Early Cards threats snuffed out by throws, baserunning miscues
Email to a Friend Printer Friendly Version  

ST. LOUIS (AP) -- After committing eight errors in the first two games, the Red Sox defense made a nice recovery in Game Three of the World Series last night.

With the bases loaded and one out in the first inning, Jim Edmonds of the Cardinals flied to Manny Ramirez in left field.  Larry Walker tried to score from third base but was gunned down at the plate by Ramirez, ending the threat.

The key play of the game may have come in the third inning, with the Red Sox still leading only 1-to-0. An infield hit by Cardinals pitcher Jeff Suppan (SOOďż˝-pahn) and a double by Edgar Renteria off Pedro Martinez put runners on second and third with no one out.

The next St. Louis batter, Larry Walker, hit a grounder to second baseman Mark Bellhorn that was easily deep enough to score Suppan from third. But for some reason, Suppan hesitated while Bellhorn threw out Walker at first. First baseman David Ortiz then alertly fired the ball to Bill Mueller (MILďż˝-ur) at third, who tagged out Suppan as he tried to scramble back to the base.

The Red sox went on to win the game 4-to-1 and take a commanding three-games-to-none lead in the World Series.
