VIDEO: Matt Holliday takes Lester deep to tie World Series Game 5

By Mike Axisa | Baseball Writer

The Red Sox jumped out to 1-0 lead in the first inning of World Series Game 5 thanks to back-to-back doubles by Dustin Pedroia and David Ortiz, but the Cardinals managed to tie the game a few innings later. Matt Holliday took Jon Lester deep out to dead center field in the fourth:

Man, Holliday is so strong. I think he's one of the most underappreciated great hitters of his generation.

Carlos Beltran followed the homer with a loud fly ball out to the warning track. The next batter, Yadier Molina, lined out to short thanks to a great Stephen Drew jumping catch. Those three batters hit the ball very hard, but Holliday was the only one with something to show for it.
