Orioles, four games to three, in the 1979 World Series. 34 years later, Charlie Morton makes his postseason debut against Cardinals rookie Michael Wacha who threw eight and two-thirds innings of no-hit baseball in his last outing of the regular season.

This afternoon's contest not only affords the Pirates the chance to close out a series, but also to do so in front of their home crowd.

Pedro Alvarez knocked in the game-winner in the eighth inning and Russell Martin followed with his second RBI of the game, as the Pirates topped the Cardinals 5-3 in Game 3 of the NLDS, taking a two-games-to-one series lead.

Alvarez's single came off left-handed reliever Kevin Siegrist, who had been one of the league's best this season facing left-handed batters.

Pedro Alvarez homered, scored twice and drove in two runs and Gerrit Cole dominated in six innings of work, leading the Pirates to a 7-1 win in St. Louis to even the NLDS at one game apiece.

Coming off a disheartening loss to the Cardinals in Game 1, the Pirates responded with rookie Gerrit Cole on the mound. In his first career postseason appearance, Cole neutralized the potent St.

A.J. Burnett's house of horrors in Busch Stadium continued as the Pirates righty allowed 7 runs without recording an out in the 3rd inning and the Cardinals cruised past the Bucs 9-1 in Game 1 of the NLDS Thursday evening.

After a dominating victory over the Cincinnati Reds in the Wild Card game, the Pirates returned to their first National League playoff series since 1992.

Bob Prince was best known as the voice of the PIttsburgh Pirates for 28 years, but it was not the only job he had over his Hall of Fame career. “The Gunner” also called Steelers and Penguins games at different times during his career and was part of the NBC broadcast team for the 1965 All-Star Game.

Pittsburgh Penguins’ head coach Mike Sullivan has obviously spoken several very kind words about his championship hockey team. Sullivan has complimented his team’s speed, chemistry, and teamwork. But perhaps more than anything else, Sullivan complimented their toughness.
