Matt Holliday's second homer of the series got the Cards on the board in the fourth inning.

Matt Holliday hit a solo home run off of Jon Lester with one out in the fourth inning to move the St. Louis Cardinals into a 1-1 tie with the Boston Red Sox heading into the fifth inning in Game 5 of the World Series on Monday.

Holliday, who entered the game with the Cardinals' only home run of the series, clobbered a 1-0 fastball from Lester into dead-center field. It was Holliday's fourth home run of the 2013 postseason.

Carlos Beltran came a few feet away from giving the Cards the lead in the next at-bat, but his long fly ball fell into the glove of Red Sox left fielder Jonny Gomes for the second out of the fourth. Lester retired Yadier Molina on a sharp liner to shorstop to get out of the inning. He has allowed the one run on three hits through four innings and has struck out five.

Despite trailing by a run, Adam Wainwright is pitching much better than he did in the series opener. The Cardinals' ace has six punch-outs and has kept Boston's bats relatively quiet, with the exception of David Ortiz.

Ortiz drove in the only run of the game on a first-inning double and also singled to start the fourth for his 10th hit in 13 World Series at-bats. He was erased on a double play grounder off the bat of Daniel Nava to end the inning.
