Cardinals take 1-0 lead on Matt Holliday's triple

Bob DeChiara-USA TODAY Sports

Matt Holliday doesn't hit triples often, but his three-bagger in the fourth inning of Game 2 gave the Cardinals a rare lead in a World Series game against the Red Sox.

The Cardinals got on the board first in Game 2 of the World Series on Yadier Molina's RBI groundout in the top of the fourth inning.

Molina's chopper, which went just over the head of Red Sox starter John Lackey, plated Matt Holliday, who led off the inning with a triple. It was Holliday's firs postseason three-bagger in his career, and only his eighth since he stopped playing his home games in the triple-friendly environment of Coors Field after the 2008 season.


The lead is the Cardinals' first in their last six World Series games against the Red Sox, dating back to 2004.
