Cardinals vs. Red Sox World Series Game 6 score update: Boston extends lead to 6-0

Jamie Squire

The Red Sox are getting closer and closer to a championship after abusing Cardinals rookie starter Michael Wacha and reliever Lance Lynn.

The Boston Red Sox teed off on St. Louis Cardinals pitching for three runs in the bottom of the fourth inning to take a 6-0 lead in Game 6 of the World Series.

Stephen Drew, who entered the game 4-for-51 at the plate in the 2013 postseason, homered off of Cards starter Michael Wacha to extend Boston's advantage to 4-0. Jacoby Ellsbury doubled two batters later, and after Wacha intentionally walked David Ortiz for the second time, the rookie was pulled in favor of Lance Lynn.

Things didn't go much better for Lynn. He allowed an RBI hit to Mike Napoli before loading the bases with a walk to Jonny Gomes. That resulted in another bases-loaded at-bat for Shane Victorino, who smacked a run-scoring single to record his fourth RBI in the game. Getting hits with the bags juiced is nothing new for the Red Sox outfielder. He has driven in more runs in that situation than any other player in MLB history, per the team.

Lynn was replaced after Victorino's hit by Seth Maness, who struck out Xander Bogaerts to end the inning.
