ST. LOUIS (AP) — The World Series has shifted to St. Louis. So has momentum following the Cardinals 4-2 victory over Boston that evened the Fall Classic at a game apiece Thursday night.

The Cardinals did little right in losing the opener 8-1 and found themselves trailing 2-1 in Game 2 following a two-run homer by David Ortiz in the sixth inning. But the Redbirds took advantage of two Red Sox errors on the same sacrifice fly in the seventh. The miscues by catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia and reliever Craig Breslow led to the tying and go-ahead runs. Carlos Beltran followed with an RBI single and finished with two hits after being questionable for the game because of a rib injury.

The pitching matchup for Game 3 tonight (Saturday) has Jake Peavy going for Boston against Joe Kelly. You can hear the game on KJAN, with the pregame beginning at 6-p.m., and the first pitch at 7:07.
