Cardinals Want Nothing To Do With This World Series


Cardinals Drop Infield Fly

The St. Louis Cardinals had a rough start to Game 1 of the 2013 World Series. After shortstop Pete Kozma dropped a put-out at second base that sparked a 3 run first inning for the Boston Red Sox, miscommunication between starting pitcher Adam Wainwright and catcher Yadier Molina allowed an easy Stephen Drew pop-up to fall for an infield single in the 2nd inning.

The error kicked off a 2-run inning for the Red Sox, who ended up with an 8-1 victory in Game 1.

More concerning for the Cardinals is the injury to outfielder Carlos Beltran, who suffered a rib injury after robbing a David Ortiz home run.  Beltran left the game in the 2nd inning and is currently day-to-day.
