Game 6 of the World Series between the Cardinals and Red Sox is looking like a blowout in the making (it's 6-0 Sox at this writing), but the visiting Cards have had their chances on Wednesday night.

In the first inning, Matt Carpenter and Carlos Beltran both scorched balls off starter John Lackey, but thanks to defensive positioning they wound up as noisy outs. In the second, Allen Craig and Yadier Molina started off the inning with sharp singles, but Lackey notched three straight outs on a line-out, fly-out and strikeout. In the third, a one-out single by Carpenter preceded an inning-ending double play. Finally in the fourth, Craig singled and Molina reached via error with one out, but Matt Adams lined out and Freese struck out looking to conclude the frame.

For St. Louis in Game 6, it's often been an unfortunate case of "hitting 'em where they are," but the reality is that they're 0-for-5 with runners in scoring position through four innings. Coming into the game, the Cards had left 34 runners on base as a team in the series, and that tally is climbing by the inning.
