Back-to-back nights of game-ending plays in the bottom of the ninth inning is shaping this World Series into a classic. With two historic franchises battling in their fourth World Series dating back to 1946, the current players are certainly leaving their marks for sports historians to record. This game ended when Boston Red Sox relief pitcher Koji Uehara threw to first baseman Mike Napoli and picked off St. Louis Cardinals pinch runner Kolten Wong with two out in the bottom of the ninth. The 4-2 win allowed the Red Sox to tie the Series at two games apiece.
