GIF: Wainwright, Molina let pop up fall between them

World Series Game 1: Follow live | Umpires overturned blown call

What is going on with the experienced and talented Cardinals through two innings? After normally sure-handed shortstop Pete Kozma botched a routine double-play ball in the first -- leading to three Red Sox runs -- this happened in the second (thanks to @CrashburnAlley):

Another view, thanks to @buzzfeedsports:

That's the best catcher in baseball, Yadier Molina, and veteran ace Adam Wainwright. Weird to see that happen.

As an aside, it was ruled a single due to not being touched. What a dumb rule. That's clearly an error.

That's not significant, though. What is: Stephen Drew reached on the play. He'd end up scoring later that inning.
