World Series Game 5 Off To Familiar Start

In Sunday night's Game 4, the Cardinals got the start they wanted against Derek Holland when Rafael Furcal led off with a blistering line drive. However, it was caught at third base by Adrian Beltre.

In Monday night's Game 5, the Cardinals got the start they wanted against C.J. Wilson when Rafael Furcal led off with a blistering line drive. However, it was caught at third base by Adrian Beltre. And today is Furcal's birthday, too!

The rest of the half-inning was familiar, too. Sunday, Holland started 1-2-3. Monday, Wilson started 1-2-3. After Furcal's out, Allen Craig grounded out, and then Albert Pujols launched a 3-0 high fastball deep but not deep enough to straightaway center. So while Wilson didn't exactly generate weak contact, he did generate three outs, and now it's the Rangers' turn to try to get out to an early lead against Chris Carpenter.
