Boston Takes Game 1 Of The World Series, And Unapologetically

David Ortiz, Mike Napoli and Jon Lester were quite a combination for the Boston Red Sox in Game 1 of the World Series on Wednesday night.

Ortiz and Napoli drove in three runs apiece as Boston clobbered the St. Louis Cardinals 8-1 at Fenway Park. Ortiz hit a two-run homer and a sacrifice fly after Napoli put the Red Sox ahead with a three-run double in the first inning. Ortiz's got a sac-fly in the second inning and a home run five innings later. The two-run blast drove in Dustin Pedroia, who was 2-for-4 with an RBI single and two runs scored.

In baseball, Ryan Dempster plunked Alex Rodriguez with a pitch in the second inning of Boston's 9-6 loss to the New York Yankees, leading to the ejection of manager Joe Girardi.

The benches and bullpens emptied following the plunking, but order was quickly restored without further incident.

Then Rodriguez got the better of Dempster four innings later, hitting his 649th career home run. It sparked a four-run rally that turned a 6-3 deficit into a 7-6 lead.
